Hosts Skyrac AC dominated the final West Yorkshire League Cross Country event of 2013, held at Nunroyd Park in Guiseley.

The club won four out of the ten races on the day, which included the first three and the final event in a thrilling afternoon’s action.

The highlight came in the senior men’s race, where victory was secured by David McNamee on his debut in Skyrac’s colours.

Skyrac secured wins in the junior section through Sam Akerman, Eva Jones and Eleanor Jones.

It was a great day for both Eva and Eleanor who also claimed the league titles for the under-11 girls and under- 13 girls age groups respect- ively for their performances during the year.

It also capped off a superb first season in cross country for Eleanor who won all four league races with some impressive performances. A league title also went to Ethan Hussey in the under-11 boys age group, but he was unable to race on the Guiseley course due to injury.

Elsewhere, there was a superb result for Laura Kirk who took secondplace in the senior women’s race after a strong run.

Overall, Skyrac had 16 top-ten finishes in the final standings across all the leagues age groups, with individual medals going to Rebecca Cesar de Sa, Nick Howard, Andy McCue and Alan Bye.

The under-11 boys also took the overall team prize, with other team awards going to the under-13 girls (silver) and the senior men (bronze).

Throughout the season, over 50 Skyrac athletes have competed in the series with many now looking forward to the Yorkshire Championships which will be held at Lightwater Valley on the first weekend in January.
