An Otley / Leeds City team of Zack Whitehead (18:06), Nathan Dunn (20:51) and Scott Harrington (17:27) broke the race record by five seconds finishing in 56:24.
Harrogate’s Barry McGuire came back first on Leg 1 in 17:07, another record broken on the night. Andy Grant extended the lead to just over a minute, at the end of Leg 2 with a the fast leg 2 time of 20:41. Scott chased down John Young on the final leg round Swinsty, crossing the finish with a 11 second win.
The mixed team race was won by the Bingley JII team finishing in 10th overall, with Jo Buckley (19:59), Ian Fisher (21:30) and Ian Ferguson (21:46). 2nd was the Baildon Kasrobard team just less than a minute behind with Jennie Guard (19:11), Lee Kaznowski (24:06) and Gareth Holme (20:56).
Unfortunately we incorrectly gave the Pudsey Ladies team the women’s prize, as we missed Harriers Speed Queens from Knavesmire living up to their name finishing in a time, 1:07:49, that broke the women’s record with the team of Sarah Attwood (20:05), Emily Baines (26:15) and Lucy Pinder (21:31).
Thanks to everyone who helped out on the evening, and thankfully the drizzle held off pretty much for the post race BBQ’s.
