Training sessions are done until September 7th. Enjoy your summer off from the regular stuff but that’s no reason to stop running! Let us know if you do any races and it will go on the website (whenever wifi is available 😐 )
Report from Hugh Pearson: In the Junior Wasburn Valley Relays, Otley A.C. Juniors took home the trophy for the first time. 15 teams of four battled their way around the 1.1 mile course with some strong performances all round. After a fast leg 1 by Holly Davey (8 minutes 12 seconds) Otley were in the lead, closely followed by two teams from Ilkley with an Abbey Runners team in fourth place. Second leg runner 8 year old Aston Brogden finished…
On Tuesday evening Jenson, Aston and Holly travelled to Methley to take part in the Jane Tomlinson Canal Fun Run hosted by Rothwell Harriers. The race was 1.5 miles and was open to all ages.The course saw the juniors running along the side of the canal and over 2 bridges to make a loop. There was a huge amount of Junior Rothwell Harriers but our Otley trio didn’t let this worry them and they all ran really well. 124 runners finished…

Jenson and Aston ran in the 1 mile race. Jenson came 4th but no results yet Holly ran in the 2 mile race but again no results yet although she was second girl. Results hopefully available here soon. The Otley Trio were delighted to meet Jonny Brownlee who started the senior race. Sadly he has a stress fracture so is taking time out of training to recover.
Jenson and Aston braved the BOFRA Murder Mile race and did really well. The race involved Seniors and Juniors running together. The uphill mile race is a tough race, but a great race to be part of. There are no results available yet but the race was won by the very talented Tom Adams who cruised to the finish in style!
Monday 13th July will be the last athletics session of this school year, so it’s time for our Olympics. Get your competitive head on!
Friday 17th July is the Washburn Valley Relay hosted by US!!! Let Hugh know if you want to be in a team. 7pm start.
