Tuesday 5th April – Bunny Run 2

Tuesday 5th April – Bunny Run 2

Report from Andrew Robertshaw: First the excuses… I left my ‘eyes‘ in Silsden & keys to the house in my car, & travelling in Caron’s car it was glasses or semi blindness, at least I had some studs to grip on the slippy muddy descents, not so unfortunately for Liam, of course without these excuses Otley would have had a 1,2 finish but hey ho 🙂 Bunny runs are laps rounds Penistone Country park, Haworth, a short fast, flattish, ‘egg stage‘…

Sunday April 3rd – Baildon Boundary Way – 13.4 miles

Sunday April 3rd – Baildon Boundary Way – 13.4 miles

Report from millenarian Phil Robinson: I last did this one in 1996, so it was about time for a re-visit. The start is well down the hill below the rugby club, so it’s a net uphill course. The first climb through the Esholt woods was very familiar from last week’s Guiseley Gallop. Then a long fairly flat section, joining the canal at Apperley Bridge. Owing to footpath restoration along the south side of the canal we had an extra hill…

Sunday 3rd April – British Duathlon Championships Windsor

Sunday 3rd April – British Duathlon Championships Windsor

Report from Howard Jeffrey: This race was the last qualifier for the world championships in Aviles in June and I had entered just in case I had failed at the others. The pressure was off because I had made it already and it was a question of whether it was worth the return trip to Windsor. Too right it was worth the trip, quash those negative thoughts, see who the best in the UK are and how far have I to…
