Wednesday 18th July: Wallington 10K

Wednesday 18th July: Wallington 10K

Report from Colin Best: When I am in Northumberland I usually look out for any suitable races. I found this 10k road race from Wallington Hall, a national trust property, near Morpeth. The course was described as hilly so thought this would suit me. The start was a fifteen minute walk uphill from the finish, to the village of Cambo. That insured a downhill start and finish. Fortunately there was only one hill. Unfortunately it started just after the 3km…

Sunday 15th July – Burton Leonard 10k

Report from Howard Jeffrey: Yesterday I turned up at Cross Flatts to do the parkrun as part of the Leeds race series (they are not supposed to be races are they?) only to find the Beeston show being set up. Some mistake somewhere. I had arrived in good time and was able to go to Woodhouse moor to do that one as I was all psyched up to run hard. Not the best prep for today’s race but then I…

Wasdale Fell Race

Wasdale Fell Race

Report from Tom Lynch: Everytime I mentioned that I was planning to do the Wasdale race to someone I started to get a little more worried about what I’d got myself into due to their reaction. It has a formidable reputation, especially for first timers underestimating the race, and I possibly took it a bit too lightly, I didn’t really get a proper recce apart from knowing bits of the race from Bob Graham recces and other races around Scafell….

Saturday 14th July – Addingham Gala Fell Race – 5.9m 984ft

Saturday 14th July – Addingham Gala Fell Race – 5.9m 984ft

Report from Graham Lake Despite a few social media and WhatsApp shout-outs, I couldn’t muster anyone to join me for the Addingham Gala fell race, which was a fell league counter, but I had a feeling a certain Italian might be there. It was a HOT day, and having done Washburn relay the night before I wasn’t sure I was doing the right thing. The show field was a sun-trap, and I seriously considered just having an icecream and a…

Thursday 12th July – World Aquathlon championships Denmark

Thursday 12th July – World Aquathlon championships Denmark

Report from Howard Jeffrey: The English aquathlon championships (750m swim/5k run) were held in Leeds last year and despite being almost the last out of the water I overtook most of the competition in my age group because I knew the run course very well and only one lone Scot finished in front of me so did not count. So with some credibility I entered the world championships having medalled twice at the Europeans previously. There were 24 in the age…
