Weekend Summary 12th/13th May

After our first club event at Driffield, you’d excuse YVTT for deciding to take a bit of time off.  Well, not our Vikings! Everybody was straight back to it over the course of the past couple of weeks, taking part in both triathlon and running events.

The first result to report on was missed from Driffield.  Sarah Jones also competing at the event, adding to the brilliant performances of the day, finishing the event in 01:31:44.  A belated well done Sarah!

On the Tuesday following Driffield, Mark Wilson and Dave Burrows took part in Tadcaster 10k, part of the York Summer League.  Both put in good races, finishing in 00:46:16 and 00:44:10 respectively.  Well done!

Into last weekend, and we had a large number of Vikings all out competing on the 13th.  In the Evolve Sprint Triathlon, Lorna Watson, Helen Dews and Anne Lewis all got their first points logged of the season in the Women’s Club Championship.  They finished their races in:

  • Lorna Watson – 01:42:02
  • Helen Dews – 01:45:26
  • Anne Lewis – 01:49:28

Well done ladies!

Our juniors were also out competing, with Alana Reveley and Martha Moore taking part in Wakefield Junior Duathlon.  Both put in brilliant races, finishing close together in 25th and 26th places.  Alana finished her race in 00:18:48, with Martha not too far behind in 00:18:53.  Well done girls!

Our runners were also out over the weekend, with Shelley Jamison, Stacey Calvert and Mark Wilson all taking part in Leeds Half Marathon.  All 3 put in some great runs with Mark finishing the race in 01:41:58, and Shelley and Stacey crossing the line together in 01:58:18.  Shelley’s result meant we have a new leader at the top of the Women’s Run Championship. Well done all!

In Heslington Parkrun, Sarah Jones was also running, competing in a competitive event with 263 other runners.  Sarah put in another good performance, finishing the 5km race in 00:27:18.  Well done Sarah!

Over the course of the last week, Beth Grogan has taken part in back to back races, on 15th and 16th May.  On 15th, Beth completed the East Hulls Harriers 4 Mile race in a great time of 00:28:57, and on the 16th, followed up with another impressive result in the Askern 10k, finishing that race in 00:46:55.  More great running Beth, well done!
