Club Weekend 2016!

We have strong interest in next year's Club Weekend in the Lake District which comprises a stay at Rydall Hall  (camping or bunk house) and participation in the Grasmere Gallop on the Saturday. Those who are up to it could also do the Coniston Half Marathon on the Sunday. It promises to be a superb social weekend with a bit of running. Already 50 names down - space still available.


Our organiser, Mel Owen does need a £10 deposit by 10th August to cover accommodation - race entry is on an individual basis.

We had a representative team in the Golden Acre Park Relay on the 22nd - aptly self named "2 Old Cocks and a Spring Chicken" - not in any particular order -Adrian Leach, Mick Knowles and Lee Hopkins. Each leg was 2.75m. They came a commendable 72nd of 143 teams and 8/12 in the Vets.  The following day saw either 2 old cocks or an old cock and a spring chicken participate in the Saltaire Shaker!

Leeds Country Way Relay: 6 Sep

This is the 24th year of this popular team relay following a 64 mile route along the Leeds Country Way. There are 6 legs of around 9-11 miles which is run by pairs - both having to finish their leg before handing over to the next pair. Teams of 12 (6 pairs) can be all male, all female or mixed. The legs are largely off road and take in a variety of paths, trails and ups and downs. The route is not marshalled - you are given written directions - although many members have knowledge of the routes. A recci run is advisable!

Gail Wrangles and Denise Clark are organising teams and recci runs. We are not limited to the number of teams we can enter and hope to have at least 3 (that's 36 committed runners as a minimum). This is open to all members, whatever their experience, but you do need to be able to complete a reasonably challenging 9 miles minimum. Teams generally take between 7 and 13 hours to complete the 64 miles! Last year our A team took 9hrs 20 mins and our B team 11 hrs 15 mins.

Cost is £10 per person - a great memento to all participants and food at the conclusion of the day. You don't have to commit to all day! The first pair start at 8am from Garforth. They have until 10 am to cover the 11.75 miles to the 1st changeover point in Stanley to hand the baton over. If any team fails to reach the changeover within the time, the next pair will be set of at 10:00. There are cut off times for each leg and what generally happens is that more and more teams fall behind the clock. It doesn;t matter - you would know what the latest time would be that you would start your leg. Confused? Don't worry - we have plenty of experence in sorting.

Full details of the event can be found HERE


If you want to be included, please let Gail or Denise know at training or email the club. A number of people have already said yes - Gail/Denise will be in touch to collect money and advise on recci runs which will start from next Sunday (2nd August).
