Bronte 5 Mile Road Race 2024

Road race number 5 of the 2024 GP saw 26 Tod Harriers taking on the deceptively tough 5 miles and 2 laps of Penistone Country Park in Haworth.  The “big hill” on the 2nd lap is a bit like running into a brick wall after a very fast decent and flat section.

Not that the hills bothered the mighty Toddies who took several prizes.  Starting with the ladies, Rebecca Howell finished as 1st lady in 27th overall and not far behind Emma Kerwin as 3rd lady and 42nd.  Rebecca and Emma plus Mel Blackhurst won the ladies team prize.

The men also claimed the men’s team prize with Ben Blosse in 6th, Joe Daley 9th and Will Tyson 12th.
