Saturday 23rd November – The ‘Colin Best’ Calverley Handicap

A sunny and frosty morning greeted the runners at the canal side start near the Railway Inn.

John won his first handicap finishing a clear winner ahead of Andy Webster. Steve Robinson recorded the fastest time of the day.

Dominic now needs a big turn out at the traditional Christmas ‘Ken Dixon’ Handicap at Timble to stand any chance of over turning this lead, but Ursula is undoubtedly the bookies favourite to take the title.

  1. It was a good morning at the Colin Best’s race, I liked it, also if I was last to finish, every club’s members ran really well, especially Caron who is coming back to shape with a convincing run, and Gemma who passed me double speed, well done to Colin and to all of us as well, because it was a splendid place to be.

  2. Awww cheers Caron & Antonio! Glad I made it (just!!) & didn’t get lost on way round either! 😀 well done everyone it wasn’t the easiest of terrain mixture of grass/road/woodland/cobbles/puddles etc!! I thoroughly enjoyed it! 🙂

  3. Well run all you great “Black and Whites” a great handicap series, great end to the Handicap season finally coming up.
    brilliant!
