Rush Around the Rhubarb results


The second ever Rush around the Rhubarb race was held on a glorious sunny Thursday evening from P&B headquarters at Priesthorpe. Taking in some of the local training lanes and footpaths, 84 intrepid runners set off on the trails in search of the elusive rhubarb in the senior, under 15 and under 11 races.

The seniors were off first, with Pudsey Pacers’ Gary Bailey and Karen Pickles taking the honours and their new titles as “Rhubarb Royalty”. Alan Brydon (Kirkstall Harriers) was 2nd and Tim Bellwood (Saltaire Striders) 3rd in the mens. Local P&B star Becky Coope (P&B U18) was 2nd with Steph Wilson (Saltaire Striders) 3rd in the ladies. Kieran Lazenby, another highly promising young P&B runner, was 1st U18 overall.

Next up were the U15’s with 13 runners taking part. Archie Armitage (P&B) and Charlie Proctor (P&B) took the boys and girls titles, with Mitchell Boocock and Alfie Appleby (P&B) 2nd and 3rd boys and Erin Hinchcliffe (U/A) and Charlotte Davies (P&B) 2nd and 3rd girls.

Last to set off were a lively crowd of 32 rhubarb ready U11’s. A small matter of the Mobot and Bolt impersonations were all that stood between them and their sprint start to the mile long race down the track, round a field and back again, chasing down a slightly nervous looking Adam Cook as their “hare”. George Milner (Wharfedale) was first back in 11:48, with Allanah Mullan (U/A) not far behind in 12:22 to take first girl. Luke Storr (U/A) and Thomas Smith (P&B) were 2nd and 3rd boy and Ruby Smith (U/A) and Neeve Stevenson (P&B) 2nd and 3rd girl.


It was great to see so many runners from local clubs in all age groups taking part on what was a really enjoyable evening’s running. Thanks to them and all our volunteer marshals, timekeepers, sweepers and prize donators for making the event a really enjoyable one.

And… the question everyone is asking – where is this rhubarb?? Well, you will need to come and do the race next year to find out!

Thanks everyone and hope to see you again next year.
