The Yorkshire Coast 10K, Scarborough – 2 PB’s and a 3rd age group placing!
6 members of Louth AC competed in the Scarborough 10K on Sunday 22nd October 2017 in less than perfect conditions for racing, due to the windy conditions on the east coast. There were 1841 finishers.
So it was fantastic to see that 2 members achieved Personal Bests and 4 members were just outside their personal best by less than 2 min 23 secs.
New PBs for Malcolm Cope in 51 min 41 finishes 600th (10th out of 26 in the Vet 65 age category) and for Christopher Taylor in 40 min 04, (tantalising just outside the 40 minute barrier) in 77th position (40th out of 295 in the 18-39 age category).
Jane Cope in 55 min 28 finishes 847th (27th out of 119 in the Vet 50 age category) and Kerry Stainton 44 min 42 finishes 213th (5th out of 167 in the Vet 45 age category).
Kevin Wallis 40 min 39 finishes 89th (3rd out of 77 in the Vet 55 age category) and Kevin Houghton 40 min 53 (only 30 seconds outside his PB) finishes 92nd (13th out of 138 in the Vet 40 age category).
