Yorkshire Veterans Athletic Association (YVAA) results

West Vale (21st July) and Knavesmire (5th August) Results


Congratulations to those who have competed in one or both of the last two YVAA races. Great running from Stacey Cleal with identical times over the tricky and hilly West Vale course and the flat tarmac and tracks of the Knavesmire course. A fine 2nd and 4th place in her age group respectively. Mick Coe had a great run at West Vale on the kind of course he thrives on. He travelled to Knavesmire with a sore knee and decided to pull out just after the start. Carl, Andy and Graham ran both races. Graham was placed 4th in his age group in both races and just outside the prizes. Chris Rushworth was unlucky too. In the Knavesmire race a marshal went AWOL and he took a wrong turn along with several others. QRC life member and former club chair, Steve Jones, joined us in York too. The final race of the Grand Prix series takes place at Spenborough on November 8th.

Airedale Athletics Summer Challenge

Making it look easy
Making it look easy

Lee Hipwell and Anna Smith ventured to the high Peak District to compete in the Holme Moss fell race.  The weather was changeable and the route over 17 miles with at least four enormous climbs including the precipitous descent from Bareholme Moss to Crowden Brook and the scramble up Laddow Rocks the other side.  The terrain varied between deep bogs, grassland, peat and the familiar flags of the Pennine Way.  After the last climb the race finished with a long mile of road back to the cricket club.  The winners, who recorded astounding times, were Matt Lalor of Barlick (2:44:21) and Holmfirth’s Helen Berry (2:56:57).  Lee and Anna both did well in a competitive field with Lee finishing in 4:25:47 and Anna close behind in 4:26:08.

Queensbury is third in the team league behind Baildon and Saltaire.  Mick Coe and Lee are fourth and fifth in the individual league with Graham Jowett, Matt Fielding and Anna also in the top ten.  The Pendle 3 Peaks (22 August) and the Tour of Norland Moor (30 August) are both coming up later this month, and training for September’s Yorkshireman is in full swing.  For links to the websites please check the Fixtures tab on the points file here.

Saltaire Shaker



The 4th Saltaire Shaker took place on Sunday 26th July. There was a fantastic turnout from the club for the 15km race, mainly along the Leeds-Liverpool canal towpath but with a couple of detours along wooded paths.


Leading the team home was Matt Thornton in 1.09:34 (34th), followed by Neil Windle in 1.13:03 (53rd), Ben Charlesworth in 1.16:53 (77th), Glenn Thornton in 1.24:41 (114th), Daniel Moore in 1.31:53 (148th), Sharon Loughran in 1.36:24 (173rd), Dianne Simpson in 1.37:28 (175th) and Andy Smith in 1.39:32 (182nd). Mary Saunders, who has been training with the club, was 147th in 1.30:47. Well done to everyone for some great performances.


The race was won by Rob James in 54:48 who finished just ahead of some of Otley AC’s best runners. He is listed as unattached but he’s a class athlete who has competed internationally at the 110 metre hurdles in the past. The first female runner was Jennie Guard (Leeds City AC) who was 14th overall in 1.04:09.
