📰 Marathon season kicked in on Sunday as a number of Goole Viking Striders took on the 26.2 miles in Manchester.

Julie Masterman was first back for the club and fantastically the first in her age category, in a time of three hours, 19 minutes and 59 seconds.

Bob Coates was second, an unbelievable marathon debut in his first year as a club runner, 3.38.41, and Patrick Harness third 3.40.01.

Wayne Gardiner was next, 3.57.49, with Philppa Oldridge running a brilliant 4.29.41 on her marathon debut. Well done to Sandy Midgley, 4.35.28, and to four other 26.2 first-timers in Giuseppe Barbacane (4.36.55), Sophie Booth (5.13.18) and Rachael and Steven O’Brian (both 5.44.00). Despite saying they won’t be back, they will!

Praise too to Steve Tether, formally of the GVS parish, who was in excellent form for 3.04.41.

There was racing elsewhere on Sunday, James Williamson’s endless run of PBs extending at the Hornsea third-marathon in 57.58, with Emma Tune the fourth lady overall in 63.51.

And last, but no way least, well done to Jonny McFaul, 40.38 at the Lincoln 10k after a spell out injured.

:: thanks to Gemma Oughtred and Tom Bramham for making their way to the finish line in Manchester with cakes, and Mick Pollard for travelling over to take pictures and offer support ... See more
