Report from Lizzie Fawcett: Three intrepid runners ran from the River Wharfe at Addingham up Beamsley Beacon on a cold night (minus 4C degrees in the valley). It was worth all the effort though because after we had soon run above the level of the mist, we were treated to the most amazing clear, dark and starry night sky.

Report from OAC’s Reid Haddow: One solitary “Black and White” made his way over to the Red Rose County early Sunday morning to compete in the Longridge 7 Mile Road Race.
