Sunday 10th November – Run Sunday

Sunday 10th November – Run Sunday

The first truly frosty morning saw a beautiful sunrise and, I daresay, a few of the 27 runners scraping ice of their windscreens this morning before they arrived at a chilly, but glorious, Chevin for Run Sunday. Thanks first to our marshals who were Andy Brown (with Hannah and Emmy),David Ellis, Janice Slater (with Dexter), Michelle Smith and Pam Byrom.  Petra Bijsterveld was our tail runner and Jackie Ellis presented her delicious Munch to us again.  Thank you all for…

Sunday 3rd November 2013 – Guy Fawkes 10-Mile

Sean O’Halloran reports from the Guy Fawkes 10-Mile which saw Ian Fisher finish third. Not being 100 per cent sure of what I was letting myself in for I agreed to take a friend’s number for Guy Fawkes 10 as he could no longer take part himself. The weather on the Saturday night did not fill me confidence and I was rather happy to see that the rain had stopped by Sunday morning leaving just the wind to contend with….

Sunday 3rd November – the 54th Derwentwater 10

David Hainsworth took part in the Derwentwater finishing it in 89:27. He said: “If you tire of the Guy Fawkes 10 this is a very scenic alternative in the Lakes and only persistently undulating rather that full on hilly. “My usual (or was it the previous night’s Snecklifter) steady start left me struggling with nine minute miles but a short sharp shower as we approached Grange livened me up a bit and then the sight of Andy Wolfenden, of Ilkley…

Sunday 3rd November – Ullswater Trail 14km Race

Sunday 3rd November – Ullswater Trail 14km Race

Graham Lake reports: A friend of mine suggested we do this season finale to the Lakeland Trails series of races. It’s an interesting race as you start off on the Ullswater steamer which drops you at Howtown and you then run back along the undulating coast of Ullswater to Glenridding. Obviously there’s limited space on each boat, so there were four sailings with 128 in each boat, essentially four different races. We were booked on the 11 o’clock one, which is…
