Over 50 Hastings Runners were in action at the Beckley 10K this weekend.

On a glorious morning with the sun shining and a gentle breeze, there were some excellent times recorded. This despite the challenging, undulating nature of the route, with over 150 metres of elevation.

Darren Barzee continued his superb season by coming home in 5th place overall, posting a time of 40 minutes and 5 seconds. It was good enough for first place in the MV50 category.

Alongside Andrew Watson (41:25) and Patrick Bermingham (42:24), the club landed first place in the Men’s Team event.

The women followed suit with Debbie Humbles (47:31), Jane Coles (48:20) and Nina Lambrou (50:03) combining for the Team prize. Humbles also won first place in the FV50 category.

There were age categories wins too for Andy Lee (MV60: 43:03), Rob Dennis (FV70: 50:44), Debra Van Aalst (FV55 57:00), Susan Rae (FV60: 50:18) and Yockie Richardson (FV70: 1:09:10).

Husband and wife, Paul and Sharon both landed PB’s in the Deal 5 miler with times of 44:43 and 43:40 respectively.
