Friday 29th April – Mermaid 10k
The mighty Quakers were out in force on Good Friday down the road at Marske for the Mermaid 10k, which is a flat, fast course and ideal if you are chasing a PB. The weather was hot with a slight breeze on the sea front and Quakers Running Club had an amazing 59 members taking part with Michael Joyeux being the overall winner and first in his age category… fantastic running, Michael! Brian Martin scooped the 50 points with his age adjusted time of 30:26:03 and also 1st in his age category, congratulations Brian! Michael Joyeux collected 49 points with his age adjusted time of 32:12:04 and Billy Harris took 48 points for his age adjusted time of 34:43:53 and third in his age category – well done Billy!
The Quaker ladies were also out in force with Julie Whinn finishing as 1st lady with an age adjusted time of 40:21:31 gaining 28 points, congratulations on your PB Julie! Sandra Martin was the second lady home in an age adjusted time of 43:02:57, finishing 3rd in her age category, congratulations on your PB Sandra and Julie Russell was the third lady home in an age adjusted time of 43:54:33.
We also saw lots of Quakers celebrating PB’s on this flat fast course….. It was a great sight, seeing so many black and white vests out at this race.
Amazing effort from all runners, well done to all the amazing Quakers who took part! Hope you all enjoyed your fish and chips and lemon tops
