Sunday 14th June: rosedale marathon

Sunday 14th June: rosedale marathon

Report from matt podd Went out and did this today, I drove over with a 5.30 alarm call and Sara R and Gilly (Up & Running) had camped. This is in the Hardmoors series of races – very well organised by John and Shirley; with this one starting from Hutton Le Hole and running round the North York Moors for a bit. Though billed as a marathon, it actually creeps into ultra territory at 27.5ish miles. Over 90% off road…

Saturday 13th June: weets fell race

Report from Liam Dunne: Due to other commitments in life my training since London marathon has consisted of a couple of easy runs. Did I miss regular training? No! It’s been nice to have a break from it and get back to sinking pints and a bit of socialising. The ‘Sam Stell Stag-do Team’ are heading up to the dales next Sat for the Buckden Pike fell race. I’m confident I can stay with the best of them in the…

Thursday 11th June:kettlewell anniversary fell race

Report from Sean: On Thursday evening Andrew, Caron, Carmen (from Dragons) and I traveled to Kettlewell to take part in the Kettlewell Fell Race. This was my third race in eight days and the second in five days for Carmen so having fun was the ultimate aim. Rechristened for 2015, the Kettlewell Anniversary is challenging, yet not too far or over difficult terrain. With 5 miles and about1800ft of climb, the going was generally on tracks but mostly over grass…

Thursday 11th June: Bronte 5 mile road race

Thursday 11th June: Bronte 5 mile road race

Report from mark hall: The race is a 2 lap event. It starts in Haworth and skirts Penistone hill, which means it is not flat! The race starts with a mile and half of uphill with the final 200m 1in 6, a short downhill and a flat section then start the 2nd lap and onto the hill again. If you are looking for a PB this is not your event. There were 142 finishers, I finished 4th and 1st V55…

Wednesday 10th June – Otley 10

Wednesday 10th June – Otley 10

Report from Graham Lake: I really enjoyed the Otley 10 on Wednesday night. My mantra this year is to only race off-road, but I fancied a bit of a change, and being a hilly course knew I’d enjoy it. It was 4 years since my last attempt at this, before I joined Otley AC, so no pressure of a particular time meant I could just relax into it and see how it went. A big field left the new estate…
