Airedale Athletics Off-Road Winter Challenge

Lynne Robinson on her way to a good finish at Withins Skyline

After the first race,the Withins Skyline, Queensbury are second in the team league to Baildon.  The Baildon team was particularly impressive at Withins: one of their runners was so determined to finish that she completed the last half of the course with a broken leg and their large points score could not be better deserved.  Nevertheless all three Queensbury competitors did well, with Alistair Gale and Lynne Robinson making impressive debuts for the club.

The next races are Cop Hill (1 November) and the Wadsworth Half Trog, an opportunity for Joker double points on 8 November. Please click here for full club and individual scores and the complete list of fixtures.  There’s a variety of races through the winter on trail and fell; If you do any of them your points will automatically count in both the club and individual leagues.

Many congratulations to Mick Coe, who won the individual trophy for the summer season.
