Sunday 28th July – James Herriot Trail run 14K
There were 14 Quakers who headed over to Wensleydale to take on the recent Championship race; James Herriot Trail Race. The route takes you over the moorlands, taking in the scenic views. The undulating course was tough and the warm humid conditions made it harder for runners on the day. Marc Ellis gained the full 50 points with an age adjusted time of 54:55, Billy Harris gained 49 points with an age adjusted time of 58:26 and Michael Parry gained 48 points with an age adjusted time of 66:17. Well done to all Quakers who took part in this undulating race.
