This will be the Windermere marathon on 20th May. In previous years there has been a ½ marathon too however no details are released yet.

Leeds Country Way Relay 3 Sep

(Posted 8 Sep)

Well done to our 2 teams (24 runners) who enjoyed the thrill of racing around the trails and paths - and trying their best to follow the self guiding instructions. Our A team had the rare club distinction of handing the baton over within the cut off times, recording an excellent total time of 8:39:02. Unfortunately we don't have too many records of past events but in 2005 we managed a total time of 8:13:03 - a challenge for next year! If anyone has any records pre 2010, please let us know.

  • All tables now updated following the Tadcaster 10

  • Next event - Rother Valley parkrun - Saturday 23 September - could well be a few more pbs on this flat course.

  • Autumn Handicap is Sunday 15 October at Wintersett - more details shortly.

  • Yorkshire Coast 10k is on 22 October not the 29th as posted in the GP calendar.

  • Amended date for Pontefract parkrun - now 28 October to avoid having two events in 2 days,

  • 1st Peco Cross Country race is Sunday 26 November at Nostell Priory
