Sunday 24th June – Humber Bridge Half Marathon

Sunday 24th June – Humber Bridge Half Marathon

Report from OAC’s Dave Hainsworth: “After an unusually early start (certainly for Tom and I) and a very wet drive to Hessle, the rain stopped as we gathered for the 9 o’clock start and we ran in near perfect conditions. The course was not as flat as I expected with the ‘steady climb’ between 9 and 10 miles coming as a bit of a surprise but the event is worth a try for the spectacular bridge crossings alone if you’ve…

Sunday 24th June – Chevin 5km

Sunday 24th June – Chevin 5km

Report from OAC’s Colin Best: This was the first running of this informal 5km park run on the Chevin. Starting just below the larger of the carparks on the Danefield side at 10.30am, the route was a two lap course with enough hill to make it quite testing. A good free run if you want a low key workout on the doorstep. First Andy Bedford (Unattached) in 18.46and first lady Steph Wilson (Saltaire Striders) in 21.46. Sixth Colin Best in 24.51, obviously…

Saturday 23rd June – Trail Marathon Wales

Saturday 23rd June – Trail Marathon Wales

Report from OAC’s Matt Podd: I ran the Trail Marathon Wales on Saturday, finishing 91/225 in 4:39:48, 12/29 in MV 50+. This was the first running of this race held in the Coed y Brennin Forest, north of Dolgellau. Quite a big event with tents, music and lots of feed stations – I carried nothing with me. Quite a hard race with over 4,000′ of climbs and some rough trails – a bit like a fell race interrupted by stretches of forest…
