Well done all.

Thursday 8th September – 3000m Handicap and ROY Track

Thursday 8th September – 3000m Handicap and ROY Track

With a Mo Farah like sprint down the final straight Dominic took a comfortable win ahead of Tony Walker.  Young Aston just beat Steve for third across the line with a frantic sprint in the last 50m. Thanks to Caron for time keeping duties, setting of a minute or so before Antonio ending up 3rd after Handicap adjustments. Mark recorded the fastest time on the night, replicating his club V55 record (10:06), from last year’s Yorks. Veteran track championships. After a recent cold…

Sunday 4th September – Tholthorpe 10k

Report from Howard Jeffrey: Quite a few years have passed since I have done this race but I remember it being a course quite to my liking.

I have reduced the triathlon training and am slowly working back up the running schedule. I lined up in…

Sunday 4th September – Wetherby 10k

Sunday 4th September – Wetherby 10k

Report from Phil Robinson: Surprisingly, Tom and I were the only Otley runners in this popular local 10k centred on the Wetherby racecourse. It’s a well-organised event with 2.5 and 5k races earlier in the day, lots of family-type activities in the racecourse area, easy access and parking, and a fairly flat course on road and farm tracks. Results: 1 Andrew Grant Harrogate 32.42 2 Ben Pease Ripon 33.20 3 Liam O’Brien Hyde Park 33.27 285 Phil Robinson Otley 50.59…

Saturday 3rd September – Derwentwater Trail 15k

Report from Joanna Hobson: On Saturday 3rd September I took part in the Derwentwater Trails 15k challenge in Keswick (actually 16k due to alternative route) Although I did this race last year, the course had changed considerably due to Storm Desmond. Unfortunately this part of the Lakes has suffered badly and several landslides & broken bridges meant the organisers had to find an alternative route for the first 4K. And this they did by utilising the muddiest, wettest, sloppiest, hilliest…
