Saturday 29th June – Clif Bar 10 Peaks

Report from OAC’s indefatigable legend, Sarah Fuller: “Why are you doing this? You’re rubbish, look how many people have overtaken you in the last three miles”, the negative demons started nagging me before the foot of the final climb – the long slog up Skiddaw via Carlside. I had nothing left for this climb, legs were empty and I was moving so slowly I could have grown roots, perhaps more significantly my mental focus had gone. I had a little…

Saturday 29th June – Eldwick Gala Fell Race

Report from OAC’s Matt Broughton: I took part in the Eldwick Gala Fell Race (3 miles / 551′). I ran this last year where the weather was pretty wet and miserable but today, as you’d hope for this time of year, was warm and quite pleasant. Strange but from what I could see, I was the only OAC runner. Amazing really because this is a great local event and very family friendly. A New Orleans style Jazz band played whilst…

Thursday 20th June – Beamsley Beacon Fell Race

Thursday 20th June – Beamsley Beacon Fell Race

Report by the Hon. handicapper A strong contingent of thirteen, I think it was, made the short trip up the valley to Addingham for the Wharfedale Harriers organised race up to Beamsley Beacon. A flagged ‘up’ route saw us get to the summit from the Ilkley side & then it’s a ‘find your own way down, permissive paths only!‘ route choice. If you know the local paths and most there did, there’s an obvious fastest route down through a narrow walled path…
