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.

Yorkshire XC Champs – Lightwater Valley – Results

We had 5 ladies and 7 men running in the tough XC at Lightwater Valley. The course was muddy to start with and got worse as the many multi-lap events churned it all up.

We also had great support from Ian Brown (also marshalling), Sam and Bethan (our first new member of 2014).

What made it interesting was that the ladies race was posted as 5k event but was nearly 7k and the mens 10.4k race was 12.1k, so there were many tired and confused legs at the end!

The ladies team came 24th out of 25 and the men came 23rd out of 26 so not bad considering the very high standard.

Many thanks to Marion for organising the race entry.
