Sunday 9th February – La Tramassel 10k Snow Trail – Hautacam

Sunday 9th February – Liversedge Half-Marathon

Report from Gemma: With barely two-weeks’ notice and very little training I stepped in to do the Liversedge Half-Marathon and to run on behalf of all the Otley AC injured ladies.

Sunday 2nd February – Yorks. Vets Grand Prix Series – Pudsey

Shane Ewen reports: Three “old men” from Otley – Liam Dunne, Robin Outtersides, and myself – ran for the black & whites in the first race of the West Yorkshire Vets Grand Prix series for 2014.   To say it was a muddy course would be putting it mildly.
