Sunday 4th August – 32nd Foulees de Longemer 10k race, Vosges, France.

Report from Sara Richard: Having arrived at the campsite in Xonrupt-Longemer, Vosges, France on Friday 2nd August I found out about the very popular 10k road race on the 4th. Having completed the entry form, it was also obligatory to provide a certificat d’aptitude or proof of fitness. Luckily, I had my UKAA card which was accepted. The race started on one side of the lake shaded by the tree covered hills and went gently downhill ,the other side of…

Thursday 15th August – Wharfemeadows Handicap

Fresh from several recent local fell races and despite a 10 second penalty for missing the last rugby posts at the start Antonio stormed to a 2 and a half minute win.  The 2 Toms dead heated for 2nd as the photo finish was to hand to separate them.  Liam just pipped Ben for the fastest time of the night by a second and some great times by the juniors Ned, Aston and Jenson. After 8 races in the Eric…

Sunday 11th August – Askern 10

Sunday 11th August – Askern 10

Report from Howard I have done the Askern 10 a few times in the past and it is usually a testing race as much because of the weather in August as the undulating course. I entered it this year as it was the first race in my new age category. I figured the temperature was going to be unseasonably low but it turned out to be quite a hot sunny day. It had taken me the best part of a…

Thursday 8th August – King’s Challenge

Report from Andrew Robertshaw: A very simple challenge from Wharfedale Harriers, a race up and down to the Trig point at the Addingham end of Ilkley moor and a nominated race in the OAC fellrunner of the year competition, 6 miles,  1100ft. With 19 years of running to the moor and back from Silsden I’m very familar with the race route.  Starting outside the Kings Arms it goes through the park, up through several farm fields, past Swartha village and on…

Sunday 4th August – Round Hill Fell Race

Sunday 4th August – Round Hill Fell Race

Report from Howard J You are not likely to get many fell race reports from me as it is not my preferred terrain. This one will be familiar to most of you as it is an Otley AC event and as fell races go (so I’m told) is fairly benign. Got some great advice from Antonnio about where the worst dangers underfoot were likely which turned out to be spot on. My decision to do this and not the usual…

Sunday 4th August 2019 – York 10k

Sunday 4th August 2019 – York 10k

Report from Rob Grant A bit like the Leeds 10k, the York equivalent has a nice, laid-back, all-inclusive feel to it. There’s something for everyone, and in this one the course is fun and twisty and a lot more scenic. I really enjoyed it. Much better than the Leeds 10k I have to say. The appropriately named Graham Rush was the first home out of 5217 finishers in a time of 31:20. Representing OAC were me (31st place, 36:01 gun…
