Sunday 30th october: Wistow 10k

Sunday 30th october: Wistow 10k

Report from Howard: I had hoped to finish this flat 10k in perfect (no wind here for once) conditions at least in my target time of 42.30. I set off at the right pace and went through 5k in 21.20. Felt OK but not great and felt like I was working hard to maintain the pace. Dave Womersley, who I had beaten last week, had again gone off like the clappers and I expected to haul him back in before…

Sunday 30th October: Bradford 5K

Sunday 30th October: Bradford 5K

Report from Stephen Boddy: I entered the Bradford 5k as I thought it was well placed a week before the Abbey Dash and I like supporting Bradford races. Robin entered the Half Marathon which I thought would work well as he wouldn’t have too long to wait around for me for once. The race was well timed with the clocks going back which meant I got an extra hour in bed which meant my youngest was up from bloody 5am…

Sunday 30th October: Bradford half marathon

Sunday 30th October: Bradford half marathon

Report from Ian Broadbent: I did the Bradford half today, I had originally booked 5 half marathons for the Autumn but due to injury had missed three so was determined to do this one. Its a bit of a marmite run this one really although you never know what to expect as this was the third different route in four years. On the positive side its an early start at 9.40am meaning I could get back to put a shift…

Sunday 30th October – Race 2 West Yorks. Cross Country League, Nunroyd Park

Sunday 30th October – Race 2 West Yorks. Cross Country League, Nunroyd Park

Report from the Hon. Handicapper; Warm, for late October, mostly very dry underfoot conditions made it fast going at Nunroyd Park.  Lots of work adding several hard core paths across the park meant a few minor alterations to the traditional course. The women’s race was 1 shorter lap and 2 long laps, totally about 4 miles.  Sara Elliott and Caron Ralph ran together for the first lap, before Sara gradually moved through the field to finish in 72nd in 30:53.  Caron…

Sunday 23rd October – The Really Wild Boar Fell Race

Sunday 23rd October – The Really Wild Boar Fell Race

Report from Caron Ralph: December is generally Andrew’s and my annual trip to the Really Wild Boar fell race in Ravenstonedale. Andrew to marshal on the summit and me to race , but due to school holidays etc Gary and Debbie Devine have moved this little corker to October so its prime racing weather and it didn’t disappoint!  After scouring Groupon for a good deal for an overnight stay in the Fat Lamb (nearest..sorry only pub in the middle of…

Sunday 23rd October – Whixley 10k

Sunday 23rd October – Whixley 10k

Report from Howard Jeffrey: In the words of Swiss Tony, the Whixley 10K (near York) was ‘like making love to a beautiful woman’: no warm up (too busy gassing), no rhythm (off road ruts and mud), over quickly (fastest time for ages) with a reward at the end (came first 0/60 in 42.48 and got a bottle of wine). The race was won by Phil Batty, unattached in 35.17 (rewarded with a giant pork pie!) first lady Jacqui Khoueiry Wakefield…

Saturday 22nd October – Eccup New Inn Handicap

Saturday 22nd October – Eccup New Inn Handicap

A bit like buses, Tom waited 5 years for a handicap win before his win at Thruscross.  However he only had to wait 4 months for his next at the New Inn, his 9th in 198 races!  Andy Sumner was closing fast but couldn’t quite catch Tom on the final hill. David Cattanach and Tom Pomfrett are now tied at the top of the handicap table on 101 points, with Tom Lynch 3rd on 90 and Tom Hannah 4th on 85….

Saturday 22nd October – Great Whernside Fell Race

Report from Matt Podd: Lovely weather for this on Saturday, straight up and down Great Whernside from Kettlewell. AS,  4 miles with 1558 ft of ascent. First time I’ve done it and I really enjoyed it. Four black and whites took on the challenge- Graham Lake 34th in 39.22, Me 142 in 54 mins, and two unsung heroes of the club who quietly do a lot of fell racing – Bob Baker 146 in 55 mins and Don Buffham 158 in…
