Report from the Hon. Handicapper:
There was a select group representing Otley AC at the final race of this year’s West Yorkshire Cross Country league at a challenging course next to Cliffe Castle. After last year’s mudfest, this year it was a much drier affair, with underfoot conditions on the soft side and only a little bit of mud.
Caron had a solid run to finish 59th, 27:00 in the senior women’s race won by Katie Walshaw, Holmfirth in 20:19. I was reasonably happy with 69th, 31:11 in the men’s race. Highlight of the day was the spirit shown by a couple of 65+ year olds in Antonio’s sprint to the line with his rival from Denbydale Striders’, Peter Andrews.
