Sunday 12th June – Bradford Millennium Way Relay


More details from fellrunner and the dedicated millenniumwayrelay website on this event (48 miles / 6,500′).

Provisional results now available  the mens team finishing 11th in 6 hrs 28 mins 44 secs,  although it could have been 5 or so mins. quicker as Liam & Tom didn’t make it to the last leg change-over in time, traffic probs. with an accident in Bingley,.., and maybe the chief handicapper & Ed. Davies running too fast, returning 2nd fastest time on the day for leg 4.  Liam & Tom made up for it by passing 3 teams en-route back to the finish in Bingley & probably the 2nd fastest (actual running time) for the last leg…….
For the first time in this event Otley finished a ladies team, with Laura & Karen coming home as 1st ladies team  at the end of the leg 1.   Sharron and Rachael ran into the finish at the Bradford & Bingley sports centre with a total time for the team of 7hrs 45 mins 36 secs,  35th overall and 6th ladies team, see leg details below & photo by Liz A.. Colin and Liz’s pics here…
