The Helen Windsor 10k was well attended by Queensbury, a tough 10k run with quite a few small but draining climbs. Darren Midgely narrowly missed a top 10 spot, Peter Hughes claimed another top spot in the V55 category, Carl Heron on his way back to full fitness put in a good run, Phil Robinson was next with Richard Brook chasing just behind, a small stretch of downhill would surely have seen him catch him and Steve Wilby completed the team.

Some more good results from the last few days for Queensbury Runners.
Last Thursday was the Bronte 5 in Haworth, 5 members took part on a sunny evening. Chris Williams was first back in 5th place after a hard fought finish in a time of 28:53. Darren wasn’t far behind, bettering his time from the previous year in 30:41 and 13th place in a high quality field of runners, Peter Hughes was next in 1st v55 31:25, Ben Clare followed in 33:20, perhaps suffering after a very fast start as the huge beef sandwich he’d gulped down in the car en route caught up with him! Mick was next, just two places behind in 33:46 and Steve Wilby completed the team finishing 43:43. Full Results: http://kcac.co.uk/2013/06/full-bronte-results-2/#more-13408
