Saturday 17th January – Harewood Handicap Race

Nelson Charlton took part in his first club handicap race today, and the club’s first of 2015, at Harewood. The fact that it’s a challenging 4.2 miles with a couple of nasty hills would have made for a tricky enough debut anyway, but add in the cold air, the icy puddles and fact that it snowed most of the way round, and it becomes a real test of endurance. Nelson put on a sprint finish to come in 32nd, with a time 48:52 mins, and to a hard-earned round of cheers and applause.
