Well done to the one and only Queensbury runner Ben Clare who completed the famous Stoop fell race starting from the quarry in Haworth all the runners are given a Santa hat to wear and lots dress up in fancy dress how they get round in some of them outfits I will never know but it was great to watch Ben had a good race finishing in 87th position out of 253 finishers in 41-05 the route starts from the quarry and climbs all the way up to the trigg point and back add all the mud and you have a very tough race.IMAG0088

A club record of 31 runners turned out for the 1st race in the West Yorkshire Cross Country League on Sunday 13th December. The first fixture at Stainland was postponed due to torrential rain in the days before and the skies opened again on the day before the Dewsbury race. The course was very muddy with some tough climbs and tricky descents. Congratulations to everyone who took part. Many runners were participating in the WYWL for the first time. The support for everyone was fantastic with many of those who had already crossed the line stayed on to cheer on the rest of the team as they rushed for the line.

 

First home for QRC was Tom Collinge in 9th. Tom comfortably in 4th place at the end of the final climb but he took a wrong turn in the woods and slipped a few places. It was still a fine run Tom! The male vets competed amongst themselves for the next QRC places. Mick Coe timed his move to perfection and just edged past Martin Firth and Peter Hughes. Jo Horan was the first female home for Queensbury coming home in 10th place. Anna Smith crossed the line soon after and Stacey Cleal came in in 23rd place.

 

The outstanding team performance on the day was the Female team (4th overall). The Male team was 6th, the Vets team 7th and the overall position at the end of the first race is 5th. There is much to look forward to at the second race in Idle on January 3rd.

 

The quality of the Queensbury veteran runners was again evident with four absolutely fantastic age-category wins (Anna Smith, Martin Firth, Peter Hughes and Graham Jowett). Jo Horan and Stacey Cleal were 3rd and 4th in their respective categories and Mick Coe was 5th in the exceptional M50 group.

 

Well done to all. A real credit to Queensbury Running Club and living proof of the great strides the club has made in the last year.

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.
