  1. well done liam, sorry i didnt see you up there at newcastle, legs wouldnt go at all at last night at training , regards and well done again, reid.

  2. Very well done to yourself Reid!….and all the other Otley crew who completed the GNR. Shame I didn’t know beforehand that there was so many Otley AC runners entered. Got a shout out From Otleys Tom Padget on the finishing straight. Due to traffic I didn’t hang around but next year we’ll have to meet up after.

  3. Well done guys, although after seeing Richard Clarke’s apparent time, I thought it Iooked at little slow for him. Turns out he didn’t run. Must be an impostor!
