Weekend Harriers

On Saturday it was the Bishop Wilton HM. Jill Buckley, Patrick Nesden, Laura Hogg and Jim Nundy took part Results will be posted here when published. We know that Laura Hogg won 3rd place female. Well done Laura!

On Sunday we had 13 (plus other who don’t appear in the results!) runners in the Leeds 10k. This flat course usually produces some PBs and this year was no exception as shown below. for full results click here

Also on Sunday we had 4 members and one old friend of the club (Catherine Elvin) running in the very scenic 13.3m Northumbrian Coastal Run. The weather was hot and sunny but that did not stop Paul Miller coming in 21st in a great time of 01:28:49. Our results are below and full results are here

Washburn Valley Relays

We entered a record 9 teams into the 3 leg relay event around the Fewston and Swinsty reservoirs on Friday evening. We had a few last-minute substitutions but none had to run two legs. Thanks to Richard and Diane Thomas for standing in and relieving the mini mountain marathoners (Andrew & Russell). We hope that Jason “fingers” Buckley is recovering well and Jill enjoyed her birthday in the hospital!

Our fast ladies team came first in the women’s open category. Congratulations to Shami, Niamh and Emma B.

Our fast mens team (Alan, Rob & Paul M) came in about 7th, so a very strong run from them also.

It is becoming traditional to have a picnic after this event so that is what we did again.

A very enjoyable evening was had by all. Thanks again to Otley AC for hosting this great race. 55 teams ran in all.

The full results will be posted here when available. For photos click here

Kirkstall Festival Balloon Race

To add to the fun of Kirkstall Festival on Sat 12 July 2014, the Harriers hosted a balloon race. The closing date has now passed and the Club email box hasn’t received any notifications of anyone finding a balloon.

They were released around 4pm at the festival and all headed off at top speed towards north Leeds so who knows where they ended up?!

The proceeds from the Kirkstall harriers Stall go to Wheatfields Hospice charity, so the value of the prize will increase our donation this year.

Than you to all those who contributed to the success of the stall on the day.

Club Championship Update after Race 11 – Eccup 10

The CC race results table for this race can be viewed here

The updated CC league table after 11 races can be viewed here

Chris Hunt took the maximum 50 points from this race. Well done to Chris. Rose George & Kevin Kelly followed up with 49 points and 48 points respectively. Rose ran so fast that none of the cameras had fast enough shutter speeds to capture her running!!

The top three in the league stay the same: Jon Potts, Hannah Lee and Peter Hey but John Hutchinson jumps into fourth place and Laura Hogg into 5th. Rose is also racing up the league table and still has only 5 races in her total of 212 points.

There are still 9 races to go, so plenty of time to build up your best 6 race scores.

The next CC race is the Knavesmire Vets race on Wednesday 06 August.
