Sunday 31 March – Keighley Big 10k

Sunday 31 March – Keighley Big 10k

Report from Matt Whilst many members of the club were enjoying the beauty of the Lake District, Rob Fearnley and I were enjoying the beauty of Keighley, on this scenic tour. Through builders merchants, lorry parks, back alley’s and allotments, it’s not boring and it’s not flat. Highlights included seeing a turkey on one of the allotments, some out of date wraps in the goody bag and having to get up extra early due to the clocks changing. Won by…

Sunday 24th March – Heptonstall Fell Race

Report from Matt Podd: Matt P and Tom P picked up Laura Clark and Garry Johnson and headed south, braving a passage through Keighley to rock up in the lovely village of Heptonstall for the BL 15 mile fell race. No time to visit the grave of Sylvia Plath for the moors awaited us. Met up with Richard Smith (looking a bit nervous about this Fell running lark). After a blessing by the local Vicar who was not very good…

Sunday 24th March – Wakefield 10k

Sunday 24th March – Wakefield 10k

Report from Howard Jeffrey: I kept ticking over last week with swimming and the weather was good enough to get out on the road bike a couple of times. The breeze was still a bit chill and a headwind for the return legs made for a harder workout than on the turbo. Yesterday for the Leeds race series was another parkrun at Rothwell so I was able to push a bit harder and managed a solid 22.01 and another uncontested finish in…

Thirsk 10 17th March 2019

Report from Howard Jeffrey aka the Bard I have upped the training to maximum in preparation for the duathlon at the end of April. Friday was a speed session which if you can call slow motion running on the spot into the teeth of a gale force wind ‘speed’. Going the other was however, with the leg speed at superspeed to prevent being blown over! Saturday was another parkrun in the Leeds race series so another hard day. Thirsk was…

Bradford 10k 17th Mar 2019

Bradford 10k 17th Mar 2019

Report from Mr Boddy After a lovely few months mainly running on The Chevin or other, scenic off-road trails it was time for me to pay my dues. My penance was the Bradford 10k, my annual hour of self-flagellation on Canal Road awaited. They had tweaked the course this year but I don’t think anyone noticed. Luckily I could still play my favourite Bradford 10k game of Count The Car Showrooms (7) and dream about my favourite car to buy…

Saturday 16th March – Hardmoors 55

Report from Sarah F Anyone who went on the training weekend last year will remember the ‘beast from the east’, which also coincided with the Hardmoors 55 race (the race ended up being called off 20 miles from the end for the majority of the field including me). I entered the race again this year, my third time and hopefully my second finish. The weather couldn’t possibly be as bad as last year could it ? Enter storm Hannah –…
