Saturday 22nd January – John Cowan Harewood Handicap

Saturday 22nd January – John Cowan Harewood Handicap

A great start to the 2022 Eric Smith handicap trophy, with 33 taking part at Harewood and for Ruth who finished a clear winner ahead of Vicky and Rachel. For a January handicap the conditions were really good, not too cold, dry and only a little bit of mud near the finish. There was great commitment from several coming straight from park runs a couple of hours earlier. That didn’t stop new member Stephen Morris recording the fastest time of…

Stanbury Splash – Sunday 16th January 2022

Report from Megan McCall We turned up super early, one of the first in the carpark and were rewarded with the most amazing sunrise.. before the clouds came in. Early bird catches the worm as they say. I was here on race day as usual with my first team (husband Ross, little boy Jesse – my mascot and our trusty cowbell of course). I braved my leopard print short shorts today because why not and when I ran this race…

Race Report – Nicola Swann This is the fourth time I’ve done this race and it was great to be back this year after there was no event in 2021.  I’m not quite sure what puts Otley members off this event as there always seem to be a low turn out.
