THE deluge of rain on Sunday added an extra dimension to both of the day's feature races but it didn't prevent two of Ilkley Harriers' star names from adding to their long list of achievements.

Tom Adams collected his latest victory at the aptly-named Stanbury Splash while Jack Wood smashed his own all-time club record for the half marathon at the Brass Monkey event at York.

At the former, the downpours turned what had been a relatively dry course into raging becks and slip-sliding mud around Haworth.

But taking it all in his stride was Adams who ran out the emphatic winner in a time of 45 minutes and 29 seconds, almost a full minute ahead of Robin Howie of Wharfedale.

There were great runs too from Harriers Oli Murphy in fifth, Steve Gott (14th), Jeff Green (25th and second MV50) and Paul Carman (35th).

The first lady was Ailish Graham of Wharfedale in 53:58, ahead of Emma Clayton of Leeds City in 55:28.

For Ilkley, Rachel Carter was the sixth lady and second LV40, with Jane McCarthy third LV40.

The Brass Monkey Half Marathon is a race that gives runners the chance of a personal best for the 13.1 miles trip given its flat nature.

But rarely can the Harriers have had such a spectacular day on that front.

Pride of place went to Jack Wood, whose third-place finish in a time of one hour, eight minutes and 24 seconds shattered by over two minutes the club's all-time record for the distance, which he had set himself at the same event 12 months previously.

To put that performance into context, it puts him third in the 2020 UK rankings.

And there were two other extraordinary Harriers displays as the rapidly-improving pair of Nick Helliwell and Mike Abrams-Cohen decimated their own personal best marks.

Less than six months ago, neither had yet broken the 1:30 mark for the half marathon yet on Sunday they were at the sharp end of a hugely competitive field.

Helliwell stopped the clock in 1:20:22, with Abrams-Cohen not far behind in 1:22:28.

Those two races dominated the local racing landscape but there were also plenty of notable Parkrun times on Saturday.

Steve Gott was second at Bradford, Robin Nicholson matched that at Horton Park while Catherine Gibbons and Caroline Howe went one better as they were the first ladies at Skipton and Stewart, respectively.
