Temple Newsam Peco XC 21st of November.

Jenson Brogden, Aston Brogden, Holly Davey and Kieran Green all ran the first race of the PECO XC League on Sunday at Temple Newsam. Aston ran the mile course and Jenson, Holly and Kieran ran the 2 mile. Both courses were really muddy but they all ran well and enjoyed a well earned hot chocolate in the cafe afterwards!

Junior Abbey Dash 15th of November 2015

Jenson Brogden, Aston Brogden and Holly Davey braved the wet weather to take part in the 2015 Junior Abbey Dash or should I say the ABBEY SPLASH! Not put off by the awful weather the Otley Juniors gave it their all in this 2k road race.  Jenson who was running this race for the 4th year was home first and continued his theme of beating the previous years time and even went under 7 minutes. Holly was next home and…

Sunday 29th November: Barnsley 10k

Sunday 29th November: Barnsley 10k

Report from Howard: For the last couple of weeks I have not run to let the hamstring that tightened at the Abbey Dash loosen up. I went to the Roundhay park run on Saturday and felt ok so I had a look what was going on the following day. Barnsley 10k which I am sure was described a fast flat pb course. Not sure if they have recently moved the venue but it was around Royston a few miles to…

Saturday 28th November – Weeton Handicap

Saturday 28th November – Weeton Handicap

After checking out the forecast last night the using flour markings were replaced with tape.  The rain and wind arrived a couple of hours late so other than being a little cold,  the conditions were pretty good for the penultimate handicap race of the year.  Carol took her first handicap win in nearly five years, holding off Ged Peacock by 12 seconds.  A good morning’s exercise for Carol, cycling to the start, winning the handicap & cycling back home. Tom Lynch set…

Sunday 22nd November – Peco XC Race 1

Report from Sean O’Halloran: Over the summer I decided to commit fully to the winter cross country season in an attempt to build up my strength and stamina and put myself in a strong position for 2016. I signed up to do the West Yorkshire XC with Otley, however the other major winter XC series is the PECO League which is unfortunately not supported by the club. I could have run the PECO races as a guest but I took…

Saturday 21st November – Harriers v Cyclists

Saturday 21st November – Harriers v Cyclists

Report from the Hon. Handicapper: A good turnout of Black & White vests at this unusual race for both runners and cyclists, roughly split 75% to 25% between runners and cyclists.  It starts in fields next to the Leeds Liverpool canal near the Fishermans Inn, crossing Shipley Glen and up to the summit cairn of Baildon moor.  Once on the top there’s a short loop before you retrace your tracks back to the canal. The popularity of the event delayed the start a…
