Penistone 10k (Multi terrain) 25/06/17

Report from Mark Hall A trip over to south Yorkshire. I won this event back in 2003 ( Has it really been so long ago!) this is the first time I have returned and although the last half of the event has changed the first 5k is still a constant climb with some very steep sections. After 5 and a half Kms there is a steep descent on to the trans Penine trail (off road) which is 3 kms of…

Saturday 10th – Sunday 11th June – ITU Aquathlon/Standard Triathlon

Report from Howard Jeffrey: Last year I made the podium with a bronze medal in my age group at the English aquathlon championships (750m swim 5K run)and this year felt in about the same shape. Aquathlon is where good swimmers (maybe not so good runners) take on the good runners (maybe not such good swimmers). I looked at the competition and decided that the chance for Gold was on this year as the strongest swimmer in the age group was…

Sunday 4th June – Lakeland Trails Marathon

Sunday 4th June – Lakeland Trails Marathon

Report from John Davis There are two races I’ve done three times, the Bluebell Trail and this, the Lakeland Trails’ Marathon in Coniston.  In both cases, the reason for coming back’s the same – some beautiful scenery, varied and interesting running, and a beast of a challenge. Coniston is a trail marathon – a little road running, but mostly on tracks and paths.  It starts at a campsite below the village, heads down to the lake shore at the Gondola…
