Nine club mem­bers com­peted in the an­nual Bridling­ton Easter Five-Mile Dash.

Michael Dow­son was first home for the club in 10th over­all of 267 fin­ish­ers.

He was closely fol­lowed by Rhona Mar­shall, who was 13th over­all and the first fe­male fin­isher, and who led the women’s team who were first team.

Rhona’s mother Sue Haslam was the sec­ond scorer for the team after fin­ish­ing up in a most notable sev­enth and first Over-60.

Jo Ire­land closed in for the team in 21st and Linda Hinch­liffe fol­lowed in 67th

Dun­can Smart led the re­main­ing men in 14th over­all and third Over-45.

Paul Thomp­son was next to fin­ish in 20th over­all and was first Over-55. James Mar­shall fol­lowed in 39th male and Brian Rutt was 90th male.

In the one-mile Easter Scurry Run for chil­dren, 10-year-old Gemma Tozer fin­ished in third place over­all, and was closely fol­lowed by her nine-year-old brother Al­fie Tozer, who was fourth over­all and sec­ond boy.

Four club mem­bers com­peted in the an­nual New Mar-

ske Mer­maid 10-kilo­me­tre

road race which at­tracts top run­ners from North York­shire and far afield, and starts at the Mer­maid Pub­lic House, with a fin­ish on the sea front.

Glyn He­witt was led the club’s quar­tet when fin­ish­ing up in 67th over­all of 246 in 42 min­utes 3 sec­onds.

He was fol­lowed by Paul Chap­man, who has clearly ben­e­fited from a good cross­coun­try sea­son to record a per­sonal best time of 42 min­utes 30 sec­onds when fin­ish­ing 72nd over­all.

The ev­er­green Neil Scru­ton was 74th and most no­tably first Over-70 in 43 min­utes12 sec­onds and has been sub­se­quently ranked num­ber one the very lat­est York­shire Rank­ings and sixth in the United King­dom list as a re­sult.

Lor­raine He­witt ran well to fin­ish 36th fe­male in 53 min­utes 3 sec­onds

Just 48 hours after an Over-55 win at the Easter Dash, Paul Thomp­son com­peted in the Elv­ing­ton Flyer 10-mile road race. The race was a com­mem­o­ra­tive event to cel­e­brate the 100th an­niver­sary of the for­ma­tion of the Royal Air Force and started and fin­ished on the for­mer base’s run­way.

Paul flew round the course in a per­sonal best time of 68 min­utes 21 sec­onds, and his over­all sixth place fin­ish and first Over-55 place was re­warded by head­ing the York­shire Rank­ings for his age group.
