Wednesday 5th September – Ilkley Incline

Wednesday 5th September – Ilkley Incline

Report from Tom Pom Last Wednesday saw the most recent leg of my fat dad, post-baby comeback tour at Ilkley Incline. There are few better ways to make yourself feel unfit than running straight up a hill for a mile, but with fell league points up for grabs there was a decent turn out of black and whites, albeit an unusually man-heavy contingent. Now, this is the bit of the write-up where you normally describe the lovely course and beautiful…

Sunday 2nd September – Wetherby 10k

Report from El Pres Myself, Sara Elliott and Ann Yeadon drove over to Wetherby Racecourse to take part in the Wetherby 10k. As we set from Otley we saw the temperature gauge gradually rise from 21 degrees to 28 degrees on reaching Wetherby! At the racecourse we met up with Reebs Keinhorst, Amie Jordan, Hannah Place and Tash Whittaker. Whilst waiting on the start line with Reebs & Amie I saw Lee Gumbrell rushing to the back of queue of…

Saturday 1st – Tuesday 4th September: 3 races in Lanzarote

Saturday 1st – Tuesday 4th September: 3 races in Lanzarote

Report from Phil Robinson – It feels odd to be baking in the sun at Club Lasanta without my usual running pals from Otley A.C., so in lieu of swapping stories over lunch in the pool bar here’s an account of the week’s competitive events so far. Saturday 1st: 5 or 10k race This is a two-lapper for 10k with the option to drop out after 5k. Since no-one is obliged to declare in advance whether they’re doing 5 or…

Saturday 1st September: Firth fell race

Saturday 1st September: Firth fell race

Report from Colin Best: Firth fell race 9.8km 1627ft AS Five of us from Otley AC entered this race on a perfect day for fell running. However this race turned out to be quite bizarre. Although this was the second time this race had been run the course was not the same as last year being around 3km shorter. It proved to be shorter still for half the field. All was well as we started off down the road, and then…

Saturday 1st September: Longshaw sheepdog trial fell race

Saturday 1st September: Longshaw sheepdog trial fell race

Report from Matt Podd Spending the weekend at my Mother in Law’s in Buxton deprived me of the chance to join the team at the Firth Fell race, but I saw this in the FRA calender. A BS 5.3 mile Fell race in the Eastern Peak District, organised by Dark Peak. I have a few friends in this club and it was great to catch up and swap Dave Tait stories. I was honoured that the fell running legend Darren…

Monday 27th August – Black Combe (Bootle Show) Fell Race

Monday 27th August – Black Combe (Bootle Show) Fell Race

Report from Nick Hodgkinson: I had a big birthday (with a nought on the end) on Monday and I thought how better to celebrate than to do a fell run. The Black Combe (Bootle Show) Fell Race is ‘around 8 mile and 2000ft of hills’ depending on your choice of routes. Last year I got very lost in thick mist and ended up doing about 9.5 miles and coming last by over half an hour. This year the mist was still…

Podium 5k 27th Aug

Podium 5k 27th Aug

Report from Tony Walker Another wonder over the border to the quick 5 lap 5k on the Steven Burke cycling track. Rock up pay your fiver and go. I used to live over that way so bumped into a few old foes but no other Otley representation. I had a steady away run picking a few off after a steady start. Smallish fields but great standards. 19.24 was only good enough for 3rd v55! 1st Man Nick McCormick Olympian! 14.46…

Saturday 25th August – Burnsall Sports – Road 10Mile, Fell 1.5M 899ft

Saturday 25th August – Burnsall Sports – Road 10Mile, Fell 1.5M 899ft

Report from Stephen Boddy: International man of mystery, Antonio Cardinale cemented himself further into Otley AC folklore by completing the notoriously challenging ‘Burnsall double’, a day’s running even Darren Fishwick would be proud of. This involves running the undulating 10 mile road race at 2pm and following on to the Fell race which starts at 4.30pm. Antonio completed the double in style and with a smile on his face, even maintaining his composure enough to change vests in between races…
