YVAA Multi – terrain GP 7, Bingley
On Tuesday 23rd August we travelled over to Bingley for a new event put on by Bingley Harriers.
This started with a climb similar in steepness to the field in which the alpaca live and then passed through fields and woods before a stretch along the canal followed by another climb before the short drop down to the finish. There were some rough sections underfoot where concentration was needed with several people taking a tumble on protruding stones. An excellent course provided you kept your concentration!
Dave Watson in his first year of tackling these races won his 6th race and was backed up by other good performances by both men and women. Once again the women only managed three runners all of whom came in the top 6. If they could get a 4th runner out on a regular basis they would surely win the team trophy for the overall year’s events.
Margaret Sykes 3rd, 1st F40; Jacqui Khoueiry 4th, 3rd F35; Lesley Ewart 6th, 1st F55.
Dave Watson 1st, 1st M40; James Durrans 7th, 3rd M40; Jonathan Sykes 9th, 3rd M45; John Ewart 17th, 1st M55; David Roberts 31st, M45; Maz Khoueiry 34th, M40; Rob Kersey 37th, 1st M60; Bill Wade 89th, 1st M70; Tim Cock 92nd, 3rd M65; Simon Edwards 104th, M35
