Saturday 5th May – Up the Odda 10k

Report from Joanna Hobson

Following a change of route for 2018,  Over the Odda became Up the Odda (twice!).

A fabulous, well organised, very local trail race starting from Hawksworth and going over towards Menston and back. Two laps of undulating farm land, trail paths, woods and up the Odda made for quite a challenging race in the heat of the sun.

A good contingent from Otley AC made the short trip to Hawksworth, with Graham Lake and Jackie Ackroyd winning their age categories and Graham finishing 7th overall. There was also a 2 person relay option available for those only fancying up the Odda once!

The first male winner was Tom Midgely, Bingley Harriers 30:14 and first female Kate Corcoran Skyrac AC 45:55

For Otley AC

Graham Lake 44:06, Martin Stringer 52:45, Andy Webster 59:28, Mary Hampshire 59:30, Jackie Ackroyd 59:34, John Davis 63:22, Joanna Hobson 67:03
