Sunday 7th October 2018 – Hodgson Brothers Relay

Hodgson Brothers Relay Leg 3. Report from S Boddy After a very pleasant drive, I arrived at Hartsop with perfect timing bumping into Caron, Colin, Andrew and Joe walking back from the end of leg 1. Caron and Colin were chuffed as they had beaten both the leg 2 mass start and their time from last year so immediately there were was a good feeling in the group. Caron then took Joe and Andrew back to Sykeside where leg 4…

Sunday 30th September – Lockton Limping

Sunday 30th September – Lockton Limping

Report from Joe Torr: Lockton Limping (10.5 km 330m) Tom and I decided to nip over to the North York Moors at the weekend to run the 6.5 mile Lockton Limping fell race – hopefully neither of us would end up Limping before the following weekends Hodgson Relays. Having turned up very much ‘on time’ we ended up having to practically sprint a mile just to get to the start line on time, good warm up straight out of the…

Sunday 30th September – Pontefract Half Marathon

Report from Phil Robinson The second running of this newish event attracted a good-sized field, but parking and registration was straightforward. Richard Hamer had proposed travelling together but set his alarm for the wrong time… oh Richard! … so Otley A.C. was represented by Deb, Josie and me. Taking in the fine old town centre the route headed south and west to one-time rugby league stronghold Featherstone, then round by Ackworth and Wentbridge back to finish in a couple of…

Beck Busters 10k – Sunday 30th September

Report from Billy Sunday morning myself, Sara Elliott and Peter Gosling travelled over to the beautiful village of Bishop Monkton for the inaugural Beck Busters 10k organised by the Friends of Bishop Monkton School. After collecting our numbers we bumped into Don Buffham and Bob Baker. After a short warm up on the field at the rear of the school we made our way to the start just inside the school gates. The start was narrow but we soon had…

Saturday 29th – Sunday 30th September: ROC mountain marathon

Saturday 29th – Sunday 30th September: ROC mountain marathon

Report from Sarah Fuller The RAB mountain marathon (it was rebranded to ROC MM a couple of years back) and I go back a long way – I did the second running of the event in 2008, which was pretty much my first mountain marathon (aside from a KIMM in 2003 well before I actually did running!), I loved the event and the navigational challenges of score and was hooked. Since then I’ve run many of the subsequent RAB’s and…

Chelmorton Chase – Sunday 23rd Sept

Chelmorton Chase – Sunday 23rd Sept

Another great write up, this time from Tom Pomfrett. I spent last weekend in the Peak District catching up with a few friends so we did what any sane person would and headed to the FRA calendar to see if there were any races in the local vicinity and came across the Chelmorton Chase. I don’t think I’m alone in enjoying the simplicity of fell running. You turn up, fill in a familiar looking form and then run up and…
