Saturday 12th October – Langdale Horseshoe Fell Race

Saturday 12th October – Langdale Horseshoe Fell Race

Report from Tom Lynch: Langdale Horseshoe is an AL fell race, with roughly 20km 1500 meters of climbing, taking in the summits of Bowfell, Crinkle Crags and Pike O’Blisco  jagged and very slippery underfoot, it takes a lot longer than you’d think to get round! Both previous years I’ve done, it’s been boiling hot all the way round, thankfully this year, it was a bit cooler and breezier, and the rain mostly held off. I was the only representative from…

Saturday 12th October – Thruscross Handicap

Saturday 12th October – Thruscross Handicap

There was lots of water around at the 10th race of the Eric Smith Handicap Trophy,  the dam is a spectacular sight when the water is flowing over the top, as it was today and the underfoot conditions weren’t much better on much of the race route.  On his 50th club handicap Matt Podd won his first in nearly 5 years, just 8 seconds ahead of Ian whose time of 32:33 was the fastest of the day and a new…

Sunday 6th October – Hodgson Brothers Mountain Relay

Sunday 6th October – Hodgson Brothers Mountain Relay

Report from Tom Lynch: Otley have put a team in the ‘Hodgsons’ every year since 2003 although apparently we’ve been flying under the radar, as a lot of people I talked to seemed to think it was our first year, I’m blaming it on the black vest! This is a prestigious fell relay in the Lake District that only a select few clubs get to enter on a one in one out basis due to the limited number of teams…

Sunday 6th October – Bramham 10k

Report from Howard On Saturday I had the opportunity to repeat one of the Parkruns in the Leeds race series at Armley. This in order to try and better my time of 22.00 from February, when the ground was frozen by 23 seconds to better my rival’s time of 21.38 set in July. Half the course is grass which was wet and muddy and it consists of three laps. I calculated that if I beat the first lady and was…

Sunday 29th September – Kirkstall 7

Sunday 29th September – Kirkstall 7

Report from Howard Jeffreys We escaped the deluge that engulfed the world championship elite men’s cycle race and the conditions were pretty good for the race which kicked off at 10.00 O’clock. The rain overnight had swelled an already swollen river so in parts on the trail sections a sloping six inch strip of mud was the only passable part of the path. The conditions underfoot made for generally slower times all round than last year. Today I was not…

Saturday 28th to Sunday 29th September: ROC Mountain Marathon

Saturday 28th to Sunday 29th September: ROC Mountain Marathon

Report from Sarah F: Anyone who reads my race reports (all 2 of you!) will know I am particularly partial to a mountain marathon (which for the un-initiated has everything to do with mountains and very little to do with the marathon!). The ROC (formerly RAB) at the end of September has been a firm favourite since I first ran it in 2008 (the second edition of the event). I ran with my usual MM partner Kate, who I have…
