Endure24 2022

Last year's Endure 24 event at Bramham Park took place just as all restrictions for Covid19 had finished.
As a result we only had one team of eight runners in the event (and seven solo runners).
This year we returned to pre-pandemic levels of interest and had 5 teams entered, one solo runner and other club members who were part of one of the sponsor's (Heineken) teams.

However most of the teams were affected by illness, injury or team members not being able to run for personal reasons, so two of our teams finished up being a team of five and a team of six.
A big thank you goes to Paul Storr (who is an ex Harrier) who was supporting Andy Mason's solo effort, but offered to help out and run a few laps for one of the teams.

The weather was perfect for running. We didnt have the blazing heat from 2019, nor the thunderstorms from 2021. In fact the only bad weather was on the Friday when we were setting up the camp!

One talking point from this years event was one of our team names. Jo Millican's team name was 'Fanny Lane Flyers'. Clearly inspired by the popular street name where we do a lot of hill training. However, the compere at the event refused to announce the team name when a team member passed through the finish barrier.
Jo raised this with him and he stated that it was a family event and he didn't want to say it! Anyway, when Sue Tindall finished the final lap, the compere stated he had checked it out and it is a street name in Tadcaster and agreed to announce the team name!

There were some great performances from club members, with some team members doing 5, 6, 7 or 8 laps over the 24 hours and some excellent finish positions for the teams which is great considering we went there to have an enjoyable social weekend with a bit of running thrown in!.

Thanks to everyone who was involved in making the event a success for the club.

We will be letting your legs recover a bit before we see who is interested for next year.
