Report from Billy

Races, injuries, illness and work commitments decimated the Ladies team with Becky Harpur the only runner for Otley. She ran fantastically to finish 16th in a time of 22:43. The ladies race was won by Ruby Sykes of Holmfirth in 20:34.

We had a few more men out again qualifying for points.

  1. Thornes Park was at his best for this annual cross country , the terrain was quite firm , not the usual quagmire , where a fantastic Becky H. did a super race , 22.43 is really fast . Our President Billy R. had a great afternoon in Wakefield , when he passed me at double speed , his stride was powerful , his time of 53.40 is good indeed . Also Liam D. did really well in this 5 laps course , his time of 37.18 is significant that the good form steadily is coming back . Joe T. was brilliant on the day , his 36.07 is good . Well done all .
