Race 2 - Coniston 14 Sat 31st March 2012

 

The second Grand Prix race of the 2012 season saw 21 Blyth runners and their family and friends travel to Coniston for the very popular Coniston 14 (actually 13.875 Mile) road race. This was the first time that this very scenic but extremely undulating race had been a part of the Grand Prix. Fortunately for the runners, but not so for the spectators, the recent bout of summer weather had deserted us to leave sunny but cool conditions.

Although an unusual distance, the organises kindly put out a marker at half marathon distance which enabled Steve Dobby and Heather Barrass to record half marathon pb's, good going on a tough course and only a week after they both ran the Wallington half.

First Blyth runner home in 42nd place was Robbie in a time of 1:29:20, and first Blyth female (finishing 4th in her age category) was Heather Christopher in 1:40:08. A special mention also for Susanne, who finished only a minute behind Heather and was 2nd in her age category, which is good going considering that she had run a marathon just a week before.

 

A note about the results; finishing positions and hence Grand Prix positions are based on the "gun" time, the times shown are from the "chip" times.
