Results Roundup to 10 Feb - UPDATED

Updated: Feb 12, 2019

What is the collective noun for a large group of Postal Harriers? Whatever it is, the pack was in evidence this weekend. Results as follows

We have an update as Dave Cook successfully completed the Hardmoors Saltburn Marathon. All 28 miles in 6hr25mins. Well done Dave.

28 miles I hear you say! You get free bonus miles at Hardmoors events, real value for money. And no one complains that the course is long!

PECO Cross Country League, Race 5 at Roundhay Park. Well done to all 11 Harriers taking part.

Minster FM & York Sport Charity Triathlon

Four Harriers took part in the first charity triathlon organised by Minster FM and held at York Sports Village. Teams of 6 worked in relays to cover as much distance as possible with 4 hours in the pool followed by 4 hours on the bikes and 4 hours running.

Ian Smithson & Danielle Gordon represented the Trigger Happy Tri team raising money for New Earswick pool. They came a superb 2nd place covering 180K, only 18K behind the winning team, York Tri Club.

Lucy Turner & Simon Middleton were part of the Make It York team and they covered 173K to finish in 3rd place out of 6 teams. The highlight being Lucy's effort in the pool where she covered a parkrun distance in the pool alone.

It’s great up north

Well done to the three Posties taking on the legendary GNR on Sunday. Andy Heather was first back in 1:39:14. Looking good for a bash at sub 3:30 around the streets of York next month. Hannah Smithson

A first class weekend

Plenty of evidence of YPH runners in action over the weekend. We had 20 runners taking part in 7 different parkrun events. Ian just missed out on a podium finish by 21 seconds at the Allerthorpe Triat

I think it's called 'a battering of Harriers'.
