Sunday 18th February 2018 – Liversedge Half Marathon

Sunday 18th February 2018 – Liversedge Half Marathon

Report from Billy Following injury, no training and having missed Brass Monkey & Dewsbury 10k I decided to run the Liversedge Half which I had also pre-entered. Usually race day at Liversedge consists of wind, rain, sleet or snow (usually all four!) but conditions were perfect which is more than could be said of my fitness. Knowing it was going to be slow I set off steady and at the back and steadily got slower especially in the later stages…

Saturday 3rd February – Rombald’s Stride

Saturday 3rd February – Rombald’s Stride

Report from Stephen Boddy There was a large contingent of Otley AC runners at the start line for this year’s edition of Rombalds Stride. It is an unforgiving route even in perfect conditions so the threat of snow and the inevitable icy bogs on Ilkley Moor promised an even sterner challenge. And so it was thus.
