Weekend Report

The Bradford City Run took part this weekend, comprising of a half marathon, a 10k & a 5k. Queensbury RC had quite a few entries into the half marathon with no members opting for the shorter distances. A wet and windy day provided the difficult conditions we’re more than used to up here. Martin Firth (1:25:27) won his age category and finished 7th overall after a close battle with local Bingley rival Stephen Fry. Carl Heron (1:30:55) was next followe dby Richard Brook (1:41:03), Graham Jowett (1:48:33), Andrew Tempest-Mitchell (1:58:35) & Helen Collins (2:24:06)
