Low Bradfield SYCAA 5 Mile Result

Race Date: Wednesday 29th April 2015

Before we get onto the results, please take a moment to read the following statement posted on the SYCAA website.

Despite the earlier request re parking, we again had serious problems on the night, with people choosing to park on the road.

Race organiser for fixture 3 (Mike Levery of Sheffield Running Club) has asked that the following information be communicated to, and understood by all runners:-

I hope everyone enjoyed Wednesday night’s race Low Bradfield which had a record field for the venue. However, I’d just like to make participants aware of some of the issues we face. The continuing use of this course is on the basis of free movement of traffic in both directions as agreed with South Yorkshire Police and Sheffield City Council. We have given assurances that this is the case apart from 2/3 minutes at the start, and a 15 minute diversion of traffic in the approach road down the hill to Low Bradfield. Their view is that should this not happen, then the event will be subject to road closures and the costs will make it unviable. In addition, it will also signal the end of the Dam Flask Relays, a popular and well supported event for clubs. Despite no waiting cones on the dam area, and the approach to the finish, some runners still insist on parking their cars and ignoring the no waiting cones. We do it for your safety – a complaint to the police or council will almost certainly signal the end of running races round the Dam Flask course. Please bear this in mind next time we use the course. The loss of this venue will be upsetting for the vast majority of runners who are parked up in Low Bradfield by our marshals.

To emphasise the point about parking, at least one runner fell to the ground very hard right at the start of the race as the entire field had to compress due to the parked cars.  Next time, that could be you, so please heed all warnings and directions from the marshals at these events.

Okay, onto business.

Chilly, but dry, you can’t ask for much more than that in late April.  Sunshine?  Get away with yer!

In a record field of 389 we again had the biggest club turnout of the evening with a whopping 86 Striders out racing.  Barnsley Harriers with 38 and Kimberworth Striders with 35 were a distant second and third in that regard.

Will Beauchamp of Sheffield RC won the race in 26:05 with Fiona Davies of Kingstone Runners the first lady home in 29:56.

A quick mention for our very own Hannah Helmore who finished 4th lady.

The fourth and final race in the series is at Oxspring (near Penistone) on Wednesday 13th May.  Be there, its FREE racing and we might need as many people as possible to help towards the team prizes.
