John Carr Race Series – Race 1

The all new John Carr Series is a relaunched multi-terrain three race series in May organised by Saltaire Striders. It replaces the old series that consisted of three fast road races. The new series started with ‘The Trig’, an approximately 4 mile multi-terrain circular route from near Roberts Park in Saltaire. The route followed fields, tracks, woods & moorland up to Baildon Trig point and back down. Dry underfoot and a lovely evening made for excellent running conditions. Only 4 Harriers took part in race one. First across the line was Paul Gidlow in 29:44. He was followed by: David Womersley 38:59, Victoria Brides 49:05 and Hilary Wharam 1:03:44. 100 ran.
