Saturday 10th December – Park Run Roundhay 5km

Report from OAC’s Karen Best:

Brrrr….just about sums it up!

A fantastic crisp, clear morning awaited us in Roundhay and so did the frost and ice.

Having had a few icy journeys to work this week on my bike my confidence of staying upright was pretty low…. I managed one rather stylish impression of Bambi as I watched Lloyd disappear into the distance.

Having virtually walked around each corner I was rather pleased to finish fourteenth in the time I did (22.09).

Lloyd managed to hang in for third place (19.46)!

The race was won by Elliot Cole (Leeds City) in 17.53 and the first lady in fourth position overall was Julia Leventon (Trafford A.C.) in 19.52.
