Report From Ex Pres Matt Podd
In a moment of madness I entered this, run on Bank Holiday Monday. Fairly hot morning for racing, but off we went for a tour of backroads from Ackworth, just south of Pontefract. An undulating course with one hill, and an uphill finish. The only exitement was a runner collapsing in front of me – but he had support and got up and started walking.
Won by Stewart Knowles, Wakefield Harriers in 1.17.42 and Johanna Sutcliffe, Halifax Harriers in 1.27.01. I was 130th in 1.52.33 – not my best ever run. 278 others shared the experience.
