Weekend Report

Queensbury Runners were entered into various races across the weekend. Stainland Trail Race in it’s second year, proved popular and attracted a larger,stronger field than last year. Queensbury had six runners taking part, Chris Williams was first back in 7th place (43:28), next was Pete Hughes (47:21), Mick Coe (50:59), Chris Rushworth (54:44), Jo Horan (56:53) & Graham Jowet (58:46).

On Saturday Chris Williams ran in the 15 mile Good Shepherd fell race, starting in Mytholmroyd. A much stronger field than the previous year showed as Chris finished 5 minutes quicker than last time around and 17 places lower in 22nd. Misty conditions on the moors didn’t help and a missed turning on London Road cost some time and effort! A great route though taking in Stoodley Pike twice from different climbs.
