Harriers v Cyclists

The end of November saw the annual competition of Harriers v. Cyclists. We were solely represented by the one and only Ben ‘Bullet’ Clare, lovingly named to mimic the infamous Manx Missile (Mark Cavendish). Ben earned his Cavendish-esque title one summer morning whilst cycling to meet the rest of us for a weekend bike ride. As this distant speck of a cyclist approached us at a lightening speed, Chris Williams commented

By ‘eck lads, tha’s not Mark Cavendish flyin’ up t’road, is it?! Ee-by-gum fellas, tha’s Ben Clare!

Ben crossed the finish line in a decent time of 50:26, earning him position 125 out of 278 competitors. Nice one!

Age UK Abbey Dash Results

On race day I set off to watch the Abbey Dash it was blowing 50 mph with horizontal rain and I thought the race may need to be cancelled well I do live in Thornton and a number of the club that were racing live in Queensbury and are used to this kind of weather but still the conditions were terrible I arrived at the 5k point to see Martin and Diane togged up like me as if we were going to walk to the south pole and also going by some of the pictures Andy took most of the Queensbury runners were wrapped up in bin liners but unbelievably as if the weather was governed by the starting time the wind stopped and the conditions were pretty good for the 10k.

Martin Me Peter Hughes and Steve Wilby used to run this race years ago when there were about 400 runners today there was 15000 and it was great waiting to see the Queensbury colours running down the Kirkstall road again well done to all that raced you have done the club proud.

The White Rose Ultra 30 miles 1-11-15

Matt Fielding ran the White Rose Ultra at the weekend Matt says the weather was pretty damn hot by midday the toughest section of the course is one I am familiar with from competing in the Wessenden king of the hill event so I knew what to expect it just so happened to be at the 20 mile mark when most runners are hitting the wall and the hottest part of the day just to had to the pain.It took me 5hrs 47mins a fab event I would recommend this race to the club.

Well done Matt from all the club.
