Wednesday 23rd June – Otley 10

A socially distanced, phased start, race for this year after missing out last year.  A big thanks to race director Ian Broadbent, all the club members, Otley Cricket Club, Yorkshire Runner and Nice-work  on the chip timing who made it a successful evening.

Thomas Hodgson ran a quick 54.38 to finish ahead of Owen Beilby, 56:12 and John Young, 57.22.  Sarah Flaherty, 1:05:54, was the first lady home ahead of Sally Armitage, 1:06:32 and Rachel Carter, 1:08:32.

It’s also worth noting that Sarah’s winning time beat Andrea Dennison’s v45 course record by 30 seconds, (although this year’s race has been reported to be slightly short because of a road junction redesign since the course was measured).

Because of the extra marshalling duties this year, just 2 Otley AC members ran, both having a great races, coming back first in their categories,  see the list of category winners below the photos, (courtesy of Steve Davey),  Hayley was also first local lady.  Andy McCue was the first local in 13th.
