Sunday 20th November – Race 3 West Yorks. XC League Spenborough

Report from the Hon. Handicapper:

The recent wet spell made the going on the soft side at the course next to Spenborough’s Princess Mary track.  The senior ladies did 3 laps of a spectator friendly, ‘loopy’ course with a few hills thrown in.  Wakefield’s Charlene Thomas was an easy winner in 19:43,  Sara Elliott was first for Otley in 61st, 26:00, followed by Caron Ralph in 72nd, 27:29.

Antonio was the sole representative for Otley in the men’s 5 lap race finishing 149th, 1:12:22.  Tom Adams, Ilkley won a much closer race, breaking clear on the last lap to win in 30:51.  See full results here.

    The last time we did this cross country was around 2001 and has not changed a bit , very muddy course and nowhere to hide because it was just a big field and spectators could see you almost at any moment . Sara E. ran well to finish in 26 minutes and Caron R. had great ran and she went to cross the finish line in 27.29 leaving behind more the 30 runners .
