The 10k league got off to a brilliant start at Pocklington with a record field of 297 taking to the classic course round the foothills of the Yorkshire Wolds. A slight headwind in the early stages probably slowed us down in the early stages but other than that it was perfect running conditions.
There was a changing of the guard in the men’s race as new faces filled the top three places in the men’s race. Ewan Brown (Knavesmire) took the lead from the outset and he won with time of 32.51. Our own Andy Munzer had a lonely run for 2nd as he finished well clear of York University’s Richard Weeks Unfortunately Knavesmire Harriers had far too many runners out in the team race as they easily overcame us… next time…
The women’s race was a more familar tale of the battle between the two Emmas as our Emma Willits defeated Emma Yates from Knavesmire by nearly a minute to win in an impressive time of 37.38. The Ladies team claimed the bronze medal in the team competition
I look forward to seeing everyone for the next race at Tadacaster on their new flatter course (14 May 7.30pm race start) http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5884829

Several Acorns had a sparkling day running round the hills and canals of West Yorkshire. It was glorious running down through the Esholt woods, with spring in the air (or was it the sewage works!). We then came to the canal, 3 miles of running torture – very boring and tedious but it put miles under our feet. Just past Shipley we took to the country, up Shipley Glen, which sounds quite beautiful, until you have to run it! We eventually appeared at the top and then cantered across Baildon moor to the gallops. For those with time on their hands there was a great view across the snow drifts towards the Chevin and Leeds airport. Soon it was downhill, then across the road with a sharp up hill in the finish field.
The results are:
The second club league event took place on Easter Sunday. A lovely race round the market town of Helmsley on a mixture of road and trails. The results below showed some fine running in the cold conditions.
The next race is Baildon Boundary
