Sunday 26th April – ETU Standard duathlon championships

Report from Howard Jeffrey: The rain in Spain falls mainly on the ETU Standard duathlon championships!! I watched the sprint distance in the morning when the weather was not too bad. The road was wet which made the white paint on the crossings treacherous and I saw many a heavy fall as the wheels just zipped out from under people. Note to self: ride between the white bits. The sprint completed, the forecast thunderstorm and winds came on with a…

Sunday 26th April – London Marathon

Report from Ian Broadbent: I had hoped for a 3:45-4hrs but woke up on the Saturday full of cold. So I set off at a relaxed pace and pretty much kept going at that pace all the way round (obviously a lesson to be learned there) and finished in 4 hrs 14 mins, I was feeling so fit at the end I managed to carry my little one back 3 miles to the hotel on my shoulders.  The crowds were once again…

Saturday 25th April – 3 Peaks Fell Race

Report from the President: It’s normal that the Three Peaks happens in nice weather, but this year was an exception. Cold, windy and rain all the way – except for on top of Ingleborough were it was snowing – not many in just vest and shorts! Good conditions for running, though it was a bit churned up for us at the back. Great support round the course, even though the weather was foul. Results from the 61st 3 Peaks Fell Race,…

Thursday 23rd April – Fewston Handicap

I’m sure Mick won’t mind me saying this, but his win was probably more down to the handicapping, (on the night), than his fantastic running.   Although saying that he did have a good run to come finish a clear winner ahead of Garry and young James.  Scott recorded the fastest time on the night a second over 22 minutes.  Top of the table after the fourth race of the series is John Armitstead 73pts, followed by Steve Robinson 72 and Gemma…
