Saturday 4th January – Yorkshire Cross Country

Report by Andrew Robertshaw:

The rolling fields next to the Lightwater Valley amusement park hosted ‘The Ultimate‘ test for Yorkshire’s top runners.  The Hon. handicapper & Jon Greenwell lined up in the last race of the day, a 10,400 m spectator friendly twisting 5 lap route.  The underfoot conditions were best described as soft with a few muddy sections.

Both of us decided on having a steady start with the aim of picking off people as the race progressed & so it proved to be,  I was pleased to finish in 82nd (49:12) followed shortly after by Jon 97th (50:09).

Andrew Heyes of Hallamshire in 40:48 was a clear winner 44 seconds ahead of Jack Simpson, Leeds City and 3rd Marc Scott from our Harrogate League rivals Richmond, 41:51. See full results on the North of England AA site here.
