Sunday 17th November – West Park Leeds

Report from the Hon. Handicapper

Early confidence of a decent finish quickly evaporated as I felt a persistant ‘pain in the backside‘ after just a couple minutes  of running.  This reduced my aim to just making it to the finish without the pain getting any worse. I managed to do that so it’s a case of forgetting it and on to the next one…

The course was held round the fields just north of the Beckett Park track and was mostly firm underfoot and next to no hills to mention, so lots of fast running.   Leon passed me on the second lap and Antonio made up the numbers for Otley.

Results:  1st James Hall Wharfedale 34:38, 89th Leon Ricketts 42:41, 101st Hon. handicapper 44:26, 141st Antonio Cardinale 1:08:57.  Full results here.

PS.  Yorkshire XC Championships  – (Lightwater Valley, 04/01/14), Northern XC, (25/01/14 – Knowsley Safari Park)National (22/02/14 – Wollaton Park Nottingham).  Please Email Andrew asap if you would like to run in any of these races.

  1. Leon ran the cross country course in a strong way in 42. 41, that is really good. Also Andrew although had a bad back on the day, he had a good day running in West Park. Well done you two.
