Pearson Makes His Marc - UPDATED

It was the Ripon 10 mile road yesterday, a hilly affair around Fountains Abbey. Delighted to report that the first York runner back was wearing our colours. A mighty impressive 14th out of 318 for Marc Pearson.


Great result Marc, hope there’s enough in the tank for Tad. Our on course reporters managed to grab a quick interview with the YPH hero post race. What will go down as one of the great quotes went like this, “After the first half mile I passed one person and didn’t get passed by anyone!” Obviously made the wrong deodorant choice yesterday Marc.


I've managed to miss a couple of chaps in the Leeds Half and also Dee's latest marathon (ultra) in the Hardmoors event. Sorry to all of you for missing them off the original post.
