Sunday 13th December – Leeds 10k Christmas Challenge

Report from Howard Jeffery: I had to rest my hamstring for another week after quite a solid Roundhay park run. Did the usual routine of stretching and massage and by Friday was fairly limber again.

Sunday 6th December – Frostbite (35) 30

Report from Matt Podd: Well it was a dark and stormy early morning when the presidential limousine picked up Shane E and Jimmy S to go to Pateley Bridge for the Frostbite 30.
