Tuesday 30th August – Kilnsey Crag Race

Tuesday 30th August – Kilnsey Crag Race

Report from Tom Lynch: A short sharp country show fell race of the type that abound at this time of year, just over amile and 350 feet of climbing (or 1.66 km and 110 meters), a stream, a wall climb, a fence climb, then a death defying descent (with safety rope) down a limestone nick called ‘The Chimney’. Not to mention a fairly unusual feature for a fell race, a large crowd of non-runners and an arena start/finish, with the…

Saturday 20th August – Pendle 3 Peaks

Saturday 20th August – Pendle 3 Peaks

Report from Tom Lynch: The Pendle 3 Peaks race is a 16 km (9.8 mile) fell race with 870 m (2800 ft) ascent, based around the last part of the Tour of Pendle. The race was an English Championship counter this year, so had a strong field, and sold out in January or something silly.  The race consisted of a series of climbs up the different sides of Pendle, and as was pointed out to me actually looks more like…

Sunday 21st August – Escrick 10k

The Howard Jeffrey weekly update: Nearly every year I like to do the Escrick 10k which is an off-road trail race through Escrick park and woods which is just SE of York so fairly flat and local. Yesterday it was very warm with a bit of a breeze as I lined up near the front with another 580 runners. Also the only Otley AC member as the other person from Otley either could not come, did not finish or was…

Saturday 20th August – An afternoon at Burnsall Feast

Saturday 20th August – An afternoon at Burnsall Feast

Report from Matt Podd: The weather was much better than predicted and a fair few black and whites converged on Burnsall for the sports. I arrived in time to see the finish of the 10 mile Road race, with Steve leading in Andy, Billy, Tom, Rob and Antonio  (great effort from the main man: How many times have you run this Antonio?) – sorry if I missed any one – results to follow. So a nervous wait before the main…

Tuesday 16th August – The Liz Fawcett Leathley Handicap

Tuesday 16th August – The Liz Fawcett Leathley Handicap

Setting off first David maintained his lead all the way to the finish. Ian Broadbent was just over 40 seconds behind in second and a similar time ahead of the Scott who recorded the fastest time of the night, just 25 seconds off Ian’s course record.  It was good to see a World Champion supporting her mother. The 19 points for winning moved David to the top of the Eric Smith handicap table on 89, one points ahead of Tom Pomfrett,…

Sunday 14th August – Liverpool Triathlon

Sunday 14th August – Liverpool Triathlon

Report from Howard Jeffrey: Liverpool triathlon was a qualifier for the European standard triathlon championships in Kitzbuhl, Austria next year so I had entered a long time ago. The sprint distances are usually at the same venue but for some reason (money making?) next year the sprint is in Dusseldorf and I have already made the cut for that one. Sunday’s race was also the British championships so there were many more in my age group than usual so I…

Saturday 13th August – Littondale Fete

Saturday 13th August – Littondale Fete

Report from Caron Ralph: Andrew and I decided to introduce my visiting kiwi mother to a traditional Yorkshire county fete (with an ulterior motive being a 4 mile road race and a fell race)  Off we set through the beautiful countryside to Arncliffe.  Only a tiny place but with a lovely vibe. I had intended to do both and I’m sure Andrew did too but as we got out of the car we both said we couldn’t be bothered doing…
