Friday 31st July: Clun canter

Friday 31st July: Clun canter

report from andy Webster: Nothing like experiencing a local race while you are on holiday. The Clun Canter was 5.2 miles long. The route map was out but no mention of the climb! From last years results it appeared like 50 minutes would get me a reasonable place. 79 of us started at 7.30 PM. A rather pleasant 1/4 mile sprint was quickly followed by an 800 foot climb, over about 1.5 miles followed by a brief descent and a…

Sunday 26th July: Saltaire Shaker

Report from Zack: After a six week layoff Local legend Scott Harrington finished 2nd in his first race back at the Saltair Shaker 15k, we’re not sure who won but he must of been an Olympian to hold off Scott’s blistering pace at the end, after we dropped him in the woods around half way and I though he gave up I was shocked and surprised to see him reappear with 2 miles to go. I came in a few…

Sunday 26th July: Leeds Grammar Sprint Triathlon

Sunday 26th July: Leeds Grammar Sprint Triathlon

Report from Howard: I don’t normally report on the local sprint triathlons but I am going to make an exception in this case. (Why? You ask). Well I was using it as a fitness tester after the disastrous race in Geneva a couple of weeks ago. I had not shifted the cough and the Doc ( not a head Doctor but maybe should have been!) suggested rather than more antibiotics I go for an X ray. Yes I said but…

Saturday 25th July: Marmot 24 mountain marathon

Saturday 25th July: Marmot 24 mountain marathon

Report from sarah fuller: The marmot is a relatively new arrival on the mountain marathon scene with this year being only the second running of the event. There is 12 hour or 24 hour score courses on offer. All the checkpoints are worth 10 points so the strategy is a little different to usual score events (where you have different checkpoints worth different values) so route planning was tough. This years event was in the lowther hills in the southern…

Wednesday 22nd July: golden acre relays

Report from graham lake: There were a number of teams in action. Results here: Golden Acre Relay 2017 I teamed up with Shane and our friend Colin of Hyde Park Harriers for this fast and furious relay. We had a great battle with Chapel Allerton, each leg within a few seconds of each other. It was perfect running weather, dry, sunny but cool, the only issue being the low sun through the trees making spotting the tree roots tricky. Some…
