April 15th – 30th – Menston Handicap

April 15th – 30th – Menston Handicap

333 club handicaps over 35 years and Carol and Don became the first joint winners over the new 5.4 mile Menston route.   I don’t about anyone else but I found it hard work back up to the finish from the railway on.  On the final day and for a few minutes only, a returning to form Tom Paget had the fastest time, only to be over taken by Toby Fisher.  Sara Elliott had the fastest ladies time.

Racebest 10k – Elvington Airfield Sunday 25th April

Racebest 10k – Elvington Airfield Sunday 25th April

Report from Phil Robinson This qualified as a race – chip times taken, results published, prizes offered (sent by post, no hanging around after the event) – but was run as a time trial. We queued up, socially distanced, to start, then ran one short and two long laps of the runway circuit. Flat, but unrelentingly boring. Still, it was another bright clear morning and great to be able to join in a competitive event. Having checked the national rankings…

Saturday 24th April – Endeavour 10k

Saturday 24th April – Endeavour 10k

Report from Richard Smith : After a bit of a pacing disaster at Wigan Fast 5K, I travelled up to Middlesbrough on Sunday to take part in the Graded Endeavour 10K. The route compromised of 10 laps of a closed road circuit. Brilliant experience to be in a field compromising of the likes of Lewis Gamble-Thompson, Aly Dixon and Mary Ngugi (who ran an inspiring 31:41 and interestingly didn’t wear a watch). Not a PB for me but I was…

Saturday 17th April – Burnsall half-marathon trail race

Report from Phil Robinson: In the depths of winter I entered this race, mainly to have a target for the spring; fortunately it was a bright clear day, the course was really well marked and marshalled, the going dry underfoot, do only the hills to complain about. Two major climbs – the first from the Wharfe up to the moor above Troller’s Gill, back down to the river then up again to Dibble’s Bridge on the Grassington-Greenhow road, and back…
