The first event of the 2016/17 season is on 27 November at Temple Newsam. This does however clash with the Barnsley 10k - a Grand Prix event. There is nothing we can do about this so its down to individual choice. Other dates are 18 December, 22 January, 19 February and 5th March.

Ackworth Half Marathon 22 April

Many thanks to all who helped out in the preparation for this year's event and the army of volunteers on the day who contributed to a super day. We've received many complimentary email and posts. It may not be the biggest event but its certainly one of the best. Full results HERE


London Marathon 28 April

15 members featured in this year's event and did themselves and the club proud. Our support party also played a huge part in making it a memorable weekend. First home was Terry Forrest in a superb time of 2:31:22 and our first lady was Sarah Hunter in a new pb time of 3:12:15.


Well done to Carl Britton and Zoe Cox in completing their first marathon and to Tom Camponi who overcame injury and a non functioning timing chip, to complete the course with his usual sprint finish. Dave Fitzgerald was also off the radar having lost his timing chip (on the tracker it was just by the start but we couldn't get a message to him to go back and pick it up!). Wonder if we'll get 250 names in the hat for next year's club places!)


We had approaching 80 runners turn out in support of Sarah Powala's fundraising for Wakefield Hospice. Despite the damp weather and disintegrating instruction sheets, we managed to get all 27 teams back. They all managed to record somewhere near the 10k distance, some even went the right way - others didn't!

Your generosity contributed £260 to Sarah's Challenge total.


Another superb social event - check out the video on our Facebook page.

Sarah is continuing to run a 10k every day in May - why not join her when you can.
