A fair turnout at distant Thirsk enjoyed a great evening's running. We remain in 3rd place in the team competition, the ladies hold a strong lead, our lady vets tore into the lead, and our male Vets team were a notable 2nd again - their consistency gives us 2nd Vet team overall. The Elite chaps were 3rd on the night, so we remain 3rd overall.

Buckden Fell Race, Sat 19 June 2004

AS 4M/1500' The 3rd race in the internal link English Fell Championships. The showers before and during the race made the very steep descents a challenge - people were travelling faster on their bottoms than on their feet. Not sure about the chap who slid past me head first, though ...

The ladies race, starting 15 minutes before the men over the same course, was won by Victoria Wilkinson, Unatttached (we'll have her!) in 39:28. First Harrier was Helen Sedgwick 8th in 43.58; 9th Kirstin Bailey (Bingley) 44.25; 10th Alison Eagle (3rd vet 40) 44.28, with little separating the trio of 24th Nicky Kime 48:30, 25th Sally Malir 48.33 and 27th Joyce Marshall 48.56

Congratulations to Helen Sedgwick and Alison Eagle who have been selected to represent Yorkshire in the inter-counties fell championships race, partly on the basis of this performance.

In the mens race Graham Pearce was first Harrier 46th in 37.26, 66th Jim Ryder 39.21, 90th Mike Baldwin 40.40, with another top performance from Geoff Howard 98th in 41.00 and first vet 60. Jon Sage was 110th in 42.02, Iain Gibbons 119th in 42.30, Roy Ruddle 122nd in 42.38, Ian Marshall 150th in 44.36, Norman Bush 153rd in 44.49, Neil Chapman 162nd in 45.51, Pete Shields 163rd in 45.57, Morgan Williams, recovering from injury 165th in 46.12, and Peter Sibley 202nd in 50.28, 250 finished. Second-claimers were Jason Hemsley 35th in 36:30. and Stefan Macina 54th in 38:01, both P&B

We had 3rd ladies team with 42 points.

This is a counter in the internal link Harriers Running League - Simon Bailey won in 30.57 (just 6s outside Colin Donnelly's 1998 record).

Millenium Way Relay, Sun 13 June 2004

On the third running of the BMW Relay, Ilkley's ladies were 2nd and our men's team 12th

For the men, Phil Atkinson and John Smith brought us in in 18th place, 1h33. Phil Chappell and Keith Wood were 22nd on their leg, 1h40:53, bringing us up to 20th overall. It was looking good after Richard Gray and David Ibbotson ran 1h18:27 to finish 13th on their leg: we were now 17th overall. But Graham Pearce and Neil Chapman did even better: 6th fastest on their leg in 1h16:30 to give us 14th overall. Then Ken Souyave (Ken's back!) and Clive Smith topped that: 2nd fastest on their leg in 1h23:32 to finish 12th team overall in 7h12:22.

The ladies led for 3 legs: Alisons Eagle and Bennett running 1h27:14 (comfortably beating our chaps); then Liz McCann and Barbara Bullock 1h38 also thrashing the lads in 1h38:13. Sue Bickerdike and Helena Deeney ran 1h21:33; Bernie Gibbons and Cath Porritt 1h38:40; and Bridget Doherty and Susie Jollie 1h42:56 for a total time of 7h48:36

Middleton Trail Race, Sun 13 June 2004

Whilst the Round Table Fun Run course has remained the same for 20 years or so, the "senior" event was originally a 2 lap 8 mile road race. Then it was changed to the out and back 10k to Askwith. This year saw the second running of the Midleton Trail Race extended to 8k. with the addition of a loop beyond the "concrete square".
20 years ago 437 runners contested the Ilkley "8" which was promoted for several months ahead with repeated press previews. The basic organisation last week was still generally good and being a trail race the event should have appealed to hundreds of "roadrunners" and "fellrunners". Unfortunately only 66 took part this year.
Nevertheless included in this small field were 4 Harriers. Once again showing age is no barrier to success Geoff Howard (V60) was first to show in 7th place overall in 42.30; next came Terry Lonergan (V55) 11th overall in 45.38 just ahead of the first lady to finish Catherine Wolfenden 13th overall in 46.08. (Nearly 5 minutes ahead of the next lady) with Andy Kitchen 34th in 54.12 and Antonio Cardinale 40th (56m 26s).

HDSRRL #3, Otley, Wed 9 June 2004

A good turnout of 34 runners out for the testing 10k Otley course. We remain in 3rd place in the team competition, the ladies hold a strong lead, our lady vets had a good win on the night to close the gap on the Old Dragons (sorry, couldn't resist!), and our male Vets team were a notable 2nd - their consistency gives us 2nd Vet team overall.
Note a change of date for the next race at Thirsk: Tuesday 22 June

Other team members were John Smith and Chris Scofield who are not Ilkley Harriers. Therefore, our team name was 'Gritstone Grinders'!

ASKERN 10K, Wed 19 May 2004

Terry Lonergan reports ... Fail to prepare....prepare to fail! and so it proved as an inadequate warm up resulted in trouble at 7k in this fast South Yorkshire race. Progress up to then had been good on a superb night for fast times but when the "gear change" was made for the last 3k hamstring damaged occurred.
Nevertheless the final time of 38.00 was very satisfactory in the circumstances and still good enough for 3rd. over 55 (58th of 487) with thoughts of what might have been.
Lesson? Arrive early enough for a 2 mile jog, some strides amd some stretching.... particularly if you are over 50!

Leeds Half Marathon, Sun 16 May 2004

Neil Chapman reports ... A number of Harriers were out tackling the Leeds Half, in high temperatures which were great for spectators. The runners took encouragement from their fellow Harriers en route who were doing the Corporate Challenge and the superb facilities provided by the organisers. The top performance of the day came from Alison Bennett who ran 1:36:01 and was 8th lady overall, 250th overall, and 1st lady Vet40. Other results were myself 69th 1:26:46, 234 Jamie Hutchinson 1:35:33, 288 Nick Richardson 1:37:06, 374 Anthony Swanepoel 1:40:13, 682 Vince Gibbons 1:47:43. Linda Wright was the first of the Wright family this week, getting round 740th in 1:48:46, despite being distracted by the aroma of food and locals on bus shelters using her as target practice. Jane Beresford was 855th in 1:51:09, Vicky Wright did 1:51:14 for 861st, with Sue Bickerdike close behind in 1:52:06 905th, 967 Helena Deeney 1:53:19; 1380 Roger Pyle 2:02:09, 1678 Elaine Cossins 2:08:48, and Andrew Wright 1758th in 2:10:35. Great results in testing conditions.

Paul adds... In the Corporate Challenge Relay, the Up & Running team with myself and Andy Wolfenden were chuffed to finish 2nd out of some 90 teams. This is a counter in the internal link Harriers Running League - the race was won by Thomas Abyu in 68:25

Cragg Vale fell race, Mon 3 May 2004

CS 5.7m/570' Morgan Williams was 40th in a field of 84 with a time of 45:50
Morgan reports ... "A bright but breezy day over in Calderdale. The 5.7 mile route goes up the valley a short way, climbs steeply and then its fairly flat (alongside a drainage channel for some way) to Withins Clough reservoir. Around the reservoir and back the same way. A bit flat and fast for me, only a few hundred feet of steep downhill in the equation but caught a few on the descent. The race was won by Karl Gray of Calder Valley in a new record of 35.10. Following her victory at Bunny Run 2, the ladies race was won by Blue Haywood, the U13 National Cross Country Champion who saw off all-comers including Jo Smith of Calder Valley. She is tiny but runs like the wind! The race is based at the Cragg Vale village Fete so those of you who like a bit of maypole dancing would not have been disappointed. Shame the Hinchcliffe Arms is closed on a Monday though!"

Pendle fell race, Sat 3 April 2004

AS 4.5m/1500' Nick Pearce reports ... Hoping for a quite race, but Lancashire Championship event so anybody not in Ireland was there. Did whole race in driving rain, Graham nearly died when he got to the bottom of the second climb and looked up - practically vertical and a long way up. But he did very well, 15th in 37.42 out of well over 200 runners. Race won in a little over 34 mins, 5 mins outside the record but conditions not good. Stefan Macina 17th in 38.04, and Nick Pearce 40th in 40.40
