Saturday 16th January – The John Cowan Harewood Handicap

Saturday 16th January – The John Cowan Harewood Handicap

After  months of rain the sunny forecast brought out hoards of walkers to the Harewood estate, making parking a little difficult.  A good turn out for the first handicap of the year saw Carol had a fantastic run to win her second handicap in a row,  I think I need to be a bit harder next time!  Tom Pomfrett passed nearly everyone in finishing second a minute clear of Phil in third.  Without a photo finish it proved to be…

Saturday 9th January – Yorkshire XC

Saturday 9th January – Yorkshire XC

Report from Sean O’Halloran: Saturday saw the running of the Yorkshire Championship XC Race held at Lightwater Valley Theme Park, Ripon. As you can imagine being a Championship event this race attracted the top runners from all over Yorkshire. The course was perfect for a championship race, plenty of mud, steep climbs, gradual climbs, and sections for face paced running.

Aston ran in the 1 mile race and Jenson and Holly ran in the 2 mile race. As you can imagine the course was really wet and muddy so the ‘Three Amigos’ did well to stay upright!

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…
