Saturday 12th November – Burley Moor Race

Report from Lisa Maughan:

After having to sit this “home” run out last year due to my aching joints I was determined to do it this year, come rain or shine… and rain it did. conditions this year were challenging underfoot and I was glad to remain on two feet throughout. Only a handful of Otley ACers were out today, perhaps due to the clash with harriers vs cyclists. Still, a good race as usual, and well done to my husband on his first race for Otley A.C. (managed to beat him though thankfully)

Report from Matt Podd:

A few of us met up at Scalebor pavilion to run The Burley Moor Race again. About 6 miles and nearly a fell race with some good running over the east of Ilkley moor. Warmer weather, and the rain stopped by the start so off we all went for a splash through peat soup. Lovely trot out. Phil Livermore won in 47.23 with Jemima Elgood first woman in 51.48. Full results here and photos from Woodentops here, set 1, set 2.

  1. Sounds gruesome but looks great, with super action photos on nice clean tarmac. No sign of a peat bog but I guess you had to be there. Always a pleasure to see Antonio in the results.

  2. No hyperthermia this year? Well done Lisa and Carl for his first race-1of many we hope! Tom “curly haired fell goat” Lynch doing the double with great runs in both Burley Moor and Harriers v Cyclists-when he had time to eat, I don’t know and all the other B & W who turned up for a bog fest, enjoyable local race

  3. Welcome to Carl M. on his first race for Otley AC. his time 1.16 is good considering as well the precarious underfoot on the moors , also Lisa M. ran strongly with a good result 1.15 not bad at all . Former President Matt P. had a super fell race in 1.06 and Serena B. ran a fabulous Burley Race in 1.08 that is a powerful performance . Thank you to Jack and Kath R. for the photo and to Howard as well for the nice comment . Well done everybody .
