Sunday 14th September – The Yorkshireman

Report from Lisa Maughan:

To say that I was nervous about this race is a bit of an understatement, I was petrified! My hamstring has been niggling me this week, I had only recced the first half of the course and I had never done the distance off road before. I decided to go steady and use it as a training run. I actually felt really good until mile 17, when I crashed badly, but I quickly realised I hadn’t taken on any fuel. Two slices of malt loaf and an energy gel, and after a couple of miles I got my second wind to take me to the finish.

All in all it was a great race, well organised, friendly runners and a lovely route (except for the killer hill at the end!). I was pleasantly surprised with my time too, 5hrs 43 mins, well under my 6 hours target.

Full: 1st Shaun Wilkinson K&C 3:20:37,  1st Lady Charmaine Horsfall 4:01:46,  3rd Edward Davies 3:26:00,  Hugh Pearson 4:46:37,  Matt Podd 4:55:25,   Lisa Maughan 5:43:53.

Half: 1st Ben Mounsey, Calder Valley 1:36:55, 1st Lady Tanya Seager 1:51:28,  Shane Ewen 1:58:37,  John Dade 2:29:17,  David Fox 2:32:50,  Sara Richard 2:48:04,  Julie Dorling 2:53:05.

  1. You guys are machines and mega respect to you all. Massive well done !! This race is going only list for next year.

  2. Well that was a day out in the country. Even though this is the third time I’ve done it – I got lost, luckily I met another runner and we sorted a way back on to the route.Good to have done the distance in a fair time.
    Lisa did really well – Hugh and I saw her finishing. She will have learnt a lot from this – not least that white compression socks are a bad move across the bogs of Calderdale.
    A fine day out, Well done evryone.
    Matt

  3. One to put down to experience. Went off too quick – struggled from mile 8 and ground to a halt at mile 13. Thanks to the Bingley runner – one of many who overtook me and disappeared rapidly into the distance, who suggested I ate something! That worked and I even managed to run up most of the last hill.
    Glad everyone had a great race. As ever fantastic organisation – A race everyone should consider entering at least once in their life. John

  4. Certainly was tough. I died going up Harden Moor but at least I knew the route unlike the bands of runners I saw appearing from all directions as I crossed it. Fuelling was a problem for me but once I’d eaten a few cakes and Gummi Bears I got my second wind and was able to claw back a few places.
    Great day out and Lisa looked fantastic at the end unlike me and Matt.

  5. That was an achievement indeed Lisa , you really ran with a strong consistency. Well done to all the members who took part in this nice race , especially David F. had a good performance in this beautiful course , also Julie D. had a good day too in this Yorkshireman.
