Sunday 15th July – Burton Leonard 10k

Sunday 15th July – Burton Leonard 10k

Report from Howard Jeffrey: Yesterday I turned up at Cross Flatts to do the parkrun as part of the Leeds race series (they are not supposed to be races are they?) only to find the Beeston show being set up. Some mistake somewhere. I had arrived in good time and was able to go to Woodhouse moor to do that one as I was all psyched up to run hard. Not the best prep for today’s race but then I…

Wasdale Fell Race

Wasdale Fell Race

Report from Tom Lynch: Everytime I mentioned that I was planning to do the Wasdale race to someone I started to get a little more worried about what I’d got myself into due to their reaction. It has a formidable reputation, especially for first timers underestimating the race, and I possibly took it a bit too lightly, I didn’t really get a proper recce apart from knowing bits of the race from Bob Graham recces and other races around Scafell….

Thursday 12th July – World Aquathlon championships Denmark

Thursday 12th July – World Aquathlon championships Denmark

Report from Howard Jeffrey: The English aquathlon championships (750m swim/5k run) were held in Leeds last year and despite being almost the last out of the water I overtook most of the competition in my age group because I knew the run course very well and only one lone Scot finished in front of me so did not count. So with some credibility I entered the world championships having medalled twice at the Europeans previously. There were 24 in the age…

Sunday 1st July – Morecambe Half Marathon

Sunday 1st July – Morecambe Half Marathon

Report from Ian Broadbent I’m doing a half marathon a month for the remainder of the year and entered this one thinking it would be a typical breezy wet Morecambe day but it turned out to about 26c for most of the race. There were only 140 finishers and judging by the non collected numbers a lot decided not to run. The council work on the prom had overrun so there was a last minute change of route, 2 longish…
