PECO Race 3 of 5 – Middleton Park

It was another large field of 619 runners at the PECO XC race but 54 of them were Kirkstall Harriers!! 25 ladies and 29 men. Another record attendance for the club. Thanks to all those who ran. You all make a difference to the team results.

The next great piece of news is that the ladies team came first and are now at the top of the premiere league. Well done ladies and congratulations to Emma Ballantyne on her first place in the ladies race.

The mens team did better than in the last race and finished 6th which puts them in joint 7th with HPH and STAC in the premiere league. It will be a close run thing for the relegation place.
