Mick Coe represented the club strongly at the Austick Amble, covering the 8 mile 1,200ft course in 1:00:47 to take 41st place. Then on a windy day he took 3 minutes off his 2014 time at the Wharfedale Half Marathon, finishing in 1:49:47.  Matt Fielding also made the trip to the Dales and completed the same tough route in a time of 2:08:18. These are impressive results on very varied and demanding routes. Well done everyone.

Mick and Graham are placed fourth and fifth in the individual league.  The next events are Reservoir Bogs (Hebden Bridge, 20 June), the Baildon Canter (11 July) and Widdop (15 July).  Full points and the fixture list are here.
