Snake Lane 10

Ten Harriers headed over to Pocklington for the ever-popular Snake Lane 10. This is a fairly flat and fast 10-mile course, ideal as part of London Marathon training. As its name suggests, the course follows a winding route through beautiful Yorkshire countryside at the foot of the glorious Wolds. Conditions this year were sunny and unseasonably warm. First Harrier home was Neil Burton in 57:26 (2nd M45). He was followed by: Steve Raby 1:06:08 (3rd M55), Paul Beal 1:15:12, Jenny Harrison 1:15:13, Jenny Oldridge 1:17:40, Jessica Jones 1:21:51, Bev Hurst 1:23:24, Steven Allen 1:24:02, Tommy Dickson 1:30:58 and Louise Whitehouse 1:39:33.
