ILKLEY Harriers' duo Tom Adams and Jemima Elgood will represent England this weekend at the Senior Home International Mountain Race in Llanberis, Wales.

The competition between the home countries will also feature as the trial for the GB team at the World Mountain Running Championships in Argentina.

Adams earned his place by winning the England trial race at Pendleton after some time out with injury. He last ran for England at the Snowdon International Mountain Race in 2017, when he came third.

And Elgood made her senior debut at Snowdon this year, where she finished 11th. She’s also clocked an impressive 35:33 10km on the road this season (at Salford, an all-time Harriers record).

On a busy weekend of racing just gone, there were stellar performances from several Harriers at Sunday’s Ilkley Triathlon.

Dominic Coy dominated the event, winning by nearly four minutes - with brother Nathan making it a family one-two.

Also in the top 10 was Jeff Green (out of over 300 who took part) - and he was also second in the M50 age category.

On the pure running front, Cam Reilly blitzed the field at the Asda Bury 10km with a superb time of 32 minutes and 36 seconds.

He was nearly two full minutes ahead of second-placed Oliver Donnelly (Bury Athletic Club) in a field of 1,606 runners.

Also in the North West, Ilkley’s men were 54th in the Northern Road Relays at Sportcity in Manchester on Sunday.

Jack Wood, who won the Chester Parkrun the day before in 16:03, gave them a flying start when making the top 20 on the first leg thanks to a time of 20:40 for the 6.8km route.

And he was followed by Steven Gott (41st on leg two), Jaysson Sawyer (60th), Steve Murray (67th) Istvan Jacso (58th) and Matthew Cox (54th).

The same day, five Harriers headed east for the Vale of York Half Marathon.

Nick Helliwell led them home as he smashed his personal best for the distance with a time of one hour, 28 minutes and 19 seconds, all the more impressive given the swirling wind around sections of the exposed course.

Off-road, Rachel Carter was the first lady at Sunday’s Embsay fell race and Jack Cummings was third overall.

Undulating fields at the start were followed by the climb to the crag, and then it was a quick run across the heathery moor top before a fast-paced descent.

Cummings stopped the clock in 19:04, with Carter at 24:42.

Mixed terrain - indeed mountainous in parts - was the order of the day at the Lake District Mountain Trial, an annual orienteering contest which this year started in Langdale.

Steve Turland took on the extended Classic route, covering around 22 miles with 8,000 feet of climbing.

Competitors constantly had to choose the best lines between checkpoints, weighing up elevation, distance and underfoot conditions - from the rocky contours of the Crinkles and Bowfell to the endless tussocks west of Scafell.

Turland crossed the line in 35th place, in six hours and 24 minutes.

Last but not least, Jim Ryder was an excellent sixth at the Hodder Valley Show fell race at Newton-in-Bowland.
