Knavesmire 12 June
Another great turnout with 35 representing the club. Weather much better than Easingwold and with the flat course we had 16 PBs with another 7 running a seasons best. The Mens A team excelled with 7 runners under 40 minutes enough to squeeze out York Acorn and take 2nd on the night and reinforce their 3rd overall. Not to be outdone, the Ladies also took 2nd ahead of Acorn and have maintained their 2nd overall standing.
Easingwold 29 May
Well done to Richard and his team for a well run event and thanks to the Galtres Centre and Galtres Timber for their support. A warm and humid evening making the challenging route even harder. 255 took part and despite organising the event, 41 from the club finished the event. With good performance from both teams; the Mens A team were 3rd and the Ladies A 2nd with both holding those positions overall in best 2 from 3.

Stay to the right up and over Crayke and all the way down the hill to the right turn into the narrow Daffy lane at 5.5 KM; drinks ahead. Beware of the uneven surface and a few potholes on Daffy Lane. Return to the left side of the road on rejoining the Crayke - Easingwold Road at 7.5 KM and stay on the left to finish. Keep a bit of energy to look good for the run throught the Market Place!
