Sunday 21st May – European Long Distance Duathlon Champs. St Wendel Germany

Sunday 21st May – European Long Distance Duathlon Champs. St Wendel Germany

Report from Howard: I well remember the words of the witty Nick Hancock (remember him) when he said ‘Birmingham City have discovered there is no such thing as an easy game of football…..especially when you’re shite’! By the same premise I discovered that there is no such thing as an easy ‘long’ (it is actually ‘only’ a middle) distance duathlon. Whilst perhaps not actually shite I am competing at the absolute limit of my level of training allows. No amount…

Wednesday 17th May – Kildwick Fell Race

Wednesday 17th May – Kildwick Fell Race

Report from Graham Lake: Kildwick Fell Race, BS 6Km, 245M (or 3.7M, 804ft post-brexit) Only two Black and Whites braved the forecast for what turned out to be a beautiful, dry evening race. Kildwick is similar to the Chevin Fell race in that there’s a bit of road, a steep road climb then some moorland running. Having had a look at the downhill, and knowing how much Jonny Lane hurts on the descent I swapped from fell to trail shoes, which…

Wednesday 17th May – John Carr Race 3

Report from Robin… So we roll on into Race 3 of the John Carr Series and this time I get a lift there. Oh yes, I am saving these bad boys ( points to legs ). The scene is set when I arrive with various “Go Robin” banners and “We love you Outtersides” signs up all around.  I have a short chat with PB-er in waiting Stephen Boddy and Tom Lynch and after some short run chat we are placed…

Sunday 14th May – Ripon 10

Sunday 14th May – Ripon 10

Report From Sara After deciding I wasn’t feeling the love for Leeds Half I took the plunge and entered Ripon 10 on Friday afternoon. I was the only OAC member there, though I did have a good chat with former member Sharon Smith, who was proudly wearing her B&W vest!! My friends from Nidd Valley adopted me too, so I wasn’t a total Billy no mates… I’d been warned that it was a hilly course, and bearing in mind my…

Sunday 14th May – Leeds Half Marathon

Sunday 14th May – Leeds Half Marathon

Report From Mr H Jeffrey… I was psyched up to do a decent Leeds today although the fifteen minutes in the start pen and then a ten minute delay to the start absorbed most of the pre-race adrenaline. Not a bad thing I guess as it forced a steady start, it took me 30 seconds to get to the chip mat. After last week I was hopeful of between 1.30 and 1.32 with a reasonable result at no slower than…

A superb turnout of 50 runners on a perfect evening for running and the bonus of no midges.
