Yet again another hugely successful THIRSK 10 in the bag. Thank you for coming!
Well done to all participants who between them have some great PBs. Having your fellow runners cheer you on is awesome.
Thanks to each and everyone who has helped whether you’ve supported, cheered, run, cycled, registered, watered, driven, collected, bagged, photographed, car parked, fun run helpers, scouts, sign erected, marshalled or been at the end of my phone calls and emails to answer my never ending questions. A day like today doesn’t happen without a team, it’s no one individual.
Our first aiders said it was a quiet day at the office with only 2 runners visiting them after completing the race after an asthma and a panic attack so that’s good news.
Dame Tanni Grey Thompson and husband Ian came and supported us and Tanni went round with the last wheelchair racer whilst Ian raced himself. The fastest wheelchair racer Callum Hall wanted 40 minutes and led superbly by John Withinshaw on his bike managed a fab 39:59!
The race winner was Graham Rush who is a V40(!) from Leeds City AC and ran a fantastic 49:04 breaking our old course record from 2020 of 51:54. May for perspective the first 3 finishers beat the course record!
A fast day at THIRSK 10 with last years winner, Rob Scott finishing 7th.
