A beautiful summer’s evening presented a fine show for the annual Cinnamon Lodge Chase on Weds 18th August 2010. A field of nearly 100 runners basked in the evening sun over Meltham, enjoying the course which took in a variety of paths and trails.
The men’s event was won by Mark Buckingham of Holmfirth Harriers in a time of 35:44, with a lead of over 2 minutes to Ben Crowther of Halifax Harriers, and a further minute to Jason Stevens (M40) in 3rd. Meltham AC’s top finisher was Rob James in a time of 39:30 in 6th position.
In the ladies’ section, Charlotte Sanderson came home a comfortable winner in a time of 42:38, beating Julie Buckley (F50) and Lesley Leggett (F50) into 2nd and 3rd.
Thanks go out to the organiser Mike Harrison and to all members who helped out as marshalls and other guises on the day. We hope you all enjoyed the event and we hope to see you all again next year, or at one of our of other upcoming events – the Meltham Cop Hill Fell race, and the Meltham 10k.
