Fire 5 Birkenshaw 13th August 2017

The sun certainly had his hat on for this little 5 miler over in Birkenshaw, A race run over the ‘classic’ 5 mile distance. The race tackles a circular, undulating route which starts and finishes at the West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service Headquarters in Birkenshaw.

268 runners took part, of which most were club runners from as far away as Knaresborough and Rotherham, with Jonathon Johnson of Rotherham taking the honours in an incredible 27:01.

7 QRCers took part with all of us having superb races, against other club runners but also against each other, with 3 of us swapping positions regularly in a bid to beat each other. 

Well done guys great racing by all.
