Sunday 24th September – Harrogate Haverah Trail 10

We soon met up with Joanna H, Sara R, Nicky G, Lizzie I, Rob F, Rogan A and Phil R shortly before the start. As start time approached the…

Report from Ian Broadbent: On Saturday I did Trailffest 2017 for the second time travelling to and staying in Porthmadog for the weekend.

The train arrived at Tanygrisiau where runners disembark and there’s about a 45 minute wait whilst the train goes up to blaunea and turns round. On…

We’d entered this months ago following a couple of other enjoyable trots around at similar ‘races’. What’s not to like about a day out with some friends where you can eat and chat your way around the course? And…
