Sunday 5th August – Round Hill Fell Race

Sunday 5th August – Round Hill Fell Race

See the full set of results here, a few more photos here. Would the record go this year?…. Certainly helpful bone dry underfoot conditions but this was negated to some extent with the sticky 24, 25 degree heat, and yes it was.  Richard Pattinson’s course record was  broken in style by City of York’s Tim Stratton, 53:07.  He was chased hard by Will Simmons from Ilkley who also dipped under the record with 53:36.  The Vets category prizes went to…

Sunday 5th August – Asda York 10k

Report from Howard Jeffrey: I like to do this race for two reasons: it goes through the beautiful city of York where the crowds are out in force to cheer us on and secondly there is nothing much else on in August! Apparently I also became a ‘hero’ for finishing this one. I set off early for the venue because it can get very busy and after a bit of a queue parked in my usual spot ready for a…

Sunday 22nd July – Arthur James Shakerrr

Report from Billy Travelled over to Saltaire with Arifa and Andy from Skyrac to take part in the Arthur James Shakerr and try to get a bit fitter after holidays and gout! Waiting about was quite chilly compared to the last few weeks but it warmed up just after the start. A 12.5k course along the canal and back with a detour through the woods near esholt. The recent warm weather meant the ground was firm under foot making it…

Brighouse Festival of Running 22nd July 2018

Brighouse Festival of Running 22nd July 2018

Report from Tony Walker The antithesis of the general reports on lovely hills/hours of endurance/great personal risk…This was possibly the dullest course ever!! 3 laps of which one lap was a straight road and then back again. 3 times. And it was flat aside from a marginal and I mean marginal rise towards the halfway point of the lap. It started in Sainsbury Car park! I love it! No distractions head down focus on your pace. Great organisation with split…

Saturday 21st July – Lochcarron Highland Games Hill Race

Saturday 21st July – Lochcarron Highland Games Hill Race

Richard Hamer ventures north: Despite having been a regular visitor to Scotland over the past 20 years or so, I’ve never been to a highland games, and back in January I decided that 2018 would be the year. My research brought me to the Lochcarron Games which ticked a lot of boxes in terms of date and location, and as an added bonus a fell race (hill race, north of the border). The games are held at Attadale, which is…
