On-song Tedd hits a home run with victory in Horsforth 10k
Woodhouse Grove director of music Phillip Tedd won Sunday’s HORSFORTH 10K in an impressive 33min 18sec. It follows his victory in May at the Apperley Bridge Canter which similarly starts and finishes at the school.
Otley’s Ian Fisher was second of the 543 finishers in 33:52. He helped his club to second position behind Valley Striders, ably supported by Liam Dunne, Simon Anderson and Howard Jeffrey.
Spenborough and Pudsey Pacers (4th-5th), and Skyrac and Queensbury (7th-8th) also performed well in the men’s team event.
Keighley & Craven’s Amy Green (38min 29sec) held off Idle AC’s Donna Edmondson Brooker (39:29) to victory in the ladies’ race. Happiest runner was probably Skyrac’s Jenny Beaumont, who smashed her own best, timing 41:38 in third.
Andrea led Bingley to female team victory, alongside Marisol Carrera-Vivar, Becky Weight and Katie Phillips. Keighley & Craven were second and Skyrac fourth.
A beautiful Lakeland day greeted Sunday’s ENGLISH SCHOOLS FELL-RUNNING CHAMPIONSHIPS at Kendal’s Queen Katherine School.
The host school finished second overall, behind Bradfield School from Sheffield. Ermysted’s were a fine third, with Bradford and Bingley Grammar Schools finishing ninth and tenth.
Skipton Girls’ Katie Atkinson won the Year Seven race, while Ermysted’s James Lund finished second in the Year 8-9 race. Matthew Merrick (Bingley GS) was sixth, while twin-sister Victoria was fifth among the Year 8-9 girls.
Emile Cairess (Bradford GS) took the Year 10-11 title. James Hall (Bingley GS) renewed his battle with Year 12-13 rival Max Wharton (Calder High) but had to settle for second.
Bingley’s Rob Jebb and Victoria Wilkinson were both recently crowned BRITISH FELL CHAMPIONS after the Peris Horseshoe race over Snowdon – with Jebb also winning Sunday’s THREE PEAKS CYCLO-CROSS for a record tenth time.
Saltaire’s Hannah Oldroyd was meanwhile one of 10,000 racing the UTRECHT SINGELLOOP. A trio of Kenyans won both men’s and women’s races. Hannah was 28th lady overall in a chip-time of 37min 37sec, ahead of many of the Dutch 10k elite.
