Netherthong 10K

Harriers working together

Holmfirth Harriers working together

The 10K is great local race known for it's challenging hills and very rewarding downhill sections. Jonny Mclean, recuperating after a brilliant season in Triathlon was the race winner – his first win in a “proper” road race!  

Jonny reports "I really enjoyed Netherthong and didn't expect to do so well.  I've been taking it very easy on the training front since London, running once a week and wasn't gonna do the race but my kids talked me into it (they go to Netherthong School and did the junior 2k race so I couldn't really say no!)"

He continues, "Conditions were pleasant for running, quite a strong chilly wind which was tough coming back to Bradshaw Road from the golf club and also down to Oldfield. I ran the whole race with Simon Courtney from Stadium Runners; nobody made a move until the turning up to the Cricketers Arms.  I felt he was struggling so I decided to 'turn the screws' and he didn't come with me.

I think I ran well because I'd not put any pressure on myself and was purely running to satisfy the wife and kids!"

The race attracted athletes from many of the local athletic clubs including 23 Harriers (the best turnout second to Stadium runners with 24). Jonny commented "It was a great turnout from Holmfirth and it was nice to hear team mates had done well, many achieving course PB's".

First lady was Bridget Croomer from Denby Dale.
