Saturday 28th January – Northern Cross-Country Championships

The Northern Cross-Country Championships at Pontefract.   Preview in the Yorkshire Post.

Results are available now from northernathletics.  & it seems the honorary handicapper ran with Ian’s chip timer, I’m sure I took the right one??  & the new club flag had it’s first outing.

Steve Vernon, Stockport Harriers took his 4th Northern XC title  in 39:52 in a closely fought race ahead of James Wilkinson, Leeds City & his team mate Patrick Martin in 39:57 & 39:59 respectively.

Just two Otley runners finished with Andrew Robertshaw finishing 167th, 47:37 & Tom Hannah 648th 1:05:42, & due to recent illnesses both Racheal Bamford & Richard Hamer had to pull out after starting their respective races.

The high quality of the races can be seen here on the athleticos www
