Thirsk and Sowerby Harriers...

1st June, 2024.

The Harrogate League season began with the long trip to Skipton on Thursday evening, where uncertain weather made running clothe awkward to decide.

In the end, the conditions were pleasant enough for this 5.5 mile course which is on the roads but certainly not flat.

Well, it wouldn't be round Skipton! Matt Jones was the fastest club finisher in 24th place out of 367 in 32.32.

Esther Harrison in 67th place in a time of 35.47 was 2nd lady, and Josh Cooper, 71st, took 35.65. Joe O'Keeffe's time was 40.12, David Tervit 42.43, closely followed by Dave Baker, 43.00, and Kerri-Lee Wooding 43.36. Geoff Bullock, 1st M75, recorded a time of 48.13, with Alan Docherty 48.48 and Liz Wordsworth 49.19. Others taking part were Stuart Hill, Rosie Gatenby, Tracey Docherty, Chris Wordsworth, Beth Haggath and Hugh Jenyns.

Runners were supplied with banana and shortbread to aid recovery.
