Yorkshire Vets West Vale

It could have been the holidays, the world cup or just the challenging course that led to a low attendance at the 5th vets race of the season. Only 139 runners this time and only 14 from Kirkstall + Eric but we still had enough vet ladies and men to score points for the club. Thanks to all those who turned out to represent the club.

Congratulations to:

Emma Lavelle-Wood for winning 3rd FV40
Jon Potts for winning 2nd MV60
Chris Glover for winning 2nd MV50 (woohoo!)
Catherine Barrett for winning a spot prize!

Danefield Relay

We had a record 13 teams (38 runners) at the 3 leg relay on the evening of 01 July. Thanks to Steve Webb for running two legs.

Thanks to Marion for organising the teams. A great job and everyone turned up.

Our teams put in allot of effort around the challenging route and many stayed on to cheer in their fellow harriers to the end.

The ladies Kirkstall A team (Jen, Shami, Emma B) were the second ladies team on the night. An excellent performance. The mens A team (Chris G, Rob P, Alan) came in a creditable 9th.

Full results will be posted here soon.
