Sunday 13th September – Yorkshireman

Sunday 13th September – Yorkshireman

Report from John Dade: Congratulations to all the competitors in the Yorkshireman half and full marathons at Haworth on Sunday. The previous day’s rain added to the mud but as ever a spectacular tough route in rugged country. There were some great runs from Otley AC. Edward Davies was 2nd in the marathon – fantastic effort, one day he’s got to win this one. In the half marathon (14.8 miles) Laura Clark was 46th, and 4th lady, Stephen Boddy 102nd,…

Sunday 13th September – Hull Marathon

Report from El Presidenti, Mr Podd: On a warm, still September Sunday I got up early and drove to Hull to run in the Marathon. Arrived nice and early and had a steady warm up, meeting my mate Paul at the start. So off we went out east, both saying that we’d started off too fast. After about 8 miles Paul got ahead and was gone, I trudged on and slowed down through a rough patch, however things improved and…

Report from Liam Dunne: I took part in the World Masters Mountain Running Champs for the first time this year.

This was held in Betws-Y-Coed, Wales and was the start of a week long festival incorporating not just the masters but also the World…

Sunday 6th September: Middlesborough Tees Pride 10k

Report from Jamil Zack, Nicky and I decided to venture up to the north east for this well attended 10k. The course is slightly undulating but with the potential to run a fast time. Zack and I both recorded our fastest 10k times of the year, indeed for Zack it was his 2nd fastest time ever over the distance. Nicky ran well too as she prepares for her first half marathon in two weeks. The event was certainly a jolly…

Sunday 6th September: wetherby 10k

Report from Andy Webster: Probably best I preentered this race as was feeling particularly tired after only 2 hours sleep following a busy night shift in LGI.

The winner was Mike Burrett Leeds City 31:55 I finished 160 in chip time of 46:22…

Sunday 6th September: Hatters half marathon

Sunday 6th September: Hatters half marathon

Report from Ian Broadbent: I ran the Hatters Half Marathon today that started and finished at Stockport County FC. Initially a bit disappointed with 1:47:50 128/335 but didn’t particularly train for a half and it was on trails, muddy in places and often single file. However it was a pleasant run on the trans pennine trail mainly along the Mersey, I’d definitely say not a PB course. Well marshalled and good facilities at the start and finish, a little disappointed…
