A decent turnout yet again for the first race of this year, although there were some notable absences on the night. The weather was damp and drizzly but that didn’t dampen the mood and a good evening was had by all concerned.
Many thanks to Ilkley harriers who hosted a fantastic race and have set the benchmark for the rest of the races in the series.
The race was won by Andrew Grant from Harrogate in 27.35, who only pulled away from our Scott Harrington near the finish and first lady in 25th, 30.26, was Sharon Barlow-Hamilton from Ripon Runners. Our top 3 were Scott, 2nd in 28.00; Ed Davies, 10th in 29.04; and Simon Anderson, not to be confused with Rogan, 12th overall in 29.17.
