Sunday 16th June – Hadrian’s Wall Half Marathon MMXIII

Sunday 16th June – Hadrian’s Wall Half Marathon MMXIII

Report from OAC’s Shane Ewen: The Hadrian’s Wall Half Marathon is a mixed terrain half covers an undulating course of approximately 1,000 feet of elevation overall – so it very much fits into the “undulating” category of races. It follows a circular route of country roads, trails and grassy paths close to the Hadrian’s Wall (though rarely in sight of it…).

Sunday 16th June – Staveley Stampede nr. Knaresborough

Report from Sean O’Halloran: I was told about the Staveley Stampede 10km on Friday and after checking out the course, I decided to enter.
