Sunday 2nd April – Baildon Boundary Way

Sunday 2nd April – Baildon Boundary Way

Report from Mr Boddy The Baildon Boundary Way has been on my to-do list for some years now but the stars have never previously aligned (I’ve never got my entry in on time) as it involves trails I know well. With London just three short weeks away (gulp) I decided to ‘do a Robin’ and run there from Otley as it doesn’t seem enough to just run a race these days. I misjudged the distance from Hollins Hill to the…

Sunday 2nd April: Kong Mountain Marathon

Sunday 2nd April: Kong Mountain Marathon

Report from Sarah F: Had I realised quite how trashed I would still be at this stage post-Spine then I probably wouldn’t have entered this but there you go will I ever learn?! However, I’m so glad I did because it was the most stunning day in the lakes to be out on the fells and not having really run for 2 months I was desperate to get back out there. Expectations were realistic (i.e. low!) for performance in this…

Sunday April 2nd – Fountains 10K

Report from Howard Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the web-er, I return with tales of mud and derring do.

Lucky I did, as it filled up very quickly for some reason this year as it has never before been a…

Sunday April 2nd – Wakefield 10k Road Race

Sunday April 2nd – Wakefield 10k Road Race

Report From Ursula I ran this race a few years ago and seemed to remember it had a long incline on the way out and you enjoyed the downhill on the way back. How memories deceive! A good friend of mine was entering to support a student of hers whose mother has recently died and was well cared for by Wakefield Hospice – the organisers of the race. So when she asked if I would run too, I thought ‘Why…

Saturday 1st April – Dales Trail Series – DT20

Saturday 1st April – Dales Trail Series – DT20

Report from Gary The DT20 is the first of three races in the Dale’s Trail series. Race one is a 20km route (that’s 12 and a bit miles to me and you) that starts just outside of Reeth. The pictures of the course from a week ago showed snowy hills and frozen bogs, so no one was expecting the sun beating down on them for the steep climb up to the top of Fremington Edge in the first mile of…
