Report from Phil Robinson:
Good conditions for this race from Woodhouse Grove School, Apperley Bridge but quite hard course with a 2 mile climb from the start upto the A65.

For OAC, Mick Jeffrey finished 72nd (and second MV55) in 103.26 and Ralph Haughton 298th (137.19).
OAC’s talented veteran and Sports Masseur Mark Hall offers to lead a group on Tuesdays and Thursdays working on having tempo runs at a 6.30/40 pace and these would be run at a consistent pace with nobody running faster and splitting the group. The distance would be 7/8 miles.
This would be ideal for those of running at 68 min pace or less for 10 mile. If this pace is too quick then Mick Jeffrey will take another group (Tuesday only) at 7.00/15 pace equivalent to 70 – 72 min for 10 mile.
Don’t be afraid to try this type of training as tempo runs are the best way to improve your speed endurance before fine tuning your form with interval training.

Report from Karen Best:
Woke up to pouring rain and turned over… eventually coaxed myself out from under the duvet and joined a brave bunch out at Kirkstall Abbey for the Kirkstall 7. I was first lady home!
The race was won by Tim Midgley (Bingley) in 36:47.
