Sunday 20th September – Vale of York Half Marathon

Report from Mark Hall:

The Vale of York half marathon incorporated the Yorksire veterans half marathon championships. Jamil won the V35 title, Mark Hall V55 title not sure about other OAC runners as the Yorkshire vet results have still to be worked out.
Good to see so many OAC runners, a big turnout with some good times and PBs. Well done to Jamil and especially Zack for their fine runs.

Report from Jamil Parapia: The Vale of York Half Marathon was well attended by Otley AC runners and spectators alike. The course is pretty flat and reminded me of the Selby Half Marathon I did in 2006 with Julian Mawson. The conditions for running were excellent as they often are at this time of the year. Well done to all runners who finished. PBs for Zack Whitehead, Sara Elliott and Ann Yeadon and it was Nicky’s first half – not sure about the others!

A half marathon is quite a long way (apparently it is half the distance of a marathon) so everyone should be proud of themselves. Results below or at
