Success at the Harrogate 10K

Dave battles it out at the Harrogate 10k

A quintet of runners including Turnbull make an early break

Three Holmfirth Harriers made the trip to the North Yorkshire spa town with what turned out to be a fruitful trip for all!

On arrival in Harrogate, the weather was overcast providing perfect running conditions for the competitors for this two lap, hilly road race.

A fast pace was set from the start as five runners including Holmfirth's Dave Turnbull made a break to clear of the rest of the field early on. Heading into the second lap this was soon whittled down to three leaving Turnbull, Mike Burrett (Leeds City) and James Buis (Border) to battle it out for the win.

Turnbull measured his effort and with a mile to go picked up the pace passing Burrett and Buis who had no response to his injection of speed. Turnbull continued to move away to take the race victory by 12 seconds from Burrett in a time of 32:18.

Stu Sharp on his Holmfirth debut had a terrific run to finish 7th place and record a new personal best of 34:50. Sharp who has not raced since April's Boston Marathon showed that his recent training with the Harriers had already had an impact on his performance. A course more suited to recording fast times will certainly see Sharp make massive inroads into his PB.

Finally, Bill Wade ran a splendid time of 50:54, his quickest of 2013, and took the 1st M70 prize.
