Sunday 11th August – Hardmoors Saltburn Trail Half Marathon

Report from OAC’s Graham Lake: I’d had my eye (more of which later) on this trail series set in and around the North Yorkshire Moors for a while and as this race started from my home town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea it seemed rude not to give it a go.

Saturday 10th August – World Age Group Duathlon Championships in Ottawa (Can)

report from OAC’s Howard Jeffrey: I travelled 15 hours on Thursday to get to Ottawa Canada for the World Age Group Duathlon Championships on Saturday morning. Not the best race preparation.

I was not affected by jet lag as I have a weird routine of sleep at…
