Brighouse resolution 10k – 5th Jan

Brighouse resolution 10k – 5th Jan

Report from Lee Gumbrell This new years resolutions included losing weight, running more races and sending in race reports so with that in mind I entered the Brighouse resolution 10k! Promises of a flat course were true but my lack of interest in the route meant I was unaware that it was 3 times out and back through an industrial estate! Highlights being the giant FIAT and Screwfix signs as well as a very neat set of traffic cones at…

1st January 2020 – Captain Cooks Fell Races

1st January 2020 – Captain Cooks Fell Races

Report from Graham Lake At 5 miles and under 1000ft ascent, this isn’t the most brutal of races, but coming where it does on New Year’s Day its often a challenge just getting to the line. However, not for me today thanks to Brewdog Nanny State (0.5%abv). This race has been going for 37 years, and today there was a chap running who had run every single one. It’s also the first in a series of 50 races this year…

Sunday 29th December: Ribble Valley 10k inc NOEAA Champs

Report from Tony Walker Scott Harrington take a bow! More on Scott shortly. I did this race a couple of times when I was living nearby many moons ago. Its always been a quality race but they’ve ramped it up even more lately. They even have an elite start! Its surprisingly quick despite a few undulations probably because you are constantly racing whatever your pace and its traffic free. Not that it helped me today! Saw young Scott Harrington and…

Sunday 29th December: Jolly Holly Jog

Report from Howard: The last race of the year and another I have been doing over the last 30 years or more. The route has changed a couple of times over that period and the current one is as easy as they can make it in the undulating countryside west of Ripon. Perfect weather for running today no wind, no rain and overcast. I found myself overdressed despite selecting a light T shirt, from my second outing in the  Las…

Thursday 26th December – Chevin Chase

Report from Howard Jeffrey: When I used to race this hard (and you could get in without sitting at the computer as entries opened) I did not enjoy it at all. One year when recovering from a virus I had to take it steady and guess what. it was great, The sun shone and the crowds were out  and it seemed like everyone knew I was called Howard or thought I was called Otley and the atmosphere was great. Today…

Sunday 22nd December – 31st Ken Dixon Christmas Handicap

Sunday 22nd December – 31st Ken Dixon Christmas Handicap

As ever the final handicap of the year is the hilly 5 mile Ken Dixon, a loop of Timble village followed by a lap of Swinsty.  Given the time of year, conditions were pretty much perfect for the showdown between Lee and Paul for the Eric Smith Handicap Trophy title.  With a big lead in the table Lee basically just needed to keep Paul, setting off 90 second ahead, in sight.  Paul did his best and kept ahead but Lee…
