Monday 14th of November-A special guest!

What an exciting evening! After a few conversations, emails and texts we managed to get Jonny Brownlee down to an Otley Juniors training session. The Juniors were really excited and so were the Coaches and Parents! Jonny watched to begin with and then helped Russ and Andy with some coaching. Jonny made them work really hard and they loved it! We asked Jonny to join in with our relay race at the end and he rose to the challenge, much…

Leeds Abbey Dash Junior 2 K Race 6th of November

On a very wet and cold Sunday in November a small group of juniors got up early to take part in the Junior Abbey Dash. Hundreds of Juniors ran and the Otley Juniors did us really proud. Holly Davey was first home for Otley followed by Jenson Brogden who sadly ended up in the medical tent due to his bad chest and probably shouldn’t have run! Charlotte Rawston, Aston Brogden, Jess Rawstron and Charlotte Chambers came home strong and I…

Sunday 13th November – Dalby Dash

Sunday 13th November – Dalby Dash

Report from Howard: Dalby Forest in North Yorkshire is a fine venue for a testing mainly off road 10K. The trees were multi-coloured, the sun shone, the air was still and cool and all in all a great day to race alongside (or better still in front of) another 485 runners. A first, as far as I know, in that more than half the field today, were women (258 finished). A respectful start on remembrance Sunday with two minutes silence,…

Saturday 12th November – Burley Moor Race

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…

Saturday 12th November – Harriers Vs Cyclists

Saturday 12th November – Harriers Vs Cyclists

Report from Tom Lynch: Harriers vs Cyclists is an unusual local race so had been in my calendar for a while, however it also fell on the same day as Burley Moor race, which is now my local race, and which I also fancied I had a better chance of doing well at. I toyed with the idea of doing both, and after deciding I was feeling OK after Burley Moor I headed down to Bingley to enter the race….
