YDRRL Easingwold 10k & W/e 29th May Round up…

YDRRL Easingwold 10k

Three races in and the Knavesmire  Summer League juggernaut steams on, we had just over 100 members of YKH racing on the night.

In the team competitions we again excelled , claiming the first two spots in the Men’s competition ( fourth also ! ) and first and third in the Ladies.

Individually Chris Roberts was second overall , Emma Yates first Lady & F45  , Sarah Attwood second Lady , Davis Smithers first M40  , Phillip Elliott-Dick second M40 ,  Barry Atkinson first M50 , John Oliver first M60 , Louise Venables second F35 , and Janet Hales first F65.

So in the collated results so far we have are looking good for several  individual honours and the all important team prizes. There are still 3 races to go so we can’t ease of the pressure yet though.


Helvellyn and the Dodds Fell Race.
