ILKLEY Harriers' Jemima Elgood was the fourth woman at the Settle Hills English Trials fell race for the Snowdon International Mountain Race.

She covered the testing route in a fraction under an hour and was 26th home overall, with fellow Harrier Dan McKeown also running a superb race in 19th, which was good enough for second place in the MV40 category.

Another fourth place - this time in a British and English Championship event - went to in-form Jack Wood at the Great Lakes fell race on Saturday, with his old rival Carl Bell, of Keswick, coming out on top this time.

Harriers' Roy Ruddle, Kate Archer, Dick Waddington and last year’s overall FV50 champion Alison Weston also registered excellent times in this challenging event.

There was an Ilkley winner at the Buckden Pike fell race, with Jack Cummings scooting clear of the field and into the mist on the brutal climb soon after the start.

He powered back on the steep descent to cross the line in 36 minutes and 18 seconds, more than a minute ahead of the second-placed finisher. Helen Wood (second female) and John Hayes were the other Ilkley runners in the race - and both made the top 30.

Closer to home and on the road, Jack Wood showed his versatility with his latest win coming in the Otley 10-mile.

The route features a fast three miles to start, followed by some testing hills crossing the Washburn Valley, north of the town.

Wood comfortably took first place, being 40 seconds ahead of second, while Rachel Carter - was fourth lady and first FV40. Six other Harriers took part, including Dave Foyston in 41st place of the 310 finishers.

Hilda Coulsey had a busy week, which started with a time of 24.22 for the York Evensplits 5k and finished with an impressive third place in the FV65 category at the ultra-competitive British Masters 5k event at Horwich.

The winners of the age categories were in the top few of the respective runbritain rankings and clocked some amazing times - with Mick Hill (an MV40) of Leeds notching 15.36 to win the 5k.

Other races in the last week included the Pudsey 10k, with Paul Stephens (52.12) and Emma Cole (one hour 11 minutes 50 seconds) representing the Harriers, while Colin Williams was third in a PB of 4.40.09 in the 32-mile ‘Grim up North, Leeds and Liverpool Canal Canter Summer Extravaganza’.

And on the Parkrun front, Rachel Carter’s stunning sequence of results continued as she was the first lady at Skipton in 19.57.
