Thirsk and Sowerby Harriers - KIlburn 7

The Kilburn 7, part of the annual Kilburn Feast, took place at the weekend and, for a change this year, the weather was fine and warm - a bit too warm for running this tough, scenic race which passes through Coxwold, past Byland Abbey and back through Oldstead.  It being a Club Championship race,  there was a good turnout of Harriers, and Stephan Tomaszewski was first club finisher, 26th in 46.48 minutes.  Rob Burn was next, 64th in 51.55, not far ahead of Lorraine Hiles, who just gets better and better.  Lorraine came 67th, 10th lady finisher and 1st F45, in 52.11,  Martyn Coy 90th in 55.05,  Sarah Glover, in a rare road outing, 104th in 56.28, (a couple of minutes ahead of her Dad!),  Geoff Bullock 127th in 58.23,  Angela Eilbeck 134th in 59.05,  Fiona Needham 147th, given the same time as Alan Harman, 60.39,  David Goddard 180th in 64.25,  Christine Burn 203rd in 68.19,  Phillip Craig 203rd in 68.19,  Cath Lumb 226th in 72.23,  Janet Balmain 230th in 72.54,  Lynne Jackson 230th in 72.55,  Lisa Brown 231st in 73.00,  Ian Codling 233rd in 73.27,  and Marian Codling 260th in 82.32.The previous day, Fran Jeffery put herself severely to the test in the Osmotherly Phoenix Marathon - you could have chosen to do 33 miles if you'd wanted to.  This tough, off-road race attracted 290 starters on a fine, warm morning.  The race started pleasantly enough through leafy country lanes, but once the climbing started, it seemed incessant, including a long pull up to Cringle Moor and Botton Head and an uncomfortable descent into Seave Green.  Conditions underfoot were, understandably,  very wet in places, and Fran was pleased to finish in a time of 7 hours 14 minutes, very tired, but keen to repeat the process next year and recommending it to all!Preparations are well underway for the new Sessay Swift 6k round an altogether flatter road course at the pleasant village of Sessay near Thirsk, at 7.30 pm on Thursday 23rd August.  Information can be found on the Thirsk & Sowerby Harriers website.
