Monday 31st August – Glendale Fell Show Race

Monday 31st August – Glendale Fell Show Race

Colin Best update from up North: This was a small (very small) fell race of about 5 miles 900ft climb from Glendale Show Wooler. With only 22 entrants I knew it was to be a lonely run.There was a downhill start and by the time the climb started I was already near the back. Once the climb started I did manage to overtake one lady and near the top passed the only competitor older than me.On the descent though my…

Sunday 30th August – Halifax Marathon

Sunday 30th August – Halifax Marathon

Report from Tom Lynch: The Halifax Marathon is a fairly small local half and full marathon event with a hilly course consisting of a half marathon lap completed twice for the marathon runners. Due to a course change this year to a full road course rather than mixed terrain and some last minute tweaks to the route there was no published profile, but my watch and Strava suggest the total ascent was somewhere between 850 – 950 meters. It was…

Saturday 29th August- Malham Show Fell Race

Saturday 29th August- Malham Show Fell Race

Shane Ewen reports: Run as part of Malham Show, this is a classic BOFRA out-and-back fell race, over grassy terrain, with a great stream crossing, approx 2.5 miles in distance. The race was win by Ted Mason (Wharfedale). I finished 19th in just under 22 minutes. It’s a great race as is the show in general – the egg throwing is a particular highlight.

Friday 28th August – Eyemouth 5k Twilight Run

Friday 28th August – Eyemouth 5k Twilight Run

Report from Colin Best: Up here in Northumberland thought I would join my Tweed Striders colleagues and risk a visit north of the border. I’m not a great fan of 5km, (take to long to get going these days) but thought I would give a go. A very pleasant sunny evening greeted the start on the sea front before running alongside the harbour. Uphill from here for the next 2km, Otley training coming in useful as managed to pass quite…

Wednesday 26th August – Sessay Swift 6k

Wednesday 26th August – Sessay Swift 6k

Report from Ian Broadbent: I did the sessay swift 6k on Wednesday night, a lovely evening on a flat all road course around the village of Sessay near Thirsk, well organised by Thirsk and Sowerby. I managed a steady 26:54 and 64/155. Now I’ve never run a 6k race before so does that count as a PB? Well marshalled and good facilities, parking etc at Sessay cricket club.  I think if they could add about a mile on to this…

Sunday 16th August – Escrick 10k

Sunday 16th August – Escrick 10k

Report from Howard Jeffrey: I like to do the Escrick 10k each year as it is fairly local to me and there are not too many races mid August. The race is well supported by clubs from East Yorkshire, I guess they like it flat! It is quite a popular race and is flat but a bit convoluted through woods and on trails. Thankfully they were dry in the main. There was talk of it being slightly long and the…
