The Scarborough News - - SPORT -

Two club mem­bers com­peted in the Castle­ton Show road

race, which is de­scribed as a road race for fell run­ners due to the hilly course of ap­prox­i­mately six miles. Rhona Mar­shall was a closeup sec­ond fe­male and first Over-35 in 42 min­utes 7 sec­onds.

She was fol­lowed by her mother Sue Haslam (pic­tured

right), who was fifth fe­male and first Over-60 in 45.18. Katy Rawns­ley com­peted in the Kilnsey Show Fell Race.

The course con­sisted of a test­ing up and down course of 1.2 miles with 407 feet of climb.

Katy, who is more at home at road races, was pleased to fin­ish 10th fe­male and sec­ond Over-45 in 13 min­utes 20 sec­onds.

Nikki Carr com­peted in the so called short course of the LakeDistric­tMoun­tainTrial Races, which con­sisted of a ac­tual 11.4 miles with 4,300 feet of el­e­va­tion. There was strong wind and rain and vis­i­bil­ity re­stricted due to a low cloud base. Nikki fin­ished fourth fe­male and 18th over­all of 47 fin­ish­ers in 4 hours 11 min­utes. 13 starters failed to fin­ish.
