Playing Catch Up – Lots of Weekend Summaries!

Well Vikings, it’s been a while since our last report.  Apologies, the last few weeks have been somewhat hectic, but we’re catching up slowly!  Lots of races to report on from the past few weeks, in Bike, Run and Club Championships.

Starting with our cyclists, there have been a handful of competitors taking part in Selby Cycling Club time trial races over the past few weeks.  On 20th June, Shaun Sumner, Beth Grogan, Steven Dews, Sarah Weston and Heather Blakey all took part in the 10 mile race.  Their results were as follows:

  • Steven Dews – 00:23:37
  • Shaun Sumner – 00:25:39
  • Beth Grogan – 00:30:26
  • Heather Blakey – 00:31:56
  • Sarah Weston – 00:32:05

Well done all to all of our cyclists, some great results!

Next up our runners, who took part in a number of events over the past few weeks, with some changes in Championship positions.  Mark Wilson’s result saw him top the Men’s Run Championship, and Beth Grogan’s result saw her top the Women’s Run Championship.   Alana Reveley ran herself a new PB to increase her lead in the Junior Girls Run Championship, and Finn Greenhouse placed 3rd overall from 102 competitors in his race to keep top spot in the Junior Boys Run Championship.  Their results were as follows:

  • Beth Grogan – Goole Riverbank Challenge 9 Mile: 01:11:23

Great running everyone, some brilliant results!

In the Club Championships, we had some brilliant results come in, across both junior and senior events.  Alana Reveley and Martha Moore both scored high in the LBT Junior Duathlon, Colin Brown went long in the Falcon Middle Distance Triathlon, and Steven Dews make a real statement in points scoring in the Dambuster Standard Distance Triathlon.  Their results were as follows:

Some fantastic results there, well done everyone!

And with that, you’re all caught up!  Another good few weeks racing for our Vikings, and some real moves in our Club Championship events.  Remember to use our new Results Form to submit future race results, I hope it proves nice and simple for everyone to use – http://yorkshirevikings.org/?page_id=2131.

Unfortunately, in getting everyone caught up, there is going to be a further delay on our next race reports.  Next week is holiday time for me, so your next race report will in the week of 2nd July.  All your results will collect up in the meantime for when I get back.

Finally, some very special mentions in this week’s report.  With the delay in reporting, we are yet to congratulate our latest Vikings to join Team GB Age Group teams.  Shelley Jamison and Paul May both recently qualified for Duathlon and Aquabike respectively – a huge achievement for you both, a massive congratulations from us all at Yorkshire Vikings!  Well done.

Weekend Summary 26th/27th May

The final weekend in May was a much quieter one for all Vikings, with only 3 Vikings taking part in events.  We do also have 2 results that were missing from previous weeks to report on.

First, the missed results.  There have been a number of junior events recently, and unfortunately Daniel Campbell’s results were missed from a couple of them.

Daniel first took part in the Wakefield Duathlon, on 13th May.  On the hilly course Daniel put in another great race, finishing in 17th place in 00:17:25.

Next up for Daniel was the LBT Junior Aquathlon, where he competed along with the other 88 competitors in his category.  In a time of 00:08:17, Daniel finished that race in an amazing 8th place, well and truly grabbing hold of 1st position in the Junior Boys Club Championship.  Brilliant results Daniel, well done!

Into last weekend, after a few weeks of triathlon events, we just had runners out this weekend, with a handful of runners moving up their respective Run Championship leaderboards.

First up were Lucy Jamison and Stacey Calvert, who took part in Selby Parkrun on Saturday.  Lucy improved on her time from the previous week, finishing the race in a brilliant 00:26:07.  Stacey also had a good race, finishing in 24th place in 00:23:19.  Stacey’s result saw her take the lead in the Women’s Run Championship, and Lucy’s result moved her up to 2nd place in the Junior Girl’s Run Championship, just 0.87 points behind the leader!  Great running both!

On Sunday, Beth Grogan took part in the Humber Bridge 10k.  The race was very competitive, with 375 people taking part.  Beth put in another great run, finishing the race in 00:47:17.  That result also getting a big jump up the Women’s Run Championship leaderboard, pushing Beth into 3rd place. Well done Beth!
