Danefield Relay 2016

Our 9 teams had great time tackling the last hill on this 3 mile 3 leg relay on Otley Chevin. The course had been altered due to some tree felling and the last climb was made longer than before as a result. Our Kirkstall Trudgers team came in 3rd female team overall and won a prize of the some chocolate. Well done ladies!

The next relay in the summer evening relay season is this coming Wednesday at Golden Acre Park followed on Friday by he Washburn Relay (teams already pre-entered).

Club Championship Race 13 – Hyde Park Summer Mile

Now we turn to our shortest race on this years Club Championship calendar, the Hyde Park Mile. We had 10 runners participating in this “eye-balls” out race, maybe others were put off by the number 13? We saw a multitude of PB’s from some of the runners. Well done all!

Not to brag any more than I already have, I took the full 50 points. Heat 9 was the Kirkstall race, with myself, James Nundy and Kieran O’Brien. This looks to have spurted me on! “Bring it on” as they say. James Nundy claimed 49 points with Yenkanth and his upgraded handicap (when I have re-checked Run Britain) in 3rd.

Position Name H’cap Time Diff Time Points
1 Malcolm Taylor 00:07:13 13.05% 00:06:16 50
2 James Nundy 00:06:48 5.65% 00:06:25 49
3 Yekanth Venkiteela 00:07:09 4.67% 00:06:48 48

The full results, including previous races, can be found here.

No movement at the top of the table, with Chris Hudson continuing his lead. Alyson “Mother” Glover leaps up to 3rd though! Topsy turvy year this is turning out to be. Look out for Yekanth who has dropped 3 points from 4 races, can he complete 6 + 4 parkruns by the end of the year to take the crown? We shall see! The full table can be found here.

6 races left, good luck to those doing Eccup 10 tomorrow! Full calendar including dates and entry links can be found here.

Any questions, please direct them through to me, Malcolm Taylor on facebook or malcolmtaylor789@hotmail.com.

 

Good running folks!
