IT WAS another week of great performances from Richmond's athletes with the Snake Lane 10 miler, the National Cross country at Harewood in Leeds, Pie and Peas trail race, Ormesby Hall trail race and the Tees Barrage trail race.
Rob Scott showed this week that he has come through the winter season of cross countries in great shape to hit the roads in the summer season with an impressive 3rd place at the very competitive Snake Lane 10, held at Pocklington. He had to dig deep to produce a sprint finish to just pip another athlete at the line in big new pb (53:21, pb). Not to be outdone Elly Robertson also produced a new pb in her race in 591st (88:12, pb).
