WYWL-Race 5

Andy Worster sealed his place as Champion of this year’s West Yorkshire Winter League with a comfortable win over the 5.7-mile Stainland course on Sunday, leaving him with a perfect record of four victories from four outings in the series and being the first Tod Harrier to lift the trophy. Mud and water were very much in evidence round the course, including the infamous “log flume” section near Hollas Bridge which at times felt like battling uphill against an Olympic canoeing course. Among the other Harriers competing, Dave Garner had an excellent run to finish 2nd Vet 50 while Stuart Wolstenholme, Katie Samuelson and Darren Gillman completed the “full house” of all 5 WYWL races.
