Sunday 27th November – Barnsley 10k

Sunday 27th November – Barnsley 10k

Race Report From the Record Breaker Mark Hall Winner: Joe Sweetnam-Powell. Sheffield RC. 33.15 Mark Hall. 35.32, 12th, 1st V55. Lots of hills in this event, It’s definitely not a PB race! I was pleased to only be 40 seconds slower than Leeds AD and a minute faster than last year in this event. No other OAC runners. Further Update from Mr Andy Webster Mark did not look far enough down the results! I ran The Barnsley 10k for the third time….

Sunday 27th November – Peco XC Race 1 Temple Newsam

Sunday 27th November – Peco XC Race 1 Temple Newsam

Report From Graham Lake I’ve been struggling to find races that fit in with everything else going on, so took advantage of a bit of free time to do this as a guest runner. It was a fine autumn day for 500 runners (and that’s just the men) to do a lap of the fields, woods and hills of the estate. With my new streamlined chin I took it fairly easy for the first mile, but felt good, so pushed…

Sunday 20th November – Race 3 West Yorks. XC League Spenborough

Sunday 20th November – Race 3 West Yorks. XC League Spenborough

Report from the Hon. Handicapper: The recent wet spell made the going on the soft side at the course next to Spenborough’s Princess Mary track.  The senior ladies did 3 laps of a spectator friendly, ‘loopy’ course with a few hills thrown in.  Wakefield’s Charlene Thomas was an easy winner in 19:43,  Sara Elliott was first for Otley in 61st, 26:00, followed by Caron Ralph in 72nd, 27:29. Antonio was the sole representative for Otley in the men’s 5 lap race…

Sunday 20th November – Darmstadt Cross

Sunday 20th November – Darmstadt Cross

Report from Tom Lynch: My sister persuaded me to enter the Darmstadt Cross race, as it conincided with my visit to see her in Germany, and also made up for missing the 3rd race in the WYXC league. The race is a 6.6km XC race that is part of a bamboozling set of races (15) that contribute to University Championships, a German Cross Country Cup and qualification for the German Athletics team. I’m not entirely sure which race I was…

Sunday 20th November – The Wensleydale Wedge

Sunday 20th November – The Wensleydale Wedge

Report from Hannah Lupton I’ve decided I’m completely barking. After the ultra in early Oct I didn’t feel I’d quite finished with my adventures for the year and when Liz Fawcett asked if anyone wanted to join her in doing the Wensleydale Wedge I thought why not. It’s a LDWA 23 miler like Rombalds, starts and finishes in Askrigg passing through Thoralby, Aysgarth up to Bolton Castle and across Askrigg Moor. Liz did a recce a couple of weeks ago…

Sunday 20th November – Brampton to Carlisle 10m

Sunday 20th November – Brampton to Carlisle 10m

Report from Mark Hall Winner: Nick Swinburn, Morpeth 50.18 Mark Hall, 1st V55, 56.58. 27th place It was another long trip north this time to Carlisle, not as bad as the previous week (Glasgow). I had 2 targets for the end of season, Abbey Dash, to go under 35 mins. The X International (last week) was a nice distraction but never a target and the BC 10m. It is said to be the oldest road race in the UK, it’s…

Sunday 20th November – Clowne Half Marathon

Sunday 20th November – Clowne Half Marathon

Report from Howard Jeffrey The longer the distance the more effect the weather has on the performances. Today it was wet, cold and blustery. The course is all on road but only one short stretch between miles 8 and 9 is level. On the whole of the rest of the course you are either going up or down. The hills are thankfully not severe but still enough to be a bit of a challenge. Time to recover on the downs…
