West Yorkshire winter league 2021-22 #5

Mud, mud, glorious mud…..

Pudsey Pacers hosted the fifth cross country race of the 2021-22 West Yorkshire Winter League series on Sunday 9th January at the extensive grounds of Parkwood Outdoor venue near Tong. The 5-mile course followed loops along forest trails and a wide grassy hill with a very large amount of mud and slippery grass to test the field of nearly 400 runners.

A sprint over the final 100 metres saw Queensbury’s Dylan Naylor first across the line, with Tom Collinge not far behind in 8th place. All in all a magnificent performance by the 19 runners representing QRC, with each one showing real grit and determination to overcome the conditions underfoot. Thanks as well to QRC Race director, Glenn Thornton for his support for the Queensbury crew.
