Sunday 27th May – Melmerby 10K

Sunday 27th May – Melmerby 10K

Report from Howard My recollections of Melmerby are of hot days with the heat reflecting back off the tarmac to make for gruelling races. Today was no exception although there was quite a breeze in places as well. Today a time of around 45 minutes was going to be the target. At the off the usual rush to the first kilometre had to be resisted although I got there in 4.10 which was a bit ahead of target pace but…

Alan Kirk Memorial Lads Leap Fell Race (Inter-Counties champs)

Alan Kirk Memorial Lads Leap Fell Race (Inter-Counties champs)

AS 5.9m 1699ft (or, according to my Suunto, and my legs – 6.4m 1844ft! which makes it an AM possibly?) This was part of a camping weekend to celebrate my brother’s birthday. This race is usually in March, and pretty low-key, but as it was the Inter-Counties Championship there was a larger, and definitely more talented field than usual! It was a gloriously warm day for spectating the women’s race which went off just after noon, but a horrendously hot…

Before the start I met up with…

Saturday 19th May: Nottingham sprint triathlon

Report from Howard: This race was the first open water triathlon of the year and a qualifier for the European Championships to be held in Glasgow in August this year. I set myself up for the challenge of a hard race with lots of competition given Glasgow is accessible for most UK triathletes. Sure enough there were 61 registered for the championships of which 21 turned up at Nottingham. I calculated I had to have a blinder and come in…

Saturday 19th May – Old County Tops fell race

Report from Tom Lynch: After 2 years to recover I decided to have another go at the Old County Tops fell race (37 miles, 10000 feet) which I first completed in 2016 with Tom Pomfrett. The race takes in the highest points of the old counties of the Lake District – Helvellyn (Westmorland), Scafell Pike (Cumbria) and Old Man of Coniston (Lancashire). The race is a paired race, so I roped in Gary Johnson to partner me, and this was…
