Sunday 21st April – Lake Annecy Marathon (Fra)

Sunday 21st April – Lake Annecy Marathon (Fra)

Report from Richard Smith Greetings from Lausanne, Switzerland. A friend and I travelled over to Geneva to take part in the Lake Annecy Marathon, located in the French Alps. My last month of training has been scuppered with an ongoing knee injury so my expectations weren’t high. All hopes were based on a trusty knee support and a bit of good old fashioned Yorkshire grit. The two days leading up to Sunday were eventful. Upon arriving in Annecy on Saturday…

Saturday 20th April – Over The Odda 10k

Report from OAC’s Matt Podd: Lovely weather for the first running of this local 10km from Hawksworth School. A hard race with a lot of hill – I’ve done easier fell races. Four brave black and white heroes met up at the start and off we went down hill to deep mud (one bloke’s shoe did a George Michael), back up hill, passing the start again. More down hill followed to the back of High Royds then back up through…

Sunday 14th April – Vienna Half Marathon (Aut)

Report from Mick Jeffrey: Following a relatively poor run at the Lisbon Half last March due to unseasonably hot weather, I decided, with Howard, to do another foreign half this year. We decided to enter the Vienna Half because as any geographer knows, central continental Europe is cooler in the spring than further South. The weather forecast 10 days ago was 0C and snow flurries. Perfect! Even better Howard’s training was being adversely affected by a persistent calf injury and…
