Ilkley's Jack Cummings powered to a second straight win in the 10th renewal of the Burley Moor Run on Saturday.

Cummings followed up last year's victory with a quicker time of 43 minutes and 12 seconds for the 11km course.

That was all the more impressive given the saturated terrain and it gave him a cushion of nearly two minutes over runner-up Robin Howie of Wharfedale Harriers

There were only about 30 seconds between the pair at the highest point of the course but Cummings steadily pulled clear on the descent back to Scalebor.

Four other Harriers made the top 11 - Oli Murphy, Steve Gott, Jon Denniss and Dan McKeown.

Kate Archer was the third lady in 53:35, behind winner Emma Clayton of Leeds City AC and GB international mountain runner Katie Kaars Sijpesteijn of Keswick AC, who she battled most of the way around.

No fewer than 28 Harriers took part on what was a busy weekend for the club.

Remembrance Sunday saw plenty of Ilkley representation at the nearby Run Bolton Abbey which raised £34,500 for Sue Ryder's Manorlands Hospice and care in the local area.

There were half marathon, 10-mile and 10km options on stunning trails around the Estate, featuring some paths and tracks which aren't usually open to the public.

An impeccably-observed two minutes silence preceded the races, and when the action got underway it was blue sky and sunshine up above - and very muddy underfoot.

The rugged hilly nature of all the routes added to the challenge but there were plenty of excellent Harriers performances, with Catherine Gibbons leading home the 10km contingent in 56:55 for 28th place overall while Jane Bryant topped the F50 standings in the 10-miler, with a time of 1:35:14.

But perhaps the standout Harriers display of the week came in the north east, from the rapidly-improving Mike Abrams-Cohen.

He'd bettered his 5km times regularly over the last couple of months and as a result had targeted a 10km race in under 40 minutes for the first time.

Returning to Newcastle Town Moor for the Heaton Memorial 10km where he'd clocked 40:47 last year, Abrams-Cohen shattered the mark in style with a stunning 37:45 to knock more than three minutes off his PB.

Also right to the fore over the 10km distance was Lucy Williamson who took part in the Betws Y Coed trail race on Saturday.

Williamson only had limited time to take in the vistas as she was involved at the sharp end of the race, finishing in fourth place in 43:41 which was just over a minute behind winner Jonathan Tyler and also meant she was the first lady in a field of 183 runners.

In far warmer climes, Fiona Schneider was given an entry in the Athens Marathon by her sons as a 60th birthday present!

The event started in Marathon by the Olympic flame and ended in the Panathenaic Stadium, the route was the same as in 490BC and used at the first modern Olympics in 1896.

On a surprisingly hilly course, she crossed the line in 4:45:57 to spark more celebrations.

And at the other end of the distance spectrum, Tom Adams was the clear-cut winner as he registered a new fastest Bradford parkrun time of 15:49 for the 5km.
