Results Roundup

Updated: Oct 15, 2019

Hat off to our marathon and half marathon runners this weekend. Ben completed the Kielder Marathon whilst Lucy was running her socks off around the Manchester Half.

It looked like a cracking Sunday Social Run with Full English to follow. Top quality prep for the week ahead and I hope everyone has been suitably inspired by the events of the weekend.

Has there ever been another time when marathon running coverage has transcended the sport? In little over 24 hours we saw the astonishing Eliud Kipchoge dip under the magical two hour mark with a little help from his friends. Pace makers who are World and European champions in their own right. Not to be outdone we then saw Brigid Kosgei destroy Paula Radcliffe's 16 year old world record in Chicago and finish a mere 4 minutes behind Mo Farah.

Question is, who was your standout performer over the weekend? It's a real shame that such incredible performances from both leading Kenyans has lead some commentators to focus too much on the beneficial impact of footwear. If I had a few hundred quid lying around then would Kipchoge's shoes power me to a new PB round the streets of York this Sunday? Would they hell! Sport has benefitted from enhancements in technology since time began and it will continue to do so. Let's just revel in the quality of both individual performances and I hope they inspire you to run to the best of your ability this coming weekend. I for one can't wait to see what the legions of YPH vested superstars achieve on Sunday.

For now, here's what happened in the weekend just gone.
