Leeds Half Marathon 2014

On a breezy but mostly dry day, 44 of our members completed the Leeds Half Marathon. For 7 of them it was their first half marathon and for 15 it was a day for PB success. Well done to all and a big thank you goes to the many members who shouted, cheered, pom pommed, photographed and encouraged the runners along the route. It it very much appreiciated. Thanks also to Andrew Kirby for hosting the first “Post HM BBQ” which was enjoyed by many.

John Carr 5k Race Series – Race 1 of 3

15 members turned out on a cool windy Wendesday evening in search of a new 5k PB. The course is very fast and many of of our member’s 5k PBs have been recorded here over the years. This race was no exception and despite the wind, 6 new 5k PBs were recorded, which is excellent. Congratulations!

Also, thanks to Emma Jane and Sean Cook for their support and photos. For Sean’s photos click here

Bluebell Trail 2014

For those not familiar with this event, it is a very challenging 10.3 mile trail race with a famous 1 mile climb up the cobbled Trooper Lane with it’s 10% gradient to the top of Beacon Hill overlooking Halifax. The hills keep coming relentlessly after that until the last drop down to the river crossing and 100m dash to the finish. There cannot be many 10m races tougher than this one. Having said all that, the race actually sold out 500 places in advance for the first time ever. Nine of those places were bought by our members who took the challenge and ignored the warnings (or past memories).

The day was very pleasent, the bluebells were out in great numbers and the hosts made it a great occasion. Thanks to Stainland Lions for the excellent organisation and most enthuiastic marshalls. The course was, however, just as tough as ever but still a great day out.
