Accrington 10k Sunday 28th October

Accrington 10k Sunday 28th October

Report from Tony Walker Having had to abort a couple of pre-entered 10ks – the second one due to gout on the day, ouch! – I finally had a free Sunday and looked for a good race. I woke up expecting to do the Wistow 10k but then thought I’d better check if you can enter on the day. Good job I did because you couldn’t. So plan B was Accrington. I used to live over that part of the…

Sunday 28th October – Whixley 10k and Sunday 21st October ETU duathlon/aquathlon

Report from Howard: Just back from Ibiza where I took part in the European standard duathlon championships last Sunday in the blistering heat. The sprint the day before had been a bit chaotic with the beach transition being swamped by a heavy sea swell and then cramped into the town. Run crossovers and bike turns for them led to all sorts of bumps and falls and even some mis-directions from marshals. Our Spanish hosts learnt from this and the standard…

Saturday 27th October – Colin’s Calverley Handicap – Race 10 Eric Smith Trophy

Antonio ‘destroyed the field‘, (in his own words), 🙂  on a bitterly cold morning.  It would have been a little closer if Malcolm’s internal compass hadn’t gone awry dropping down to the canal at Apperley Bridge.  Nick had a fine run finishing 3rd just ahead of the fast finishing Rogan and Liam, who recorded the fastest time of the day. Bob retains  his big lead in the handicap table ahead of David Cattanach.  The battle for the podium is very…

Saturday 20th October – Foxborough 10k

Report from Tom Paget I’ve spent a week in the States visiting my brother and decided to give oversees racing a go. After an internet search I found the Foxborough 10k, a rather low key event organised by a local high school. I’m not a fan of the 10k distance – it always seems to be to be painful for the whole race – but it was the only event I could find. 125 of us toed the line after…
