Runners from Stainland Lions, Northowram Pumas, Sowerby Bridge Snails and Halifax Harriers made up a significant percentage of the runners at the Overgate 10k and 5k races last weekend.

There was a total field of 288 and cool weather made for pleasant running conditions.

Queensbury RC’s Tom Collinge won the longer race in 34:22 from Halifax Harriers’ Ben Crowther in 35:25, Stainland’s Darren Reece in 37:35, Sowerby Bridge Snails’ Sean Suttle in 38:41 and Northowram Pumas’ Tim Brook in 40:01.

There was an outstanding effort from Halifax Harriers’ Johanna Sutcliffe, sixth home and first female in 40:19.

Lions also had Leon Severn in eighth and Gareth Knight in 10th. Stefanie Hopkins was third lady. Sandy Gee ran despite having completed 50 miles in The Woldsman the previous day. Clayton Cutter enjoyed it so much, he did a second lap of the course immediately afterwards.

Snails’ David Gee commented on the terrain: “That was one hard race. I’d like to say i enjoyed that but I don’t tell lies. All for a good cause though!”

There were 70 runners in the 5k race and Spenborough & District AC’s Daniel Smith was the first to finish in 22:17.
