Posted: Friday, May 31st, 2013

The next race in the Meltham Championship, The Dovestone Diamond was run on Wednesday 29th May. Meltham AC were well represented with 12 members in the race. After lots of rain for a couple of days before the race, the course was quiet wet and muddy. First Meltham AC runner was Graeme Lee who took Mark Cope’s place at the last minute, in 47:44, followed by Steve Perren and Paul Elliott. Well done also to Adele Tayles who came in first  in her category. Full results and pictures can be found here.

 

 

A big thank you to Jason and Colin for hosting a great friendly event, which was well organised with excellent marshalling. Catering and real ale available at the finish.

Wharfedale Half Marathon

Posted: Sunday, June 13th, 2010

On Saturday 5th June, several club members competed in the Wharfedale Off-Road Half Marathon, gaining themselves points for the Club Championship.  This 13 mile fell race, which starts and finishes at Wharfedale Rugby Club, in Threshfield, takes in some of Wharfedale’s finest scenery following well established footpaths including the Dalesway and Mastiles Lane.  The event was won in a time of 1hr 34min 27sec by Bob Addey, with the leading female competitor, Holly Williams, completing the course in 1hr 50min 16sec.

The race for Championship points was again keenly fought between Ray McArthur and Mick Lunn, with Ray finishing just a minute clear, although both were comfortably under the 2hr mark.  Gilly took full points in the female section with a 2hr 15min clocking.  Full results can be found here.
