Club Championship Race 17 – Pudsey Post Hill

What a tough one eh? Not many people fancied this, all the more points for the ones that did! 

The points have been given out. Jonathan Young, new(ish) to the club, in his first CC race smashes his handicap time. Which with a 5k PB of 23:21 is sure to help him next year!

Bruges Marathon and Half Marathon 2017

We had 21 tourists who travelled to Bruges at the weekend to have fun and run in one of these races. 2 of the group were injured and came along to support (Ceata and Collette). The weather was HOT and sunny. An amazing 22 deg for mid October.

Many thanks to Simon Smith for organising the weekend which was fantastic in every respect.

Here are the results for the tour party:

Post Hill Challenge 2017 Results (Club Champs)

We only had 5 runners taking part in this tough 5k which includes running up Post Hill twice. The low turn out was probably due to the clash with the club trip to Bruges, not the hill climbs!! Well done to the 5 who made it.

Here are our results. Malcolm will be updating the club championship and posting on here soon.

First 5k Winter Time Trial – Oct 17

OCT TIME TRIAL

The winter time trials got off to a bit of a damp start – which does not help when writing on wet paper, but thanks to the invaluable assistance of Jemma and Kieran – all went to plan – more or less. Many thanks for all those runners who did turn up too, assuming they had seen the training schedule.

Among the 16 runners we had 2 new faces to the time trials – “old” member John Durkan who appears to have avoided doing these for the last two winters, and Nick Child, our latest new member. Paul Chapman was the first to start !!! mainly due to not having done these since his last major injury going back to the 2015/16 series when his recorded time was then 27.51 – but all looks like he is getting back to his speedy best. Needless to say Paul was first over the line with a run time of 23.45. Second home was the continually improving Cat James with a run time and pb for this course of 24.48 and third over the line (he must have known this was going to happen, hence joining the club?) was Nick with a run time of 23.13, proving the point that all us runners tend to play down our abilities most of the time. Bringing up the rear after his recent wedding and honeymoon was Malcolm Taylor with a run time of 27.14, but I did hear that he had a tennis match at 8.00pm that night. Fastest runner on the night was Paul Miller with a run time of 19.55, just pipping Lee Hardy and Adam Moger by 2 and 3 seconds respectively. All 3 finishing much higher then where they started. Fastest female on the night was Isobel Webster with a run time of 23.11. The time difference between the first and last runner was 6 minutes 14, but leaving out the first and last person home this was almost halved to 3 minutes 19. Hopefully they will be closer on the next one in November – and the night will be drier.
