    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.

    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!
