Tuesday 7th July – Harrogate League Otley Handicap

Report by the Hon. Handicapper (but not for this one!)

A big thanks to all involved in helping Otley AC host the final Harrogate League race for this year.  In particular race organiser Colin Best, Laura Hind and her catering crew for a fantastic buffet & timekeepers & recorders at the hectic finish.  There were a couple of little issues on the night, but in general everything else seemed to go pretty well and it should be noted that this was the first time we’ve hosted the league handicap since the 1990’s when there were a lot less taking part.

Stephen had a great run to have the honour of being first back for Otley finishing 6th, followed by John Davis & Jeremy in 34th & 41st respectively.

No overall league prizes this year for Otley but that didn’t detract from another enjoyable season of races,  see the full results for the handicap here.

The marshals were amazing & thank you everybody who helped for the fantastic support & encouragement around the course, it really does help! Brilliant buffet at the end organised by Laura but with massive support from very many members so really excellent club effort. Thanks :))
