Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon Sunday 12th May 2024

Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon Sunday 12th May 2024

Race report Laura Hind Riding high on the atmosphere of last year’s race, Eddy entered the Rob Burrow Leeds marathon, but unfortunately it was not meant to be, and a stress fracture around Easter saw us transfer the place into my name. I’d always wanted to do a road marathon, but was put off by the training, so having just 6 weeks to prepare took away any chance to overthink – it was just a head down and crack on with the situation!…

Nidderdale Charity Walk & Run Sunday 19th May 2024

Race report Alison Bowers What a glorious day it was to be out in Nidderdale on Sunday, 26 miles following the Nidderdale Way from Pateley Bridge to Scar House Dam, up onto Middlesmoor and back to Pateley seeing only 2 others runners (passing me). Both the views and weather were stunning. Since the pandemic this has been more of an event than race for runners, you can start whenever you want from 7am so it was a very peaceful day…

Cookridge Community 10k, Sunday 19th May

A small Otley contingent took part in the Cookridge Community 10k on Sunday morning, a beautiful, slightly undulating course, on trails and grass through Golden Acre park and surrounding countryside.  Free parking at Ralph Thoresby school and a 15 minute walk to the start at the Scout Hut – toilets, bag store, warmup led by local celebrity Cbeebies star George Webster. Lovely sunny day and great conditions – would highly recommend. 1st place woman Madeleine Corcoran Skyrac AC  42.07 1st place man Ben…

Burton Leonard 10k, Sunday 19th May

Burton Leonard 10k, Sunday 19th May

By Isabel Hart This race was organised by the local school in Burton Leonard, a small village between Harrogate and Ripon. My mum and I arrived greeted by booming music from the DJ on the field so it was quite a surprise at 10am! There were only 138 runners for the event so it didn’t feel cramped at the start line. The sun came out just as we started and after about 10 metres we headed up the village green…

Runners of the Month for April 2024

Runners of the Month for April 2024

Runners of the Month! April was a busy month especially as it’s marathon season. Therefore it seems appropriate for our first runner of the month to be Amie Jordan who ran her first London Marathon, and battled nerves and knees to finish in a brilliant time and thoroughly invested in the opportunity. Well done Amie! Secondly we have the marvel that is Derek Fuller. No stranger to the long-distance pain-cave, but what makes Derek’s Fellsman so remarkable is he has…

Thursday 16th May – Esholt Handicap

Thursday 16th May – Esholt Handicap

Perfect running temperature tonight, however lots of standing water and mud on the tracks and paths at the bottom of Esholt woods and the path on to the canal, slowed everyone a little. From there onwards lots of fast running with a couple of hills off the canal and through the village. Another first time handicapper, Carly took the win ahead of the first of three Rob Burrow marathoners, Sean, and the fastest time on the night. Lily Richards had…

It’s 22.5km long with 1200m of ascent, depending on route choice, and this year it was an English Champs race, to make it an especially tough field. The race does exactly as the description says, taking you up all the Cloughs on pendle – Ogden, Boar and Ashendean, and packs in plenty of climbing,…
