Sunday 8th March – Harewood 10k

Sunday 8th March – Harewood 10k

Report from Frank Beresford: I decided to enter the harewood 10k and us it as a tempo training run for my London marathon training. The race was well organised apart from a late start which is never ideal. The course took the participants round the pleasant yet undulating footpaths that surround Harewood house. I came to the race with relatively tiered legs from marathon training but looking forward to 10km trail race. The race started at a reasonable pace and…

Saturday 7th March – Flower Scar Fell Race

Saturday 7th March – Flower Scar Fell Race

Report from Sean O’Halloran: Both myself and an established fell running work colleague put ourselves onto the waiting list for this race due to it being full when we tried to enter. Fortunately, due to people dropping out we were eventually offered places. The Flower Scar Fell Race was a counter in the 2015 FRA English Championship and also acted as the 2015 Yorkshire Championship for seniors and u23′s.

Sunday March 1st: Peco X country

Sunday March 1st: Peco X country

Report from Graham Lake: 3 of us guested in the Peco Cross-Country at Roundhay on Sunday. In very windy but sunny conditions 608 (!!) runners took in the rather nice course round the park. Not really a cross-country feel, more a trail race, hardly any mud! I was pleased with my position finishing 54th in 29.01 tantalisingly close to John Greenwell, 51st in 28.57, with Frank having a cracking run in the blue vest of Roundhay Runners, 3rd in 25.37….

February Runner of the Month

February Runner of the Month

February was a busy month and saw plenty of Juniors doing park runs, fell and track events, showing off the Black and Whites! Particularly strong turnout for the Ilkley fell race and also, much further afield, at the track meet in Sheffield. So, this month the prizes go to Will O’ Neill and Imogen Webster, who turned out for the both of those big events. Imogen also did two 5k park runs at Leeds. That’s a lot of running.

Sunday 1st March – Roundhay Junior Park Run

Sunday 1st March – Roundhay Junior Park Run

Report from Gail: Aston Brogden took part in the Roundhay Junior Park Run yesterday. Despite very windy conditions he finished well in 6th place out of 72 runners. His time of 9.54 wasn’t a PB but it was his fastest time on the Winter Course. Anyone who does this Junior Park Run should note that the run goes back to the Summer Course on Sunday 15th of March.
