Club Championship Race 6 – Guiseley Gallop

We had 19 Harriers running, what can only be described as a mud bath by all accounts, of a Guiseley Gallop this year. We welcomed back some old faces and welcomed in some fresh blood too. The full results with time order are below. Niamh Jackson came 2nd in an impressive field of ladies and Jonathan and Lee made it into the top 30 overall. Slightly further down the field, John Hutchinson came first in his age category and Richard Thomas & Paul Glover made the top 10 in his. Well done all! Hopefully it’ll be easier next year!

The eagle eye amongst you might have seen I have skipped Race 5 from the CC. This is because, due to the cancellation of John Carr 5k, we have amended the race to the Even Splits 5K at the Brownlee Centre. It is a series that runs between March and November. Entries for Race 3 have now opened. Check out the KH 2018 Races for information.

Winter 5k Time Trial No.5 – 21 Feb – Results

There were 14 starters on this fairly mild night considering the weather we have endured this winter (with more to come so they say), but it was the week after the Liversedge half marathon and we have quite a few runners representing the club in the National Cross Country in London this coming weekend. There were 5 new names for this winter series, 3 of which has done them in the past, Matt Sykes-Hooban, Jo McGarey (a returning member) and Jill Camm. The 2 new additions were Anna Jaines and Jonathan Young. So along with these and a few excuses on the night, there were a number of adjustments/additions to the handicaps. There was 4 minutes and 21 seconds between the first and last finisher, but making excuses for the first and last one home, the remaining 11 runners finished within 1 minute 14 seconds. First over the line after recovering from his back injury (he must be doing his physio correctly) was Matt Sykes-Hooban with a run time of 26.31, but not his fastest for this course. 2nd over the line having made his way from the very back of the starters was Jonathan Young with a run time of 18.23, the fastest on the night and the fastest this winter. Third was Dawn Henderson gradually getting faster with a run time of 29.52, a pb for her on this course. Fastest lady on the night was Anna Jaines with a run time of 24.52. Other pb’s for this winters series were Patrick Nesden, 34.02 and Malcolm Taylor 25.39. Bringing up the rear on the night sadly was Jacquie Elmer who has not been down for a while so this may be just a one off. Another disappointment was Jill Camm who recorded a dnf due to hamstring problems, hopefully this is nothing serious and she will be back running very soon. Three other runners who “jogged” round the course or did just a part of it were Lee Hardy, (dodgy shin and doing the Harewood half M this Sunday) John Hutchinson, still recovering from serious spine nerve problem and Dave Wood, recovering from a foot injury. Many thanks too to the team of supporters, Sam Taylor, Gary Carlisle, Lucy Churm and Kelvin Horner. You will be pleased to know the next one in March is the last for this winter.
