Tuesday 4th July: Danefield relay

Report from Graham Lake:

A record 123 teams entered the Danefield this year making the start quite a stampede!
Otley entered 6 teams with the young-guns (ahem) of Fell Captain, Gary Johnson and new member Andy Wright coming out on top in a creditable 8th place. Liam running the fastest OAC leg of the night had closed the gap for the Codgers but was pipped on the steep climb to the finish, but still finished 2nd Vets team. Everyone seemed to enjoy it, and the post-race refreshment in the Old Cock certainly went down well.
The winning team were Ripon Mafia in 57.03
Fastest leg of the night was Jack Wood in 17.56.

  1. I am pleased that we have entered 6 teams this year , I used to like to do this relay that Julian M. used to organize , then for some reason around 10 years ago our members lost interest in it , I was the only one present at Danefield and on my way home I saw Andrew R. going to the relay to watch . Great run by Liam D. with a super 20.02 , and Caron R. as well ran strongly in 28.08 , and Shane E. is in good shape running fast in 22.05. Well done to everyone .

  2. Too much food eaten too late = stomach ache all the way round! Still a great evening though, especially the post-race orange juice.
