Thursday 31st May – Apperley Bridge Canter

I have given up racing midweek as a general rule but entered the ABC because it was part of the Leeds race series and I am in pole position in the age group. I had actually forgotten I had entered and was in serious tapering mode for the Chester triathlon on Sunday, this race being a qualifier for next year’s world championships. Hey ho I decided a tough 10k trail race would be just the thing to get me sharpened…

Sunday 27th May – Melmerby 10K

Report from Howard My recollections of Melmerby are of hot days with the heat reflecting back off the tarmac to make for gruelling races. Today was no exception although there was quite a breeze in places as well. Today a time of around 45 minutes was going to be the target. At the off the usual rush to the first kilometre had to be resisted although I got there in 4.10 which was a bit ahead of target pace but…
