Spenborough 20, Cleckheaton – Sunday 15th March 2015

2015 Steve Needham at Spenborough2015 Steve Mort at Spenborough2015 Steve Mort and Steve Needham at SpenboroughHarriers’ own dynamic duo Steve Mort and Steve Needham made the short journey over the Pennines last Sunday to take part in the Spenborough 20 mile road race. The start takes in one lap of the track at the Princess Mary Sports Arena before heading out on the road towards the centre of Cleckheaton. It then takes a left and climbs the steep ascent up to the village of Scholes and loops around the tops at Hartshead, Liversedge and Clifton.
The vastly undulating course is very challenging and the pair used the race as part of their build up training runs for the London Marathon next month. Running together for most of the way together with Carmel Sullivan of Wesham Road Runners, the duo managed to get into a good rhythm. At around mile 14 Steve Mort started to slowly pull away.
