A little spot of rain didn’t dampen the spirits of 242 runners as we descended on to Homfirth Harriers country for the opening round of the YVAA season.
14 QRCers made the trip over to Honley, with the majority having a good run.
With a 2 lap opening circuit of the rugby pitch it was out at the far side of the field to the 1st of the climbs (which in my opinion went on for approximately 10 miles) through fields and dirt tracks passing Brockholes and upto Thustonland, a water station at half way offered refreshments, before the drop back towards the home of Holmfirth Harriers and a final lap of the field, where the early finishers cheered us slower runners in.
A couple of standout performances
Pete Hughes 1st MV60
Stacey Cleal 1st FV50
Jo Horan 7th lady overall
Carl heron 4th MV55
Mens team (all to count) 3rd place, 1st 4 to count 4th place
Womens team (all to count) 6th , 1st 4 to count 3rd place
Awesome stuff guys, but we still need more female vets, so come on girls give these a go.
