TARMAC Every runner counts in HDSRL races W
ell after a quiet couple of months on the road, things are hotting up again. There’s been a batch
of good 10Ks and some fab results for both 10 mile and 20 mile races. The spring marathoners seem to be flying at the moment, good luck to them all over the next couple of weeks, all that hard work will be worth it. Wednesday 4 May sees the start of the John Carr 5K series, a local three-race series (though you can do one or all of them) from Esholt. If you haven’t signed up yet, now is the time to do it as you can’t enter on the night, see Saltaire Striders (previously St. Bedes AC) for more details. The day after, Thursday 5 May, sees the return of the Harrogate District Summer Road League (HDSRL) with the first race of around 5 miles at Thirsk. Please sign up
The 2011 League is now well underway with five of the 18 events completed.
The fell competition kicked off with the Windmills Whizz and Tom’s second place just eight seconds down on the winner ensured some good points despite his lack of a helping age-handicap factor.
1 Tom Adams 99.64 2 Mark Mon-Williams 93.70 3 Jamie Hutchinson 91.69 4 Dave Cummings 90.13 5 Graham Breeze 87.69 6 Rebecca Mon-Williams 86.38
7 Paul Stephens 86.35 8 Duncan Cooper 83.50 9 Jim Towers 80.85
10 Chris Oxlade 79.52 11 Lyn Eden 74.58
The next fell counter is during the excellent Wharfedale TTT weekend in July, and then our Addingham Gala fell race on 9 July.

ILKLEY HARRIERS NEWSLETTER • APRIL–JUNE 2010
on 30 May. And after two races in the road competition (the Dewsbury 10K and the Thirsk 10 mile), Jane is (quite rightly) Queen of the Road, but with a very close competition behind her.
1 Jane Bryant 171.86 2 Andrew Sheldon 156.60 3 Rob Cunningham 156.54 4 Richard Morris 155.98
Can any of these three pretenders to the crown beat Jane at the John Carr 5K on 4 May?
Overall, Mark Mon-Willliams leads the League with 374 points from 4 races, to Club Secretary Paul Stephens’ 336. But it’s early days yet!
on club nights or let a committee member know if you want a number as they need a signature. Harrogate League races are friendly 5-to-6 mile races during the spring/summer months, and importantly every runner scores points for the Ilkley Harriers team, it doesn’t matter where you come everyone scores and there’s a free tea!! See back page and the for details of the League races.
I will be hopefully taking a couple of teams to the British Masters Road Relays in Birmingham on 21 May. I need a team of four for the V35s and teams of three for the V45s and V55s. Unfortunately, as it is a national event, we can only take one team per category. Please contact me if you wish to be in a team as soon as possible, by the 20th April. Jane Bryant, Women’s Road Captain
