Sunday 12th July – Leeds 10k

Sunday 12th July – Leeds 10k

Report from Jamil Parapia: With summer holidays on the horizon and a chance to relax, the Run For All Leeds 10k represents (for teachers) a well timed race to finish the year. Zack, Nicky Lee and I decided to enter again with the prime goal of lowering our times from last year. Club handicap champion Nicky has been training really well and has made excellent progress over the past 12 months as the running bug has well and truly got…

Monday 6th July – LASANTA MINI-DUATHLON

Monday 6th July – LASANTA MINI-DUATHLON

Report from Phil Robinson: Most of the races I do these days seem like exercises in history. This low-key event in Lanzarote involves a 2.5k run, approx 15k bike leg including 5k climb up to Tinajo, then back to the stadium for repeat 2.5k run. From first visiting ClubLaSanta in 1998 I’ve done it 16 times solo plus twice as part of a team of two. My previous solo times as follows: 58.27, 56.14, 55.49, 57.16, 56.41, 57.39, 56.13, 56.54,…

Tuesday 7th July – Harrogate League Otley Handicap

Report by the Hon. Handicapper (but not for this one!) A big thanks to all involved in helping Otley AC host the final Harrogate League race for this year.  In particular race organiser Colin Best, Laura Hind and her catering crew for a fantastic buffet & timekeepers & recorders at the hectic finish.  There were a couple of little issues on the night, but in general everything else seemed to go pretty well and it should be noted that this was the first time we’ve…

Thursday 2nd July – Murder Mile

Thursday 2nd July – Murder Mile

Jenson and Aston braved the BOFRA Murder Mile race and did really well. The race involved Seniors and Juniors running together. The uphill mile race is a tough race, but a great race to be part of. There are no results available yet but the race was won by the very talented Tom Adams who cruised to the finish in style!

Sunday 5th July: Eccup 10

Sunday 5th July: Eccup 10

Report from Howard: The Eccup 10 is a popular race even though usually blistering hot and quite undulating. This year they said a couple of hills had been omitted so it would be easier…yeh right! Overcast today so not the usual heat beating back off the tarmac, still warm in places especially round the reservoir but some shady bits after that. Today I wanted to have a steady push and hoped to do around 70 minutes. Probably overdid the bike…
