Nearly 100 runners gathered for the hilly Netherthong 10K on Sunday. Michael Hyde (Stadium Runners) and Steven Eastwood (Wakefield Harriers) had built up a small lead by the first of the climbs. They were chased by Holmfirth Harrier Bill Stewart, better known for his expolits on the fells than the road and host of athletes from Stainland Lions and Stadium Runners. As they reached the high point of the course it was Hyde who had pulled clear of his younger rival, he went on to win in 37 mins 14 secs, and Eastwood held of Stewart for second. In the Ladies race Julie Field (Stainland Lions) repeated her win of 2011, getting the better of locals Lorainne Smith (Holmfirth Harriers) and Micky Brown (Holmfirth Harriers).
