The Vets team before the start of the Championships

 

Once again the vets turned out in force for these team championships where we managed to enter 4 men’s teams and 3 women’s teams, only missing out on the M70+ and F55+ teams. Our women’s teams continued to show their strength with both the F35 – 44 and F45 – 54 teams winning their events. The men’s teams also came home with medals, the M40 – 49 and M50 – 59 teams both gaining silver medals.

Notable individual performances within age groups included Helen Berry 2nd fastest time F35 - 44 (15:57), Margaret Sykes fastest time F45 – 54 (16:15), Dave Watson fastest time M40 – 49 and fastest leg of the day (13:55) and Julian Rose fastest M50 – 59 (15:22). Well done to all those that took part whether medallists or not and indeed to Phil Senior who travelled as reserve for M60 team. Holmfirth results below and full results at www.yvaa.org

Being delayed by the French air traffic control strike I missed this event as well but a small contingent made their way over to Meanwood for this totally off road race. In the men’s race, Dave Watson was once again first home winning in 27:13, from his nearest rival, Gavin Mulholland of Stainland (27:34). Dave was followed by David Roberts 15th, 2nd M50, 31:43; John Ewart 21st, 2nd M55, 32:32; Sean McCaffrey 50th, M45, 35:40; Paul Winn 121st, M60,44:16; Bill Hunter 129th, M65, 45:53; Tim Cock 135th, M70, 47:47. In the women’s race Margaret Sykes returned to be placed 2nd and 1st F45 in 33:00. She was followed by Lesley Ewart 7th, 1st F55, 38:09 and Rosemary Baker 18th, 2nd F50, 40:59.
