Sunday 31 May 2020 – Lockdown Bake Off

Report from El Pres Following over two months of no reports I am pleased to report on the Lockdown Bake Off.

Retford Half Marathon – Sunday 8th March

Retford Half Marathon – Sunday 8th March

A great and welcome report by Tash Whitaker In these unusual times where we can’t run together and we are all in the house a lot more, I thought I’d do a report from the last Half Marathon that I’ll be doing for a while I reckon! I’d booked the Retford Half as a training race for the London Marathon as I’d done it a couple of years ago and know that it’s not too hilly so perfect preparation!  It’s also…

Friday 13 to Monday 16 March – Pooley Bridge training weekend

Friday 13 to Monday 16 March – Pooley Bridge training weekend

Report from Richard Hamer. “Was everything okay?” “No, it was horrible.” Wearing my journalist’s trilby, you never start a report with a quote; but we’re living in exceptional times and a certain unnamed someone was evidently not happy with their evening meal on the opening night of this year’s training weekend to Pooley Bridge, in the northern Lake District. For those in the dining room of the village’s Sun Inn, it provided a little light relief from the coronavirus that…

Sunday 15th March – Thirsk 10 mile

Sunday 15th March – Thirsk 10 mile

Report from Richard Smith After cancellation of the Bradford 10K I made a last minute call to run Thirsk 10. Fortunately, I was able to enter on the day. Despite the global pandemic, Thirsk decided to go ahead with the race following consultation with the Yorkshire Vet and England Athletics.  Given other race cancellations, it was a large and speedy field. Make no mistake, this is a fast, flat and scenic course. However, not the best conditions today in terms…

Sunday 8th March – Knighton 20

Sunday 8th March – Knighton 20

Report from Phil Robinson No, I’ve never heard of it either. But since Spen and Trimple coincide with our training weekend and I’ll be overseas on the East Hull 20 date this was the nearest 20 miler I could find. It’s a three-lapper in the Cheshire countryside with a few hills. No other Otley runners but a decent field of about 350 including relay teams doing one lap each. The fastest time for 20 miles this year in my age…

Saturday 7th March – Stan Bradshaw Pendle Round

Saturday 7th March – Stan Bradshaw Pendle Round

Report from Matt Podd BM, 10.4 Miles, 1936ft Ascent. Whilst others were running the club handicap, or the Panther’s ultra I was tempted to do this jaunt around Pendle Hill. Driven there by Mr Tate with his daughter accompanied us. At Race HQ we met the legendary Italian fell runner Mr Cardinale. I’ve not done this race before, and there had been some changes to the route due to erosion. We had a lovely day, dry (though not underfoot) and…
