Today we had a small number of Harriers head to the annual Leeds Abbey Dash race sponsored by Age UK. This event attracts a top class field each year due to its course profile which makes a personal best a real possibility.
Of our seven runners on the day, David Ralph was first home in 50:28 ahead of John Cook who was running with Ian Threadkell, finishing in 53:23 and 53:24 respectively. Danielle Clark back on home soil finished in a new personal best of 53:28 ahead of Mark and Lucia (Florian) Tallon, both crossing in 54:20. Sally Dale, pictured far right, finished her 10km in 69:14.
Reports emerged later that the course was actually measured 23m too short and that any race times would not be officially recognised!
Great work all of you, despite the course issues.
