Sunday 11th March – Keighley 10K

Report from Matt Podd:

Rob Fearnley (running to support the charity), Donna Edmondson (her first ever race), Sarah Belt (bullied into it by Matt) and Matt Podd (running to support Improvers into racing) turned up at the Kieghley Leisure Centre to register and run this Sue Ryder organised race in nice weather. Not my normal type of race, but I was up for a laugh and any time in Keighley is…… Musical warm up and a lot of platitudes, and off we set for a tour of Keighley in a clockwise direction. A very interesting route, including going through a builders merchant yard, lots of snickets and ginnels, muddy paths, obscure back streets and three parks. The good folk of Keighley turned up to cheer us on, some in their jamas and onesies, many with a tab lit. Not a flat course or one for a PB, but very interesting. Well done to Sarah and Donna, early in their racing careers, no walking but some blue language. Organisers are having to post our T shirts out to us, as they hadn’t arrived in time.
