Report from Sean O’Halloran:
Road races are like busses for me, nothing for ages and then two in quick succession.
This time I travelled to Thirsk to take part in the Thirsk 10 mile road race, billed as being flat and fast and doubling up as a Yorkshire Vets race.
There was a tremendous Team turnout from Otley with 18 of us on the start line and race conditions were near perfect, sunny with a nip in the air.
I was not sure how the race would go for me having done a half marathon the weekend before but a was hopeful for a PB.
I set off nice and steady and all the way round I tried to catch David the gap closed but never quite managed it. I was pleased to cross the finish line in 01:34:06 and obtain a new PB of just over 9 minutes, I am well chuffed and actually ran better than the week before.
A massive well done to all it was pleasing to see a Team on the start line ! and well done to Emma in completing her first 10 mile race and her longest race to date.
Otley got 3rd team prize! Scott and Mark 1st in their age categories while Joanna (with a new PB of over 13mins) & Philip got 2nd vets trophies for their age categories.
