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.

Latest News

The Giants Tooth was run on New Years day, a local 3 mile fell race run from the Causeway Foot at Ogden. Queensbury had plenty of runners there with Pete Hughes back first to claim the V60 position.

The following week was the 2nd XC at Stainland. Another tough route of approx 4.5 undulating and quite technical miles. The results proved to be as difficult as the course with a record turnout and an error with the ‘lollipop’ sticks. The electronic system helped to patch up the results in the end after a lot of work from the team. We are doing very well in the competition and the Stainland race saw a record number of runners for Queensbury. We hope to continue this in the next race, see the following details provided by WYWL.

WYWL event 3 – Craven Energy Cross Country – 25th January 2015

Course: 4.7 miles, undulating, fields and woodland track. There is a bit of hardcore and some Tarmac paths to cross so unfortunately not suitable for spikes.

Venue: is UAK (formerly Greenhead school). There are showers, toilets, changing room, car park.
There will be pie and peas and hot drinks and cakes for sale after.

Postcode is BD20 6EB (or google UAK Keighley).
Course is in the park next to the school.

 

Finally, the Stanbury Splash, which actually turned into the The Stoop due to the snow, ice and all round bad conditions the race in renowned for was run on Sunday. Just two Queensbury Runners braved the conditions, all out action man Lee Hipwell ran well and finished in 49 mins 34 seconds and Ben Clare put in a great performance after taking some time out for work commitments and finished 44th in 41:53.
