Friday 29th-Sunday 31st July: Lakeland 100

Friday 29th-Sunday 31st July: Lakeland 100

Report from Sarah fuller The Lakeland 100 and I have a bit of a love-hate relationship stretching back to 2012 when I did the 50 miler, my first ultra. Since then I’ve tried twice (2013, 2014) to complete the brutal 105 mile, 22,600ft accent course failing both times at the 66 mile point. I’ve lost count of how many times people told me ‘this year was my year’ but my training volume has been less than ideal due to the…

Sunday 31st July – Castle Bolton Trail Race

Sunday 31st July – Castle Bolton Trail Race

Report from Howard Jeffrey: For the last few years I have done the Leeds Grammar triathlon on the weekend of the ‘James Herriot Trail race’ at Castle Bolton but the organisers have given up to concentrate on other events. That meant of course that I could venture again 14K across the high moors in North Yorkshire. I was with Jacque so arrived a bit later than usual so was unable to warm up but I remembered the route was flat…

Saturday 23rd – Sunday 24th July: Cotswold 24 hr run

Saturday 23rd – Sunday 24th July: Cotswold 24 hr run

Report from el presidente: As I get older, I’ve seemed to end up trying to run further, rather than faster. Having run 100K over hilly stuff twice and a few other ultras, I wondered if I could do 100 miles in 24 hrs. Looking for possible races that were not too challenging in the terrain I found the Cotswold 24 hr race and entered it. My family come from round there so accommodation was on hand. I stayed at my…

Sunday 24th July – Great Yorkshire Run 10k

Sunday 24th July – Great Yorkshire Run 10k

Report from Joanna Hobson: This morning I went over to Harrogate for the Great Yorkshire Run 10k. This was a very well organised race by The Great Run Series and whilst it was the 10th anniversary of the Great Yorkshire Run it was the first time it had been held in Harrogate, having recently moved from Sheffield. The course was a (more than expected) challenging, undulating route around Harrogate, mostly on paths off road, and took in the very beautiful…

Saturday 23rd July – Cleveland Half Ironman Triathlon

Saturday 23rd July – Cleveland Half Ironman Triathlon

Report from Howard Jeffrey: My philosophy on running has always been to try and run as fast as I can for as far as I can without having to slow down too much ‘just to do the distance’. That is why I have never done a marathon but have always been happy to do halves as frequently as every fortnight because you don’t need the same recovery time. The trouble is I have got heavier with muscling up a bit…

17th of July Burton Leonard 3K Fun Run

On Sunday the 17th of July Jenson Brogden and Aston Brogden ran the 3K Burton Leonard Fun Run. The course was a tough multi-terrain route which started in the village before going through the local nature reserve and farmers fields. It was a really hot day and there wasn’t much shade on course. Both boys ran well with Jenson Brogden claiming 3rd overall and Aston Brogden going home strong despite a fall in 14th. The boys recognised a few  Ripon…

Thursday 21st July – Danefield Handicap

A perfect evening for running saw a big turnout of 39 runners, including 5 from the beginners group, a couple of the fast juniors and lots of seniors.  Emma and Caroline from the beginners had fantastic runs for this hilly just short of 3 mile route crossing the finish as the first two. Young Harry Bowness was 1st point scorer in 3rd, followed by Louise Penny and club treasurer Ian Broadbent.  It was also good to see a few of…

Tuesday the sweltering of July (19th)

Tuesday the sweltering of July (19th)

Report from Scott Harrington On the hottest day of the year I decided to do the latest vets race over at Crossgates as I thought it would make a nice change from my usual tuesday speed session. Thankfully at registration the sun had dipped behind the clouds so it  made conditions slightly better. The race was 5.5 miles in distance and all off road on open fields and farm tracks (i hate off road!!) As we set off, I started…
