Harrier of the Month time! What happened to June?! It’s been such a busy month on and off-road there’s a lot to go at so as usual this is just a drive-by summary and I rely on you all to check out the website and nominate anyone I have unintentionally overlooked who you know has been quietly working away - it’s not just the winners who count! The Harrogate District Road League races have seen great results with lots of people improving their performances over the series. Well done to all taking part. Off road the Wharfedale Half Marathon, a league race, attracted a huge number of Harriers with some impressive performances. Outi Kamarainen was part of the 1st female team to win the score class of this year’s LAMM. Jack Wood won the tough Welsh 1000m Peaks Race whilst the other Jack (Cummings) has had a storming month on the fells taking 4th at Kettlewell, 3rd at Hawkswick and winning Buckden Pike. There have been some great results in the longer distance events for a number of harriers - Andrew Merrick smashing his first 100 miler, Ben Sheppard and Paul Carman both taking first position on the Wharfedale 3 and 2 peaks challenge respectively, with Jann Smith coming an impressive 3rd Lady. The Ilkley Skyline Challenge is attracting more harriers with Nick Pearce recently completing the course with Kate Archer, both recording impressive times - Nick sweeping up the V50 and V60 records and Kate being the fastest female this year. Sharon Meadows took on a solo DOUBLE Three Peaks (yep you heard it right!) raising money for the British Heart Foundation and the LGI Heart Unit. Last but most certainly not least, congratulations to Steve Turland who successfully completed a Bob Graham round in less than ideal conditions finishing in a superb 22 hours and 40 minutes - amazing. As always don’t forget the volunteers and the Committee is meeting on Tuesday so please nominate as soon as you can on Facebook or email to homnom@ilkleyharriers.org.uk Thank you!!!
