ILKLEY'S Tom Adams delivered another masterclass of fell running as he blitzed the field at Blackstone Edge last week.

Covering 5.6km and no less than 366 metres of climbing, Adams put distance between himself and the rest of the field, including eight-time winner Danny Hope, heading up to the trig point at Blackstone Edge.

The race was over as a contest by then, and Adams powered back down to cross the line more than two minutes ahead of second-placed Edward Corden in a time of 28:47.

The Harriers were also represented by Forrest Hamilton (32nd in 36.05) and his father Rob (126th in 46.36).

Even more dominant than Adams was Jack Cummings' victory in the Harewood 10k trail race on Sunday.

The Harriers' speedster covered the multi-terrain course in a stunning 34:49 to win by more than five minutes.

And he wasn't the only Ilkley prize winner - Georgia Weston was the leading junior female, Jane Bryant topped the F50 standings, and Anna Nolan was second in the F40 category.

There were also plenty of Ilkley runners taking part in the Fairfield Horseshoe Fell Race in the Lakes on Saturday.

The 14.5km loop included an eyewatering 914m of elevation and was notable for a new best time of 1:14:45 by Jacob Atkin of Keswick AC, which chopped 26 seconds off the previous mark set 21 years ago by Mark Roberts.

Brennan Townshend, also of Keswick, was second in 1:19:47 and Pudsey & Bramley's Joe Baxter third in 1:21:01.

The Harriers were led home by Dan Dry in an impressive seventh place (1:23:38), with Oli Murphy 13th (1:26:53).

The women's winner was Sarah McCormack of Ambleside AC in 1:33:35, and there were outstanding displays from Ilkley's Kate Archer (1:48:34) and Rachel Carter (1:56:05), who were second and third respectively in the V40 standings.

Dropping down in distance to 5km, the latest EvenSplits event took place in York on Friday.

Fortunately, the wet and windy conditions had subsided substantially by the time the first socially-distanced eight runners took their positions on the start line and after all the waves had completed, youngsters Harry Stead (18:13) and Archie Budding (19:27) were the quickest Harriers.

Towards the other end of the age spectrum, there was a fine display too from Geoffrey Howard, with his time of 22.16 not surprisingly putting him in a first place in the V75 category.

The victory for both Harriers runners, comes after Ilkley landed the Lockdown League title, where the series saw over 30 clubs from across Yorkshire and beyond, compete virtually across a range of distances and challenges during February and March.

And it was the Harriers, with 25 runners taking part over the eight weeks, who were crowned champions. Kate Archer, with a perfect score of 500 points, and Sally Armitage (499) dominated the ladies standings.
