Sunday 11th December: Christmas Cracker 10K Leeds

Sunday 11th December: Christmas Cracker 10K Leeds

Report from Howard: I have done this race for the last couple of years as a sole Otley AC entrant. A great pleasure yesterday to be joined by no less than three other B&Ws Sara, Andy and Ian.

Take it from me it was just as challenging and hardly different at all!…

Saturday 10th December: Ballyroan 10 mile Road Race

Report from Liam: I went home to Ireland last week and the visit coincided with my club’s inaugural 10mile road race on Sat 10th Dec.
