Saturday 17th October: Helwith Bridge Duathlon

Saturday 17th October: Helwith Bridge Duathlon

Report from Graham Lake: I thought I’d have another go at this following last year’s windy event. If you’re not familiar with duathlons, basically they are two running races (in this case about 4 miles each) with a nice bike ride in between where you can relax, eat, drink and look at the beautiful scenery. Unfortunately in this case, no one told all the other competitors; they all thought that was part of the race! Sheesh! Myself and Rogan lined…

Saturday 17th October – British Fell Relays – Pendle Hill

Saturday 17th October – British Fell Relays – Pendle Hill

Report from the Hon. Handicapper: As Pendle is an isolated hill that dominates the local area, there’s plenty of route choices for a four leg relay.  The village of Barley was used as the base for the relay, the first leg starting at the northern end of the village, all of the others in a field just behind the village hall. Another enjoyable relay day was had by all, thanks to Clayton le Moors Harriers for hosting a fantastic day, and…

Sunday 11th October – Yorkshire Marathon

Sunday 11th October – Yorkshire Marathon

Frank Beresford reports: The Yorkshire marathon has been my key race for the autumn and I have spent nearly all of summer preparing for the event. Training went really well up until August where I pretty much lost 3 weeks of training due to tonsillitis, which knocked quite a lot out of me both physically and mentally. But such is life and as soon as I could, I got back to training. As always I enjoyed training for the marathon,…

Sunday 11th October – Richmond Castle 10k

Report from Howard Jeffrey: I entered this race thinking it was er, the Ripley Castle 10k…..no I don’t know either! Brother Mick now thankfully recovering said he was doing it and it then occurred to me that I had in fact entered this one. I checked receipts for entry and sure enough it was Richmond here we come. We picked up the numbers in the market hall … are you twins the nice Lady asked? Yes said Mick quickly, thanks……

Saturday 10th October – Calverley Handicap

Report from substitute handicapper John Dade: A small number made it to Calverley on a beautiful still morning. First home, and 15 points went to Ursula. Colin, having already marked half the course, ran with his dog Monty. A nice run was had by all. John Dade, who was deputising for Andrew, did the timing. Despite an initial panic, thinking he hadn’t recorded the times correctly, the accurate results were retrieved in the pub. Time Handicap Net time Points Ursula…

Saturday 10th October – Langdale Horseshoe Fell Race

Saturday 10th October – Langdale Horseshoe Fell Race

Report from Tom Lynch: The Langdale Horseshoe is a classic Lakeland fell race, a 13 mile/21 km horseshoe route taking in the peaks of Pavey Ark, Bowfell, Crinkle Crags and the Pike O’Blisco via some tough muddy and rocky terrain and 4700 feet/1450 m of climbing. The race is a popular AL fell race that attracts 300 – 400 hundred runners, and apparently will be a championship counter next year.   I’d entered on a whim a couple of months…
