Fri 30 March 2018 Nineteen Harriers turned out on Good Friday for the challenging but popular Calder Vale 10 miler, which also offered Harriers their second chance to record a 10 mile counter for the road championship. Conditions were well suited for racing with Karl Hodgson (63:40) holding off a returning Andy Whaley (63:58), to finish first male Harrier for the fourth time this season, taking fifth place in the overall race. Neil McDonald (66:05) was third male Harrier home, taking the first male vet 50 prize on the day and helping the Harrier men to secure the male team prize.
Alison Rushton (77:30) was the first of the Harrier women to cross the finishing line, taking her second first place club championship finish of the season. She was closely followed by Emma Essex-Crosby (79:53). Vicki Sherrington (89:59) was our third female finisher and is now second in the women’s open category and first in the women’s vet 40 category.
The other Harriers who ran were Ben Read, Andrew Lea, Angela Tranter, Darren Kinder, Ian Patterson, Jack Keighley, Julie Tyrer, Katie Littlefair, Olga Wiggins, Stephen Mort, Stephen Taylor, Steve Townhill and Sue Wickham.
A short fun run was also held in Calder Vale with Harriers’ Elizabeth Tranter finishing 18th out of 50 runners.
