Club Championship Review

Its good to see a few more Ladies taking part in the CC. Nicola dominates proceedings with four straight wins carrying on from last season and is followed by the consistent Dawn and Sima who has three good results, can anybody catch them? Well done to Tracey who bagged a win early season. Plenty of races to come Ladies, give it a go!

The mens CC is in essence still wide open with 5 different men having taking 1st place in a race on the age graded system. Last years champion Ian is being challenged by new member Tom and there could be challenges from James and Andy if they steer clear of injury. Stalwart Martin will also be a strong contender, there could be others with a late surge – keep a close eye on Guy. Will we see a late,late charge from Conrad??

Harrogate District Summer Road League – Race 3 – 31/5/16 – Swaledale

A late well done from me to all who competed at Nidd Valley – another good turn out.

The next event is this Tuesday, to be held by Swaledale runners. If you have registered and not run yet this could be a great starter run. Profile shows a long downhill run outwards with just a lump at the end to surmount.

Key for this event – Post Code for venue is DL6 2DW.

Do read Summer Road Lge website for other information. Hope to see you. Thanks Eric
