YVAA GP - Race 2 - Honley - 28th April 2013


Holmfirth Harriers Host 2nd Multi-terrain GP of 2013

On Sunday Holmfirth Harriers hosted the 2nd race in the YVAA Multi-terrain Grand Prix series for 2013. The tough course climbed up from the club base at Neiley through Smith Wood to The Ridings estate, Brockholes Lane, Oaks Lane and then across fields to Thurstonland before a gently undulating off road section to Farnley Tyas. Once past Farnley Tyas recreation ground a fast descent back down to Neiley and a final lap of the field completed the 6 mile course. The one hundred and eighty plus entrants and forty plus marshals were treated to fine if blustery conditions and the race was luckily completed before the weather turned wet in the afternoon. Holmfirth had both the first man in Dave Watson and first lady in Julia Johnson.
