Rush Around the Rhubarb 2017 Results

Well done to our overall winners, Ash Wall and Ciaran Forde, both of Horsforth Harriers.


We seem to have picked the perfect weather week of June, when it gets cold and drizzly and a bit on the miserable side, but that doesn’t seem to put anyone off or dampen the atmosphere of the race.

Last year the Rhubarb Race took us slightly by surprise, proving a bit more popular than we had expected. Therefore, this year the preparations were more thorough – We were ready for more runners, cows, horses, slippery stiles and rain.

We achieved a record turn out again and would like to thank the 227 runners for making it an enjoyable and successful evening.

Senior Race:

Horsforth’s Ciaran Forde and Wharfedale’s Sophie Martin returned to defend their Rhubarb Crowns. Both the men’s and women’s races were closely fought, with Ciaran claiming the win, finishing in 20:55, ten seconds ahead of Wharfedale’s Nathan Martin, followed by Matt Livesey of Pudsey Pacers in 3rd.

In the ladies race, Sophie finished 2nd, with Ash Wall taking the Rhubarb Queen title and setting a new record of 23:26 and both ladies finished in the top 10 overall. 3rd place lady was Naomi Armitage from Rotherham.

The VETs winners saw Paul Gidlow (Horsfoth Harriers) win MV40 for the 3rd year in a row. Emma Lavelle-Wood (Kirkstall Harriers) took LV40 glory for the 2nd time. The winners in the V50s were John Calvert (Dewsbury) and Lisa Heath (Pudsey Pacers), also a previous winner. V60s were won by Rob Myers (Baildon) and Debbie Bland (Eccleshill) and the MV70 winner was Pudsey legend Peter Covey (Pudsey Pacers).

The junior races saw the P&B younsters out in force. It was also good to see a few more juniors from other clubs out racing and challenging for the top spot.

Under 15s:

In the U15 race the was a fierce battle between Max Metcalfe (Rothwell Harriers) and P&B’s Declan Walker. Both finished with the same time, setting a new Under 15 Course Record, but Max just pushed ahead for victory on the day. First for the girls was P&B’s Emily Kite, who was only 4 seconds off the Course Record.

Under 11s:

The U11 race was won by Aston Brogden (Otley AC), setting a new Course Record, and Maisy Bellwood of Keighley & Craven was 2nd overall and 1st girl, beating her own Course Record from last year.
