Thursday 5th May – Ilkley Harrogate League

Thursday 5th May – Ilkley Harrogate League

It was a perfect early summers evening for the first race of this year’s Harrogate League series.  Otley had a very strong team out with the  ten to count in the first 23 and a fantastic turnout of 47 runners. Jamil flew round for the win,  followed by Scott about 20 seconds later.  Multiple league winner Ian was next in 8th followed by Robin one behind.   Without doing any of the calculations it looks like we finished a clear…

Saturday 30th April – Monday 2nd May – Great Lakeland Three Day

Report from Tom Pomfrett: The Great Lakeland Three Day is (unsurprisingly) a three day mountain marathon event in the Lake District. It’s a slightly different format to most mountain marathons in that competitors only need to carry basic kit and tents etc. are shipped from camp to camp, the idea being to have a long mountain journey rather than a suffer-fest of difficult navigation. Kirsty and I divided and paired up with a couple of friends with Ali and I…

Sunday 1st May – Keswick Half Marathon

Sunday 1st May – Keswick Half Marathon

Report from Howard Jeffrey: My slippers were stuck together with a couple of half sucked Werthers Originals (you know those ‘sweets’ invented for old people who can’t remember they had never heard of them when they were young) so I had to get out and do a hard half marathon again.

Sunday 1st May – Bluebell Trail Race

Sunday 1st May – Bluebell Trail Race

Report from Sara Elliott: After enjoying the hills in Honley last week, I decided to enter the Bluebell Trail 10 (.3) mile race.

A lovely mix of trails, footpaths, towpaths and roads through an area I didn’t know at all…thankfully with my navigation skills, there were plenty of enthusiastic marshals. A bit of a long…
