Saturday 12th January – Eric Smith Trophy Race 1 – John Cowan Harewood Handicap

The excellent route devised back in 2003 by Nick Hodgkinson provided the start to the 25th year of the monthly handicap races that form the Eric Smith Trophy.  The now traditional January handicap was named in memory of John Cowan in 2015.

Running in his first handicap Chris had a great run to finish 3 minutes clear of Chris Taylor and Ursula.  New second claimer Matt recorded the fastest time of the day,  20 or so seconds quicker than Liam.

Congratulations as well to David Cattanach who completed his 100th club handicap almost 21 years after his first, including 6 wins.

Thanks to Caron and Sara Elliott for flouring the course and Kath Robertshaw and Richard Hamer recording at the finish.  The Wellington Inn at Darley hosts February’s race an undulating‘ 3 lap 5 miles.

  1. Congratulations to the new member Chris H. for the victory at the dear John Cowan’s race 1 of the Eric S. Trophy . Ursula M. passed me at double speed finishing in a good 39.24. Liam D. was really fast , his 27.17 is not bad at all ..I wish! Also Tom P. was powerful on the day , he crossed the finishing line in a solid 30.03 . Hannah L. is getting ready for the Rombalds Stride , her time of 43.50 is brilliant . Andrew R. slowly is coming back to shape with a robust 31.17 , and the powerhouse Ruth P. crossed the line in a splendid 35. 08 . Well done everybody , especially Phil R.
