Saturday 17th January – The ‘Nick Hogkinson’ Harewood Handicap


After the recent passing of John Cowan it was decided to run this first handicap of the year in his memory, followed by drink in the Harewood Arms.  After a minutes silence Antonio, Debra, young Nelson Charlton father Neil and Tamara set off on the just over 4 mile route on the tracks around Harewood House.    Hugh was the first to be spotted through the snow showers and came home for his first ever handicap win ahead of Chris and Gavin.  Rogan recorded the fastest time of the day a few seconds quicker than Jeremy.

Thanks to Caron, Tom and Scott for helping out with the course marking, not a day for the flour!  and for Jack on the stop watch  Also the supporters who turned out but didn’t race on a day where our thoughts were with Laura and John’s family.

    Congratulations to Hugh P. for the victory achieved with a strong performance in Harewood. Well done to all the club’s members who ran this ‘Nick H .’handicap race, who they came as well to pay the last respect to John , especially Gemma H. that seems to me she is back in good shape and Hannah M. that ran well with a good 42:36.

    Did the Potter boys wish to be anonymous?

    Thank you everyone for your brilliant support, both with the handicap and in general. John would have really loved the occasion (although probably not the attention!) Times like this go to show what a special club Otley AC is, when the people are as important as the running. See you all soon.
