Sunday 30th October – Yorkshire Coast 10km

Report from OAC’s Tom Marsh:

The weather was glorious in Scarborough on Sunday for the Yorkshire Coast 10km organised by Scarborough A.C.

The route took competitors along the seafront starting from the recently renovated Spa Complex in the South Bay, to the Sea Life Centre at the head of the North Bay on an out and back course.

With a cooling sea breeze and a clear blue sky, it was a privilege to be one of the 1,114 runners taking part on which was a fast and flat course. If only I’d have had time for more training recently I could have been on for a PB but I had to settle for a respectable time of 41:37 and 84th position.

The winner of the race was Andrew Wiles (New Marske Harriers) in a time of 30:57 and the first lady was Kate Avery (Shildon) in a time of 35:39, finishing in eleventh position overall.

It was great to see another Otley vest in amongst the large crowd with Reid Haddow finishing 392nd (49:58). It is certainly a race I will be returning to next year.

Full results here.
