Summer has arrived making racing a hot and sticky affair! Hopefully some of you are on holiday and will have a bit of time to sit down and have a look at some the amazing results we have had in May. The Committee is meeting on Tuesday so please email to homnom@ilkleyharriers.org.uk or post your nomination on Facebook. And don’t forget the volunteers! As usual, I am relying on you to pick out any great performances which I have unintentionally missed!

Tom Adams has bounced back winning John Carr race 3, and setting new course records at Over the Odda and Ilkley Trail Race. The two Jacks have also had great months - Jack Wood making the selection for the World Long Distance Mountain Champs, and taking wins at Harrogate Parkrun, Jack Bloor fell race and Otley Chevin fell race, whilst Jack Cummings was 2nd overall at the John Carr races, 10th at Jack Bloor and 4th at Ilkley Trail Race and 3rd at the Chevin fell race. Welcome to new member Will Simmons who came 10th at Chester Half Marathon with an impressive time of 1.14.48, and also took first place at Harden Trail Race and 3rd at Ilkley Trail Race.

For the ladies there were good placings for Kate Archer who was second at Great Whernside uphill only race and Jo Foster who took first place at the Malhamdale trail race, The ultimate off road challenge has to be the Bob Graham Round which Jane McCarthy tackled last weekend completing the course (which totals 66 miles and takes in 42 lakeland peaks) in a whisker over 23 hours, and therefore comfortably within the 24 hours allowed to be in the Club. Other of our vet ladies have had great results this month with many taking part in John Carr, Over the Odda, Leeds Half with Alison Weston, Adela Reperecki, Hilda Coulsey and Petra Bijsterveld all claiming first Vet Lady prizes in their age group. Please check out the finer details on the website and get nominating!
