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.
Well done to Liane Warren for her back to back marathons over the weekend - 2nd lady at the Kirkstall Trail Marathon and 1st in her age category at Newcastle Town Moor Marathon. Roy Young also completed the double to add to his club record tally.

The draw for the London Marathon Club places took place - in order of luck the first 5 names out were Mick Knowles, Darren Horobin, Caroline Copeland, Julie Reeves and Dave Hughes. 49 names went into the hat.
Well done to Liane Warren for her epic 40m run on a treadmilll in Wakefield City Centre. She is raising finds for her 10 marathons in 10 days challenge next year -another £200 added on Saturday.
Her Garmin map won't show much!
We had two male teams and 1 female team thoroughly enjoying participating in the national XC relay championships. No medals but loads of satisfaction. The XC season is just gathering steam - plenty of opportunities for mass participation.
Well done to our Mens A team who finished 159th - Rich Ritucci, Terry Sinar, John Walters, John Roberts; our B team of Kevin Guttridge, Carl Britton, Tom Camponi and Paul Gallagher and our ladies team who finished 98th - Gail Wrangles, Nina Williams and Elly Roberts.
Ultra distance running seems to be catching! Simon Bennett and Tim Ashby tackled the tough moorland 60 mile course. Simon is an experienced ultra running and finished in 13th place. Tim was tackling his first ultra and did really well to pass the half way point before having to retire - his body had apparantly become deleted of alcohol and he was missing Gemma. Well done Tim - we know you'll not let it lie there! Mock Wigglesworth took the more sensible choice of the 30m route and fonished well.
The series starts on Sunday 26 November when we host the first event at Nostell Priory. We should have loads of runners and an army of volunteers participating in what should be a great event. Its too late to register for this race but you can still volunteer to marshal - see Denise Clark.
