Lincs Urban League 2023 – Final Race & Overall Report

The Lincs Urban League series for 2023 moved to a rainy and wind-swept conclusion on July 19th, with HALO hosting the event on the new map of Ashby, Scunthorpe. HALO supremo, Pete Harris, took to the planner’s chair and made some great use of this interesting area. On the Long course, Liam Harrington took the stage win and, in doing so, sealed the series victory on countback and retained his trophy from last season, with Paul Murgatroyd having to settle for second and Mike Chapman in third completing the podium. In the Women’s championship, Jane Deville finished ahead of her rival, Hannah Mather, on the night, but it wasn’t enough to wrest the title from Hannah, who claimed the series victory by just the single point, with Jane in second and Andrea Page in third.

The Medium saw Paulius Malkevicius take his second win of the season, and keep his title from last year, with Wayne Byrne losing out on countback and Pete Harris completing the podium. Amanda Roberts had already convincingly sealed the Women’s Medium trophy a couple of weeks ago, with Clare Hanna finishing in second and Hayley Fox in third, following the Ashby race. On the Short, Mary Vickers beat Dorothy Smith by one second on the night and this meant taking the series victory by just a single point, with Sharon Mather in second and Dorothy in third positions respectively. Finally, LOG won back the inter-club cup, with a commanding 214 points victory over HALO. Points from the race for both individual and club trophies can be seen here, with the final series tables here.

Our thanks to all the planners and IT gurus who have helped put the series on and to HALO’s Brian Hostad, who compiled the scores and tables each week. See you for more LUL action in 2024!

Wolds MMM 2023 – Race Report

The wind blew and the clouds came and went, but all was well with the 42 runners who took to the footpaths and country lanes around Hagworthingham on Saturday 15th July for the 11th edition for the Wolds MMM. The George and Dragon proved to be very hospitable hosts and it was a great venue for this classic endurance event.

On the day, David Sparshott repeated his victory from 2022, with an impressive tally of 330 points out of the maximum of 470 available. Sebastien Loosen took second with a superior haul of 350 points, but time penalties knocked him off the top of the podium. Finally, LOG stalwart, John Mather, cruised into a comfortable 3rd place with 290 points, just ahead of Richard Dearden, who was beaten on overall time. The top female was Jane Deville, who bagged a noteworthy 250 points, comfortably ahead of Kate Brown, with 200, and Johanna Powell, with 178.

Final overall results can be found here. See you all again next year, when we’ll hopefully be returning to South Ormsby and the Massingberd Arms.
