Captain Cooks Fell Race Results 3013
A New Year, good weather, what better way to start 2013? Another fantastic entry when we are just relieving you of your money — for charity! Speaking of which over £1700 was raised which will go to:- A four figure sum to ‘The Princes Trust’ for use in the M’bro. area with smaller sums to an independent, adult, autistic unit in East Cleveland, Yatton House at Gt. Ayton and Gt. Ayton library trust. In the race itself there was a head to head for first and second between Paul Lowe and Jim Bulman where Jim eventually got clear in the second half. Cameron Taylor and Paul Butler were up with them up to half way and were only seperated by the thickness of a vest at the finish. In the women’s event Catherine Williamson completed a holiday double having won the Guisborough race last week, as did Jim. She was given early competition from Clare Pearson with Carol Morgan not far away. As in the men’s race she was very quick over the last half and came in a clear winner.
I will leave the reader to peruse the team results which were very tight and involved a record number of completed teams. Many many thanks to The Royal Oak, and the many helpers who have made the holiday events possible. Hopefully I will see many of you in a few days at The Clay Bank East race…… Best wishes and a Happy New Year… Dave
