Wharfedale Harriers took the top spots in the junior Coniston Gullies Fell Race last Sunday.

Over 100 fearless runners tackled the short but sharp course that included a treacherous skate over scree on the descent.

Under-17 winner James Hall (Wharfedale) flew over the line in 10min 15sec with a comfortable lead.

Ben Johnstone, Charlie Lowrie and Logan Hargreaves-Madhas secured the Wharfedale winning streak by scoring first places in the under-14, under-12 and under-nine races respectively.

Alastair Dunn, from Kendal-based club Helm Hill, won the senior race with a fleeting 14min 8sec and first lady Kate Rogan (Wharfedale) also benefited from the lovely weather in 22min 7sec.

Ian Rowbotham (Ilkley Harriers) took the title for first male vet (and first over-50) in 17min 33sec, with an 11th placing overall.

Ilkley Harriers have taken over the organisation of the Will Ramsbotham Badger Stone Relays on Ilkley Moor.

On Wednesday, 51 teams, including 14 junior and family sides, participated despite cold, wet weather.

A great atmosphere and excellent marshalling by the Ilkley volunteers made the event fun for all involved.

Congratulations to first team Pudsey & Bramley and to first ladies’ team, Wharfedale Harriers.

On Sunday, the third Ilkley Harriers' Trail Race takes place.

Starting at 11.30am, this 6.9-mile course splices woodland and moors with short road sections and offers superb views over the Wharfe Valley across to Ilkley Moor.

Runners should enjoy a speedy second half as they come off the moors. The race records set in the inaugural 2008 event are 40min 26sec by Steve Vernon (Stockport Harriers) and 50min 9sec by Karen Pickles, and 136 runners have so far pre-registered.

Coming up is the five-mile Bingley St Ives Multi-Terrain Race on Tuesday, June 15.

There is an alternative three-mile course as well. All proceeds go to the Bingley Riding for the Disabled Association. Entry is £5 and payable on the night.

A record 49 teams have registered for the Bradford Millennium Way Relay on June 13. Seven teams of ten from Keighley & Craven and five from Airedale Athletics Club are joined by six Lancastrian and two continental teams.
