2019 Race Report 

Our race is held on the last Sunday in February each year, with the last event taking place on Sunday 24th February 2019. 

The weather forecast in the lead up to the race suggested we were in for a chilly but dry day, which lived up to it's promise although bright sunshine warmed up the air.

Continued use of chip timing meant we could manage up to 700 entrants, although this year were just short of reaching the entry limit as we closed for entries on Thursday 21st February. 

The race started at an earlier time of 09:30, but we still had runners entering from across the North of England. 

The men's (and race) winner was Chris Bevan an unattached runner in a time of 36:05 minutes, 47 seconds ahead of Meltham AC member Tom Whitworth who came in at 36:52 minutes. Third place was very close and went to Richard Herrington, an over 35 vet of St Theresa's AC who finished in 37:00 minutes.

The female race was Laura Hesketh, an over 35 vet of Clayton-le-Moors Harriers. Laura finished with a time of 38:31 minutes. The second female was Fiona Davies of Rotherham Harriers, an over 45 vet who was last years female winner, in a time of 39:12 minutes. Third place went to April Caufield, an open category member of Halifax Harriers AC in 41:24 minutes.  

For 2019 we upgraded the t-shirt to a technical t-shirt rather than cotton with a new modern colour scheme and The Huddersfield 10k as the focal point of the design - the feedback we received has been very positive.

Flaming Photography were out on the course and their photos can be found at www.flamingphotography.co.uk.  

Full race results for this and previous years can be found in the table below.

Thank you to everyone who took part and we hope you enjoyed the undulating Yorkshire course and the great weather on the day. We hope to see you all again in 2020.
