Sunday 23rd January - PECO Cross Country League: Race 4

The last time a PECO league race was held at West Park in Leeds (in the days when Corona was an alcoholic beverage) there was a storm of biblical proportions with rain, sleet, hail, thunder, lightning and locusts (by all accounts). So, Sunday's dry but chilly weather was comparatively tropical!

The undulating 4.5(ish) mile course weaved around the park and playing fields before heading into a wooded area near to the Leeds University. The field near the finish was muddy enough to see one or two runners loosing their shoes and finishing barefoot with shoes in hand!

First home for the Harriers Ladies was Jo Derry with a time of 37:56, with Glen Johnson in the mens race with a time of 32:36

Well done also to Tom Derry with his time of 31:56 in the senior mens race and Gail Jamieson's son, Max, for finishing the junior race with only one shoe!

Alice Leake (Leeds City AC) was first home (301 finishers) in the Ladies event for the fourth time in this years league with a time of 29:02. Meanwhile Benjamin Douglas (Hyde Park Harriers) was first home in the senior mens race (428 finishers) with a time of 25:55. Full results can be seen here.
