Jolly Holly Jog Fun Run, Sun 28 Dec 2003
Sharp Intake of Cold Air for Young Ilkley Harriers

Jolly Holly Jog

Vince Gibbons reports ... After a gasping start for Ilkley Junior Harriers, Mary Gibbons claimed the prize for third placed female in a 74 strong field at the Jolly Holly Jog Fun Run.
Six Ilkley Harriers travelled to Ripon for the seasonal event, organised by Ripon Runners, on Sunday 28 December.
Finding the start proved to be the toughest task of the day. There was no provision for advance entries and the Ilkley athletes arrived at the venue with just minutes to spare. Numbers were still being pinned onto vests as the starting gun was fired!
It was a cold start as the Ilkley runners, deprived of a warm-up, gulped down freezing air and chased off after the pack on the frosty course over one and a half miles. Nevertheless, the entire Ilkley contingent finished strongly.
Brothers Simon and Bradley Chapman came in close together. Simon was placed 23rd with a time of 13 min 38 sec, just ahead of Bradley, Ilkley’s youngest runner in the Christmas race, 24th in 13 min 40 sec.
Ilkley results: 16 Mary Gibbons, 11minutes 57 seconds; 17 Patrick Gibbons, 12 min 02 sec; 18 Catherine Gibbons, 12 min 07 sec; 23 Simon Chapman 13 min 38 sec; 24 Bradley Chapman, 13 min 40 sec; 44 Eileen Gibbons, 16 min 30 sec.

Also well done to Annabel's brother Oliver who came second in the U/9s and he is only six years old. A Junior Harrier for the future.
