Results for the March leg of the YVAA Virtual GP are now out. This event will see participants run a different virtual race distance each month throughout 2021. Points are awarded based on age-graded percentage scores, so all age groups can compete equally. A runner’s best nine points scores will count towards their final total for the series.
After three rounds, Sheffield Running Club continues to dominate the men’s competition. Chris Ireland (M60) sits in first, with Jed Turner (M60) third and Robert Cassy (M40) fourth. Only City of Hull’s Stephen Rennie (M65) is intruding on the podium positions to prevent an SRC clean sweep.
Sue Haslam (Scarborough) leads a trio of W65s at the top of the women’s standings, ahead of Shirley Oglesby (East Hull) and Dot Kesterton (Steel City Striders). Sue’s very impressive 34:38 5 mile time in March was worth a 96.55% age-grade.
Many thanks to Jason Newell for organising. An immense amount of work has gone into producing the results, which can be seen in full here.
If you’re taking part, your distance for April is 10 miles. Enjoy…
