In spite of pretty cold conditions some 23 runners turned out for the handicap – some very skimpily dressed to meet the horror/ supernatural theme! Nick Young appeared again as Santa and entrtained the bemused motorists passing by. Richard Hall was first finisher in 40.27 and Jan Young was first female finisher in 44.35. There were also a few who dropped out!
Prizes were awarded as follows:
Richard & Jan for first finishers
Mike Bennett – fastest male time
Nina Mason – fastest female time
Rhys & Rhianne Goddard – children participants
Liz Lamb – best female fancy dress
Kevin – best male fancy dress both judged by Santa and his elves!!
Spot prizes went to:
Shaun – who had already run the Sunderland parkrun, had reccied the course and was only 3 seconds behind Mike.
Roz – for her Santa’s elf costume and being a very close second to Nina.
Alister – who got Santa mixed up with Satan!
And finally George Nicholson who frightened the traffic as King Kong.
London Marathon numbers went to Alister Robson, Maggie Thompson and Christine Farnsworth – reserve is Dave Walker.
