Saturday 16th May – Over the Odda

Report from Joanna Hobson:

Four ladies flew the Otley flag Over the Odda on Saturday morning on a tough, challenging yet surprisingly enjoyable 10k. Steep climbs & descents meant this was never going to be an easy course, but fortunately the weather was kind to us so we weren’t knee deep in mud & we all managed to stay upright! I think I can safely say we all enjoyed/endured the run, but I don’t think Ann has quite forgiven Lisa yet for persuading her to enter! The support from the marshals was fantastic and seeing Reid at the end with his own unique amazing style of black & white support made it all worthwhile – thank you Reid. All in all an excellent, local, challenging trail race.

1st male Jack Wood Ilkley Harriers 39.19
