Sunday 26th March – Don Morrison Memorial Edale Skyline Fell Race

Sunday 26th March – Don Morrison Memorial Edale Skyline Fell Race

Report from Matt Podd 18 miles and 1373m of ascent, AL It’s a long time since I’ve done a race in the Peak District (and an AL race) and I’ve always fancied this one. This is a very old and historic race, though the course was changed this year to add another hill climb to compensate for the flagging of a couple of miles of previously energy sapping bog. So whilst most were cavorting on the East Coast I did…

Sunday 19th March – Rivock Edge Fell Race

Sunday 19th March – Rivock Edge Fell Race

Report from Graham Lake: Living in Yorkshire for as long as I have you come to expect sun, heat and stable weather to greet you when you pull your inov-8s on. No such luck on Sunday! It was very wet, very windy and rather chilly; who’d have thought it?! This race was the epitome of ‘low-key’, starting on a trading estate with a mumbled ‘go then’ and a hooter from the RO to set us off. It’s not the epitome…

Sunday 19 March – Thirsk 10

Sunday 19 March – Thirsk 10

Report from Billy R On a very blustery Sunday morning I travelled alone, with Sara Elliott pulling out on the morning of the race due to tight calf muscles and feeling under the weather, to Thirsk for the 10 mile race which is usually well supported by  Otley AC. On leaving Otley with the wind and rain I wasn’t really looking forward to the race but when I arrived at Thirsk there was very little wind. After picking up my number…

Sunday 19th March – Bradford 10k

Sunday 19th March – Bradford 10k

Report from Robin Outtersides: I booked this race a while ago and having run it twice before, I decided to get some 10k speed in. Upon waking I saw t’weather and set off to run there as warm up, therefore giving me marathon miles-that precious commodity! You don’t want to know about the run there although it was pleasant enough especially getting to run the back 3 miles of the route with no one on the road. I felt like a…

Sunday 19th March – Thrunton Thriller – 10k & Half – Approx.

Report from the Hon. Handicapper: Thanks again to the hospitality of Colin I traveled up to the Northumberland, this time for a trail race in Thrunton Woods which is a few miles west of Alnwick.  The Thrunton Thriller advertises 2 races a 10k ish and a Halfish Marathon, the emphasis being on the ‘ish’.  The races are a mixture of pretty much every type of off road running you could think of, rough woodland, fallen trees to leap/duck under, wide forest tracks,…

Saturday 18th March – Clumber Park Duathlon

Report from Howard: The duathlon season started for me on Saturday and I ventured down to Clumber Park to do the standard distance of 10k run, 40K bike and finished off with a 5K run. It is a beautiful part of the world but if I am able to admire the scenery I am not racing hard enough. The race was a qualifier for the world age group championships in Penticton, Canada later in the year and next year’s European…
