Sunday 28th February – Bolton Abbey 10k Trail Race

Sunday 28th February – Bolton Abbey 10k Trail Race

Report from Stephen Boddy: The inaugural (and unofficial) Bolton Abbey Duathlon comprised of a cycle ride from Otley to Bolton Abbey, a 10k run and a cycle ride back to O-Town. The ride started from right outside my garden (what are the chances!?). As the peloton snaked out towards Burley I soon found myself in the lead group which contained me and my mate Macca. We decided to share the work load and push on hard. We stayed out on…

Sunday 28th February – Harewood Half Marathon

Sunday 28th February – Harewood Half Marathon

Report from Howard Jeffrey: The trouble with looking at a route on a flat screen, or piece of paper, is that you can see whether it twists and turns, like a twisty turny thing which this route did but not if it ups and downs, like an up and downy thing which this one also did, in spades. The route was described as ‘challenging’ and having done the Harewood 10 many times, I thought I knew what I was in…

Report from Sean O’Halloran: On Saturday I travelled down the M1 to Donnington Park for the Saucony English National Cross Country Championship Race. This race was to be my 12th and final cross country race of the 2015/2016 season. This was by far the biggest race, in terms of club only runners, I have ever done and what a spectacle it was. Arrived nice and early and took in the atmosphere. We met up with my office buddy Chris Miller…

Sunday 21st February – Ilkley Moor Fell Race

Sunday 21st February – Ilkley Moor Fell Race

Tom Lynch writes: This race report could just consist of the word “WINDY”, but I will try and elaborate. The race was a sell out a few days before, and there were no entries on the day, however the starting/finishing field was well down on this with about 80 people missing from the start line – the weather may have had something to do with this with almost strong winds and some drizzle prior to the start, thankfully the rain…

I can remember winning the team prize on several occasions with Julian and Ian, how things change. Today, I think there was only me and Tom, sorry if I missed anyone. However, like Brass Monkey, if you…
