Sunday 20th December – The 27th Ken Dixon Christmas Handicap


The first good weather day in weeks lead to a packed car park and paths round Swinsty.  New members Claire and Mike Hastings ran well on this hard 5 miler to come first and second.  Gemma followed shortly after to take third,  just missing out on third in the handicap title by just 2 points.

With a strong finish in 9th Tom Lynch secured the 2015 handicap title, consistently improving all year.  Well done Tom.  Dominic Egan just pipped Chris Tomlinson for second, finishing 6th on the day.  See the full table here and details of all the previous handicaps here.

ps. Hugh & Jackie set off 22 seconds behind schedule, so have moved up some places in the final results, thankfully this made no difference in final table.

Roll on 2016, it all starts again at Harewood on Sat. January 16th,  12 free ‘races’ taken as seriously as you like, even if it’s only to have a run around on different routes to your normal ones from Otley.

    Congratulations to Claire H. for winning the Ken Dixon the last race of the Eric S. Championship with 50:09. Also Gemma H. ran well , when she passed me on the way down to Swinsty her stride was efficient and strong . Compliments to Andrew R. for flying around the reservoir , he did the fastest time on the day 31:24 is not bad at all . Well done to everybody .

    Thanks for comments, it’s something I enjoy doing, not knowing whose going to come back first, honest 🙂

    As Steve said top effort by Dominic doing all 12 & Antonio too who just missed Danefield & you have to back to 2010 to find another he missed!, (excluding the harrogate league races).
