Sunday 20th June – Settle Hills Fell Race

Sunday 20th June – Settle Hills Fell Race

7mls 1750ft Report from Colin Best: A lovely warm dry day so fancied heading out to enter this race. I have done it several times before and always think that this is one of the most scenic of the Yorkshire fell races. I have more time now to take in the views. There seems always to be a surprisingly small entry for this race but was pleased to see Martin to double the Otley contingent. Martin pulled me round the…

Sunday 20th June – The North Downs Run 30km

Sunday 20th June – The North Downs Run 30km

Report from Tony Cunningham: As one of Otley’s southern representatives, I felt duty bound to take part in the North Downs 30km Race yesterday as it is not often us London based people get the chance to do off-road, trail races in the local area. The race has received good reviews from everyone who’s done it before so I was intrigued to see if it would live up to its reputation. It did. Most of the race is off-road through…

Sunday 20th June – Staveley Stampede nr. Knaresborough

Report from Billy Rayner: Competed in Staveley Stampede today, a scenic 10 mile multi-terrain undulating course. Slightly breezy, but the sunshine ensured it was very warm. The turnout was disappointing with only 130 finishers and was won by Nicky McGee (Blackhawkbike.com) in 59.38. I was pleased to finish 64th in a time of 82.32, my second quickest time over 10 miles. It could have been a PB if I hadn’t got caught behind a slower runner on the first off…

Sat 5th – Sun 6th June – Puma 24RUN @ Copenhagen

Report from Adam Baird: I was invited over to Denmark by an old friend to take part in a race at the weekend. As they say, be careful what you wish for – when I agreed to go I didn’t know it was going to be a 24 hour race – gulp. The race took place just outside of Copenhagen starting at noon on Saturday in what can only be described as scorching conditions. The course was a 2.7k lap…
