Wednesday 12 July – Golden Acre Relays

Falcons, owls, eagles, swifts and tits; an ornithologist’s delight, but more importantly the names of the Otley AC teams at the Golden Acre Relays.

For the uninitiated, the relays are put on by Abbey Runners and involve a twisting three-mile lap of Golden Acre Park, between Bramhope and Adel.

Because there was a limit of 150 teams, Otley Tits were unable to register but were allowed to run unofficially; although the results showed that 154 teams had taken part.

In 36th place Otley Falcons: Rogan Ashton 17:06, Stephen Boddy 17:40, Christian Hosker 19:16 – total 54:02.

84th Otley Owls: Rachel 20:23, Caron Ralph 21:23, Liz Fawcett 22:10 – total 63:56.

126th: Otley Eagles: Richard Hamer 22:56, Joanna Hobson 24:15,Laura Hind 23:50 – total 71:01.

142nd: Otley Swifts: Madeleine Delucchi 26:24, Anna Murtough 25:23, Debra Brown 26:52 – total 78:39.

Unplaced (see above) Otley Tits: Dominic Egan 23:04, Rob Fearnley 23:39, Andy Webster 20:31 – total 67:14.

The winners were Chapel Mews AC of Danny Lauter 13:59, Mike Hayle 14:35, Matt Grieve 14:01 – total 42:35.

  1. The Golden Acre is one relay that for one reason or another I have never got round to do it , although in the past I have done several races on the same route. Richard H. is coming back in good shape with a good 22.56 , also Joanna H. ran a strong leg in 24.15 and Caron R. achieved a super 2 leg in 21.33. Well done to all .
