Eight club mem­bers com­peted in the third run­ning of the Vale of York Half Marathon which was based at Sher­burn in El­met, and is prov­ing to be a most pop­u­lar event and this year had 1,680 fin­ish­ers at the Sher­burn Aero Club.

De­spite some strong winds the club mem­bers achieved some good times for the half marathon dis­tance.

Phil Markham was the first fin­isher for the club and his time of 1 hour 25 min­utes and 56 sec­onds was the fastest for the club this year so far.

War­ren Foster ran round with his daugh­ter Caitlin Foster, who ran as an in­di­vid­ual, and he helped her achieve a per­sonal best time of 107.56 when they fin­ished to­gether.

Lisa Bourne led the club’s four fe­male run­ners in 110.56 and was fol­lowed by Emma Foster in 120.08, So­phie Vaughan, who achieved a per­sonal best time of 138.55, and Liz Raper.
