Thursday 27th December – Wansfell

Wansfell Pike Fell Race 2.1 miles 1329ft Having some vouchers for the Quiet Site in Ullswater to use, Andrew and I decided to book a stay in the twixmas break.  As per usual whenever we go to the Lakes Andrew scours the fellrunner for races and lo and behold Wansfell Pike Fell Race came up on the 27th December! “It’s a nice one” he said, “You’ll like this one” he said, “it’s only a couple of miles” he said, “first…

Sunday 23rd December – 30th Ken Dixon Christmas Handicap

Sunday 23rd December – 30th Ken Dixon Christmas Handicap

Report by the Hon. Handicapper.. A cold, wet day but thankfully no wind to speak of for the traditional Christmas handicap first run in 1989, see the race report here.  The Christmas handicap was  devised by yes you guessed it,  former member Mr Dixon.  Myself and Phil Robinson ran that day and neither have ever won in the 30 years since, a second for Phil in 1990 the best placing.  However  Antonio became the third person to take a second…

Sunday 16th December – Denby Dale Travellers 6

Sunday 16th December – Denby Dale Travellers 6

Report from Howard Jeffrey Another glorious sunny day and another testing hilly course. 258 line up for this pre-Christmas road race in the town famous for pies. The route consist of long steep drags with the odd descent to mile 4 and then downhill to 200 yards from the finish and then a little sting in the tail back up to the finish at the Pie Hall from where it had all started. It was like the old days but…

Sunday 9th December – Vocation Mytholmroyd

Sunday’s race marked the final fell runner of the year race for 2018, and all but finalised the competition, barring any late changes from nominated races (there aren’t many options left!). Check out the latest table here. Congratulations to Phil Robinson on the win! Report from Lizzie Irvine: Exactly 36 hours after being booted out of the last pub on the Otley AC Christmas party pub crawl we gleefully trudged our way up the first hill of the Vocation Mytholmroyd…

Sunday 9th December – Bah Humbug 10k

Sunday 9th December – Bah Humbug 10k

Report from Howard: This is a very tough, hilly almost cross country 10k. Despite the not very Christmassy sounding name the elves, Santas and reindeer were out in force. Clear blue sky and pleasantly mild, windless conditions prevailed so we were lucky. Chatted with Andy and Sara before the start which was from the South Leeds Stadium track. The microphone and speakers translated the starting official’s announcements into Klingon! He would have been better asking for quiet, then speaking up….

Saturday 8th December – West Yorkshire XC League – Keighley

Saturday 8th December – West Yorkshire XC League – Keighley

After 3 dry league races, a period of sustained rain produced more traditional cross country conditions at Cliffe Castle, Keighley.  There was lots of entertainment for the spectators on the section contouring across the steep slippy slope at the top of the hill, I’m sure there’ll be plenty of photographic evidence about in the next week.  Some great results in the juniors & senior ladies, the old men have seen better days, but did their best and enjoyed the mud……
