  1. Well done all ! Good times here. Thought it was a bit light on runners on the Chevin this morning. Ran from one end to the other, and saw no club folk.

  2. Ditto comments above, well done all, it looks like this one will prove to be a good local alternative to the Great North Run. Mark, I’ll wait till after the Dream mile to update the club records…

  3. Compliments to Frank B. for the 3rd place with a super 1:12 that is a performance indeed .Compliments as well to Mark H. for his beautiful run and for the new club record. Well done to all the club’s members who ran this York race ,especially Tom P. with PB ,done running strongly. Also Reid H. did well with an incredible 1:52 and Lisa M. ran really well on the day.

  4. Scorching perormances! 1.12 is great as is 1.14. under 1.16 at V50 is Class and I expect the PB makes amends for Tom’s Wetherby disappointment ( I did say there is always another race!). Well done to all finishers as although ‘Half’ sounds like something less than whole : it is a very long race!

  5. Without naming individuals, it’s nother great show in numbers and in top quality times for OAC members. There is not too many clubs in the region with the same quantity and quality!

  6. Does anyone know how many team prizes the club has won this year? Did the men win Leeds half as well? Very impressive.

  7. I received a mail informing OAC that we have also won the team prize Frank, Scott, Mark.
    Odd decision as Frank did not receive the individual prize for 3rd place but counted for the team…..
    Good result.
