Sunday 14 October 2018 – Yorkshire Marathon

Report from Billy Myself, Sara Elliott, Lee Gumbrell and Chris Chambers set off early on a wet Sunday morning towards Elvington Airfield to catch the bus the the start area for the marathon.

At the start line we first…

Sunday 14th October: Palma half marathon

Sunday 14th October: Palma half marathon

Report from Phil Robinson: A few of us exchanged last weekend’s Yorkshire wind and rain for a sunny few days in Majorca. About 8000 runners took part in the three races – marathon, half, and 10k – centred around the seafront and old town of Palma. Pleasantly warm at the start, the temperature climbed steadily. The 10k was entirely along the seashore in the sun but the narrow streets of the old town offered some shade in the later part…

Sunday 7th October – Withins Skyline

Sunday 7th October – Withins Skyline

Report from Tom Pomfrett: While our running elite were getting cold in the Lake District at Hodgson Brothers Relay, the sensible among us were enjoying an unseasonably balmy day on the outskirts of Haworth at Withins Skyline. It’s a classic Woodentops race (albeit now run by Wharfedale Harriers) and the going was surprisingly firm given the long hot summer. The winner was Callum Davidson from Ribble Valley Harriers in 41:51. First lady was Nichola Jackson, also from Ribble Valley, in…

Sunday 7th October – The Hedgehog Half Marathon

Report from Joanna Hobson I’ve got to admit that I was originally attracted to this race for no other reason than I love hedgehogs! However, having looked in to the details further and seen that it was located at Normanby Hall Country Park in North Lincolnshire (close to my Mother in Law), a flattish course and in aid of St Andrews Hedgehog Hospital I decided to make the trip over to Normanby. This race was organised by Curly’s Athletes and…

Sunday 7th October 2018 – Hodgson Brothers Relay

Hodgson Brothers Relay Leg 3. Report from S Boddy After a very pleasant drive, I arrived at Hartsop with perfect timing bumping into Caron, Colin, Andrew and Joe walking back from the end of leg 1. Caron and Colin were chuffed as they had beaten both the leg 2 mass start and their time from last year so immediately there were was a good feeling in the group. Caron then took Joe and Andrew back to Sykeside where leg 4…

Sunday 30th September – Lockton Limping

Sunday 30th September – Lockton Limping

Report from Joe Torr: Lockton Limping (10.5 km 330m) Tom and I decided to nip over to the North York Moors at the weekend to run the 6.5 mile Lockton Limping fell race – hopefully neither of us would end up Limping before the following weekends Hodgson Relays. Having turned up very much ‘on time’ we ended up having to practically sprint a mile just to get to the start line on time, good warm up straight out of the…
