Club Championships Race 8 – John Carr 5k

Yes, you read right, we have had Race 9, so why are we going back to Race 8? That’s because John Carr is special – everyone had 3 chances over 3 weeks to get the magical 50 points!

22 Harriers completed the PB friendly, chip timed 5k course at least once; 8 people taking maximum opportunity (and a bottle of Saltaire Golden Ale) and doing all 3. Well done to everyone that took part.

Yekanth turned up for the last race & took the full 50 points, how’s that for efficiency? Jill Hudson took over 2 minutes off her handicap and over 4 minutes off her PB. I claimed 3rd thanks to my first sub 25 minute and sub 24 minute run ever! Full Club Championship results are here (see Race 8).

Neil Marshall extends his lead in the Club Championship overall, but now he’s done his 6 races, where can he improve?! Samantha (not biased at all) is in 2nd and seems up for the challenge. Adam Nodwell makes up the top 3 thanks to his sub 20 minute 5k! The up to date Club Championship table is here.

There are still 9 races left in the Club Championship series, next up is Ilkley Trail race on the 30th May (BH weekend), entries still open for anyone looking to add to their points tally and support Leeds’ local clubs. The full race calendar with links to entries can be found here.

As always, any questions please contact Malcolm Taylor either on Facebook or malcolmtaylor789@hotmail.com. Please let me know if you complete a Marathon (50 points replacing your lowest counting score) and I’ve missed you off (not intentionally).

 

 

John Carr 5k Race 3 (Club Champs)

Well done again to our 15 members who ran the 3rd race is the series and also to those who have run in all three!

Again we had another hail of new PBs. Some came very close to another PB but just missed out.

Malcolm will be updating the CC tables and posting on here very soon.

Calderdale Way Relay 2016

We entered one team of 12 runners to take part in this years Calderdale Way Relay on Sunday. The relay is made up of 6 legs ranging in length from 4.8 miles to over 10 miles. Each of the legs has to be completed by a pair of runners. All of the legs are tough and hilly. We finished 92nd out of 101 teams. Thanks to all those who represented the club, those who came out to support and the few who were reserves. Also a big thank you to Laura Davis for doing the organising of the team entry. The next event of this type is the Bradford Millennium Way Relay on 26 June. If you want to run in that, please let Jason Buckley know or email the club.

We had another good turn out of 15 members at the second in this 3 race series last Wednesday. More PBs were recorded and for some it was the second 5K PB in a week! Well done all.

This Wednesday is your last chance to record a time for the club championship in this event. Your best time counts if you do more than one.

John Carr 5k 2016 – Race 1 (Club Champs)

It was a lower than usual turn out for us last night at the first of the series of three 5k races. Only 14 Harriers battled for PBs and CC points over this flat “out & back” course in a total field of 371. There are 2 more chances to have a go over the next 2 Wednesdays. Well done to all our runners and to those who recorded a new PB.
