Sunday 14th February: PECO XC

Report from Sean:

On Sunday I travelled just up the road to Roundhay Park to run in the fifth and final race of this winters PECO XC series which also meant I had managed to run all 5 races.
The race was approx. 5 miles and run within the grounds of Roundhay Park, including the notorious hill 60. For once this was a single lap race, with clear blue skies and sunshine and with limited mud (very un-cross country like). However having sustained an Achilles injury at Wednesdays conditioning session I was using this race as a test and was not running at race pace. Pleased to report the Achilles was fine and my half marathon training will resume this week.
It was also good to see the usual junior contingent, In their age groups: In the one mile race Aston Brogden finished 12th (B4-6) in 09;19. In the two mile Bjoern Koerdt finished 7th (B7-9) in 13:51, Jenson Brogden finished 9th (B7-9) in 14:10, Holly Davey finished 4th (G7-9) in 15:21 and Kieran Green finished 21nd (B7-9) in 20:22.
The winner of the men’s race was Jamie Parkinson from Pudsey & Bramley AC in 27:48 and the ladies winner was Bronwen Jenkinson from Leeds University CC in 33:02
Sean O’Halloran finished in 52:37

  1. Well done Sean. if you want mud get yourself up on the Chevin or on Ilkley Moor, I can confirm that there is still plenty about.

  2. On this one I agree with Hannah L. about the Chevin and the moors that are very muddy indeed . The usual junior contingent are running really well with consistency ,especially Holly D . with 15:21 a nice result that gave her the 4th position .Also Sean O. ran well with 52:37 that is a good performance . Well done everybody .
