17th of July Burton Leonard 3K Fun Run

On Sunday the 17th of July Jenson Brogden and Aston Brogden ran the 3K Burton Leonard Fun Run. The course was a tough multi-terrain route which started in the village before going through the local nature reserve and farmers fields. It was a really hot day and there wasn’t much shade on course. Both boys ran well with Jenson Brogden claiming 3rd overall and Aston Brogden going home strong despite a fall in 14th. The boys recognised a few  Ripon junior runners from the Melmerby race back in May. A great race in a lovely little village.

( The race wasn’t timed)

Happy Birthday Jenson!

On Saturday Jenson turned 12 so what does this running mad boy do? Race! Jenson was joined by Aston, Holly and Charlotte.

5th of July Jane Tomlinson Canal Race Methley

On a lovely evening in July, Jenson Brogden, Aston Brogden and Holly Davey took part in the 1.5 mile Canal race in Methley. All three Juniors ran this race last year so were keen to be back to look for a PB. This race is organised by Rothwell Harriers so there was a sea of bright yellow surrounding The Otley 3! The Rothwell crew made a few comments on the start line to try intimidate our gang but as expected Jenson, Aston and Holly remained professional and got into their zones.

Full Results-

Jenson Brogden 5th- 8.27.6

Holly Davey        7th   8.45.5

Aston Brogden   17th  9.39.5

28th of June Hyde Park Summer Half mile

Jenson Brogden and Holly Davey took part in this Half mile race in Leeds. The race takes place in the park where the Woodhouse Moor Parkrun takes place. The start line was narrow giving the Juniors very little space and resulted in a brutal start where Jenson was elbowed in the face by a fellow runner! Jenson battled on despite being pushed back and finished 4th with Holly just behind him in 5th.

Results to follow.

Saturday 18th June: York Summer league

Some great results from our juniors – Report from James Rawstron:

Charlotte and Amber went to the York Summer League meeting yesterday.

Long Jump Charlotte 2.85m 10th (of 16)
Amber 3.11m joint 6th (of 16) 1 League Point

Obviously both PBs as they’ve never competed in it before – they knew where they’d gone a bit wrong so did a few more practice ones later and I’m sure you can help them both to do more like 3.70/3.80m

600m Charlotte 2:05.4 2nd (of 16 all in one race) 5 League Points
Amber 2:21.2 13th (of 16)

Charlotte less than 1 second outside her PB ran a really good race, Amber first time she’s run on a track and also that distance so respectable time.

75m Charlotte 12.4 secs 12th (of 22 across 4 heats)
Amber 11.6 secs 3rd (of 22) 4 League Points

Charlotte new PB ran a solid one, Amber first time running that distance with a very fast PB……

All in all not a bad day – more experience for them, some PBs and a few league points in the bag.
