Well done to everyone who ran at the WYWL in Temple Newsam. The Vets team is currently in second place overall. A nice mention in the T&A about how well the club is doing in the competition, read here:
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.
