Sunday 3rd Jan: PECO XC

Report from Sean:

On Sunday I travelled over to Middleton Park , South Leeds, to run in the third race of this year’s PECO series. This was to be my fifth race in as many weeks.

The race was approx. 5 miles and run within the grounds of Middleton park, billed as cross country race but it was more like a trail race with plenty of undulating sections, mud and tree roots to navigate. It was good see the OAC Road Capitan Liam Dunne just before the start, apparently using the race to blow away some festive cobwebs.

It was also good to see the usual junior contingent who were running well…. Results not yet available.

The winner of the men’s race was Jack Smith from Wharfedale Harriers in 29.22, the ladies winner was Claire Green from Pudsey & Bramley AC in 34:14.

Liam Dunne finished in 31:42 (4th MV40) and Sean O’Halloran finished in 53:16.

Full results can be found here

Looking forward now to next weekend’s Yorkshire XC Championships at Lightwater Valley Theme Park.

One thought on “Sunday 3rd Jan: PECO XC

  1. I agree with Sean about ‘it is good to see’ the junior group running well because they are the future runners of our club. The club did this same race at Middleton park around 2004 , a lovely place to run , like you said more like trail race then a cross country with those large footpaths . Your 53:16 is a good effort Sean , not a bad result at all , also Liam D. had a super day with 31:42.
