Heptonstall Fell Race…
Four Queensbury runners took part in the Heptonstall Fell Race this weekend. A brutal 6.5 mile fell race with 1500 feet of ascent! With the sun baking down, the task looked daunting and proved too much for one runner who collapsed over the finish line suffering from dehydration and was subsequently taken to hospital in an Ambulance. A number of retirees from the race also highlighted how tough the race was.
Some gritty performances from Peter Hughes, Ben Clare, Mick Coe & Graham Jowett who all showed they could put it in right to the end, taking a number of places in the final climb up the last field. Full results not yet published.
Two Queensbury finishers in the top 5 this weekened at Bradford Parkrun. Martin continues his recovery from a niggling injury and almost reached his personal best, whilst Steve W and Darren both completed their 37th Bradford parkrun.
