Race 13 of the club’s Summer championship came in the form of the 24th edition of the Tholthorpe 10k (or if preferred, Wetherby 10k in the afternoon) hosted by Easingwold running club from which members earn valuable points on the championship table.
The race is is a well-respected, friendly event, attracting entrants from surrounding areas including Scarborough, Ripon, Thirsk & a large contingent from close by York as well as surrounding areas. The attractive course starts round the corner from the village green and passes through local countryside, winding through and finishes on back at the Village Green by the duck pond. The route was well marshalled by friendly, supportive marshals, and with welcome drinks stations at 3.5k & 7k made for excellent organisation. Finishers were rewarded with a commemorative mug. Eccleshill’s finishers were: Marc Steele 45:39, Julie Steele 52:26, Sarah Rawlings 54:22 & Sarah Myers 61:26.
Well done everyone and big thanks to our support crew!
