Race Report by Jo Daniels

Todmorden Harriers were represented in force at the Calderdale Way Relay event on Sunday – the popular event is a six leg relay event run in pairs, which covers 50 miles of the Calderdale way. Todmorden fielded two teams in the Senior team, one Senior Ladies team, one in the Vet category and one in the Open category. The weather treated the runners kindly with the going fair underfoot, and there were strong performances from Toddies on individual legs leading to positive results in the overall competitions. Todmorden Ladies had a fantastic race, finishing 3rd Ladies team, 52nd position overall in a combined time of 8.17.47 (the winning ladies team was Holmfirth). The Men’s A Team finished the course in 7th place with a combined time of 6.29.29 (overall race winners were Calder Valley). The Men’s B Team finished slightly further down the field in 36th place with a combined time of 7.53.27. The All Stars Mixed Team completed proceedings for Todmorden, coming home in 74th position in a time of 9.23.10. Pictured are new recruits Darren Shackleton and Mark Rochester, drafted in at the last minute to run leg 5 for the Men’s A Team.
