Sunday 2nd September – Wetherby 10k

Report from El Pres

Myself, Sara Elliott and Ann Yeadon drove over to Wetherby Racecourse to take part in the Wetherby 10k. As we set from Otley we saw the temperature gauge gradually rise from 21 degrees to 28 degrees on reaching Wetherby! At the racecourse we met up with Reebs Keinhorst, Amie Jordan, Hannah Place and Tash Whittaker. Whilst waiting on the start line with Reebs & Amie I saw Lee Gumbrell rushing to the back of queue of starters. On the descent from the race course to the road Lee rushed passed us at considerable speed. After about 3k Reebs passed me, followed by Amie just before the halfway point. At the drinks station on half way we passed Ann who was taking a well earned drink. Along the cycle track alongside the Wetherby bypass I started to catch Amie finally passing her just before the 8k point who was tiring in the heat. I couldn’t quite catch Reebs who ran superbly. My target was 55 mins and managed to finish with a chip time of 54:41.

The race was won by Callum Elson from Roundhay Runners in 33:35. 1st female was Sharon Barlow from Harrogate Harriers in 39:26.


For Otley, finishers were:

Lee Gumbrell 46:54, Sara Elliott 47:43 (3rd V45), Rebecca Keinhorst 54:20, Andrew Rayner 54:41, Amie Jordan 55:20, Ann Yeadon 56:48, Hannah Place 1:01:41Vicki Drake 1:07:34, Natasha Whittaker 1:13:50

One thought on “Sunday 2nd September – Wetherby 10k

  1. The Wetherby 10k is a race that for one reason or another I never came round to run this flat one . Our President Billy R. had an excellent performance in 54.41 hitting the target to finish under the 55 minutes mark . Another great race by Sara E. her 47.43 is a fast one and as well considering the 28 degrees on the course is not bad at all . Also Natasha W. ran well this nice 10k in a good stride . Well done everyone .
