Hornsea Rotary One Third Marathon National Championship
Next race is on Sunday 9 April 2017
A huge thank you to everyone who took part in our eighth 'One Third Marathon' on Sunday 10th April 2016 at Densholme Farm, Great Hatfield. The numbers were increasing year after year and proving to be one of the most popular shorter runs in the north of England.
It was a great success, with more than 600 runners and supporters packing the country roads, which enabled the Rotary Club of Hornsea and East Riding to give Marie Curie Cancer Care an even bigger donation to help fund one or two nurses working in the East Riding.
The weather was exceptionally good on Sunday spring morning, with sunshine and gentle breeze and was perfect for running.
Out of 500 who registered, 420 turned out to support this annual run.
A huge thank you to all the Rotary Club members, spouses and partners who worked so hard as an organised team and to our sponsors - Neil Hudgell solicitors, HPS Estate Agents in Hornsea, William's Farm Kitchen of Hornsea, and Tesco in Hornsea. Thanks also to the many young helpers from Hornsea Army & AIr Cadets, Canine Partners, Marie Curie associates and the Parish Councillors of Sigglesthorne and Great Hatfield. Special thanks go to Denys Fell from Densholme Farm, without whom we would not have achieved this, and all the fundraising team for their hard work in organising such an excellent event.
The top prizes of the day went to Steve Bateson from East Hull Harriers and Carla Stansfield of City of Hull AC for first places in male and female, respectively. First place in the Over 70 vet male went to Vic Shirley and Pam Atkins of Beverley AC for the Over 70 female. An exceptional prize for over 80 goes to Robert Thomson of Haltemprice RRC.
The year's winning Club was Scarborough Athletic Club with a finishing inter-club time of 61 mins and 16 seconds. The winners of the team were Fundraising Feat team with an average scored time of 61 minutes 40 seconds.
Thanks to all the Runners, Helpers and Sponsors for making it such a great success. We are looking forward to seeing you all on the 9th of April.
