Saturday 8th June – Lasanta (Lanzarote) 10k

Report from Phil Robinson: Richard Hamer and I braved the afternoon heat to puff and pant our way round this seaside route. Encouraged by Tom Hannah, we came storming through to finish in third and fourth places in the men’s section. You may have guessed that there were four male finishers. Results (men) – 1 Mark Smith 42.55, 2 Casper Ostergaard 44.15, 3 Phil Robinson 54.42, 4 Richard Hamer 55.39.

Sunday 16th June – Settle Hills Fell Race-BM 1750ft

Report from Caron Ralph: I don’t know why I’ve never looked at this race before when Andrew said I would enjoy the route, but I’m glad I did!  What started with a drizzly drive up ended with a lovely run out in fairly warm and clear weather.  After meeting up with fellow member Colin Best, who had decided not to do Buckden Pike the day before, we walked down to the start at Settle Market Square.  Colin and I generally…

Wednesday 5th June – Chevin Fell Race

Wednesday 5th June – Chevin Fell Race

Report from Toby Fisher This was my first attempt at this local evening race organised by Skyrac AC. Conditions were very good after some rain the day before which softened up the ground a bit for the descent. The race involves a sprint (for some!) from Station Road up Johnny Lane and the Chevin Steps to Surprise View before hurtling back down via Dead Man’s Hill and past the White House again. There was a good turnout with 160 runners…

Tuesday 4th June – Ripon Harrogate League – OAC Sealed Handicap

Tuesday 4th June – Ripon Harrogate League – OAC Sealed Handicap

A rather wet one for the second Harrogate League race of the season at Ripon.  In spite of the awful conditions most people seem to enjoy splashing round the interesting multi-terrain course hosted by Ripon Runners.  Richard Smith has a great run with a 18th place finish, as did Vicky who was just pipped for the first ladies place by 2 seconds by the local runner Emma Sorley, but did come first in her category.  Other Category placings for Otley…

June 2nd 2019 – Hull Half Marathon

June 2nd 2019 – Hull Half Marathon

Report from the ageless Phil Robinson Having enjoyed the Humber Bridge half last year I went back East to sample this race, partly because it was designated by U.K. athletics as a qualifier for an England age-group Masters vest. A 10k race started soon after the half-marathon and followed part of the same flat, uninteresting course through the streets of Hull. Towards the end of my run I was mingling with back markers from the 10k, which attracted over 3000…

Report From Colin Best Maybe because it was 3 o’clock start but to my surprise I was the only Otley representative at this years Pen Y Ghent fell race so at least. Good turnout from other clubs and good running conditions. Gala rubbish as always. As has been the trend I was slower than last year but still enjoyed it. 1st Male Darren Kay V40 Calderdale 49.35 1st Female Scout Adkin Ambleside 57.23 176th Colin Best  V60 Otley 1.19.37 213…

1st June 2019 – Wharfedale Trail Half Marathon

Report from Nicky Gifford I had some unfinished business with this race, as last year I had to wave Sara, Hannah, Richard (who took my place) and Geoff off, due to an Glute med tendinopathy that kept my off running for most of last year. This year Geoff, Sara, Martin and myself set off to do battle with the hills! The race description states ,“a great day out in some of Wharfedales finest scenery with over 2,000 feet of ascents…
