Sunday 25th September – Horsforth 10km

otleyac_horsforth10kmsep11Report from OAC’s Karen Best:

It was good to see a few familiar faces and OAC vests on a rather damp morning although the weather improved as we started and almost reached perfect conditions at one point!

It was a long uphill from the start up Woodlands Drive to the A65 at Rawdon and then a good gradual downhill to the canal where a period of just “hanging in there” occurred until we reached Harrogate Road at Apperely Bridge and back on the home straight. Short and sharp and a great local 10km.

The race was won by Quentin Lewis (Baildon) in 34.28 and the first lady in 24th position was Gemma Smith (Kirkstall Harriers) in 39.00.

For OAC, new second-claim member Leon Ricketts finished eleventh in 37:55 followed by Lloyd Best (32nd) 40:09, Karen Best (43rd overall and third lady) 41:03, new second-claim member Karen Potter (61st) 42:38, Tom Marsh (50th) 41:29, second-claim member Richard Clarke (65th) 42:50, Matt Podd (85th) 44:03, Tom Hannah (192nd) 49:38, Reid Haddow (201st) 50:11 and Liz Walker (387th) 62:34.
