Sunday 12th September – Tholthorpe 10k

Report from Howard Jeffrey: As Shakespeare himself once said ‘I’ll be back’, so too, here am I. Had a fallow period during covid, which I do periodically anyway and expected to get back training about 3 months ago. Then injured my sacro iliac joint (OUCH!), so was on crutches for a few weeks. Thankfully no permanent damage. Have found it really hard to get motivated after doing basically nothing. I kept getting emails to announce that this race was back…

Saturday 11th September – UTS50

Report from Sarah Fuller: ‘its only 50K it will be a nice chilled day out in the mountains’ that’s what I thought when I signed up for the UTS 50 (Ultra trail Snowdonia). Turns out I was right and so very very wrong! I’ve spent a lot of time in the Snowdonia mountains over the years climbing and running and was really looking forward to getting back there after a long absence. I originally entered the race as an alternative…

Saturday 4th September – Skipton Trail Half Marathon

Report from Matt Podd I’d seen this race promoted by due North events on fb ages ago and entered, and it was to be my first proper race since the start of the Covid hiatus. Travelled over with Gavin – Renee Saxton’s partner. The parking was at a farm north of Skipton on the Grassington road. Wandered across to the start in a field below Flasby Fell. It was a mass start, which I much prefer and off we went…

Saturday 28th August – The Grand Tour of Skiddaw

Saturday 28th August – The Grand Tour of Skiddaw

  Report from Carl Morris:   76 km (46 miles) with 2200m ascent (7200ft) 7th Overall Place, Finishing Time 08:45:50 The Grand Tour of Skiddaw is a 46-mile race in the Lake District. It runs from Dalston through to Caldbeck, and then circuits through the Northern Fells, with a high-point on the summit of Skiddaw, before doubling-back to the finish. I had that wonderful mix of nerves and excitement – like a revving car, with the handbrake still firmly in place…
