MATTHEW PIERSON fell short of his hopes of setting a new record mark in the Huddersfield 10k Road Race.

The Holmfirth Harrier was home first in 34min 12sec, ahead of Bridlington’s Phil Taylor, in the Huddersfield Road Runners-organised race from Lockwood Park.

Holmfirth Harriers notched a double as Kath Farquhar was first home in the women’s race in a time of 41-15, over a minute ahead of second-placed Emma Wolff from Penistone Footpath Runners.
