Following a meeting our Joglers are now doing a shorter version running from the Scottish Border at Berwick back to Ackworth. They are setting off Saturday morning and plan to be back in Ackworth in time for Tuesday training. Plenty of great coastline to take in on the way home.
Group tempo runs
5 members have already booked their flights for a run (half marathon) in the sun (hopefully) towards the end of the year. Anyone else fancing going as a club party? Air fares are currently very good - Monarch from Leeds/Bradford cheapest. The race is on a Saturday. Flights from Leeds on the Thursday currently £56. flights back available on Monday or Thursday for £49 (both exclude baggage - about another£40-50 for return journey). Those going already are returning on the Thursday. We can sort accommodation out in due course - should be reasonable at the time of year. Interested? Speak to Stewart or Ken Barton (Ken is currently in Lanzarote for a month doing a recci!).
Out teams appear to have been a little depleted due to injury and marathon training, however those who endured the muddy conditions enjoyed the morning. Report now available under Cross Country tab
Revised tables now published following the Liversedge Half - check them out under the Club Events Sub menu. Craig Tipton now heads both men's leagues whilst Becci Winter heads the Ladies Open and Janet Davis the Ladies Age Adjusted.
The bad news is that their won't be a club weekend to Tissington this year - the good news is we are looking to make it a day trip by coach. 40 places have been reserved as a coach/race entry package - names to Stewart please plus £5 deposit - non refundable but transferable. First come first served!
Wednesday night at the DOROTHY HYMAN TRACK SERIES saw 4 of our members run round the track endless times to complete the 10k. Joe Leach recorded a massive new pb of 41:47 and Club record for his age category. Richard Smart was a little unlucky in matching his pb. Adrian Leach and Gail Wrangles both had decent times. NB age performance % on the track are lower than on the road, however the times are the same.
PONTEFRACT PARKRUN #144 attracted 32 members in the field of 242 on a great morning for running. Neil Holt had an impressive run to finish 4th in a new personal course record time of 18:59. He was closely followed in by Lyndon Bilton in a year best time of 19:10 (6th) and Simon Newton (7th). Simon was perhaps saving himself for the Silverstone Half. Adrian Byrom recorded a "Decade PB" of 20:49 - not sure if an all-time pb as he can't remember that far back! Gail Wrangles was our first lady finisher in 23:39. Year best times were also claimed by Eddie Neale, Glyn Jones, Stewart Haigh, Vicky Holt, Paul Law, Mel Owen and Andrew Martin. Again good to see Barry Sinar. Just a reminder that you can bring your youngsters along if you accompany them around - its really rewarding for them - and you can run slower unless you're called Leach!
Talking of Leach - Adrian and Joe went along to the inaugural FOUNTAINS ABBEY PARKRUN along with distant unrelated cousin Guy Leech. Stunning scenery (don't mean our boys).
The Spanish sunshine and Martyn Stearn go hand in hand - as do prizes and Martyn. This time he finished the ELCHE 10k as 2nd M60 on the hilly course. Martyn's WAVA score was 79.6% - a fantastic achievement.
Our 2nd claim member, Simon Newton finished 12th out of a field of 6,930 at the SILVERSTONE HALF MARATHON recording a time of 1:17:26 in wet and windy conditions. Brilliant run Simon.
The NORTON 9 attracted just 4 members due to the numbers doing Peco and Marathon training. Its a shame considering our long-standing relationship with the event. Syam Velayudhan was our first finisher, follwed home by Paul Law, Martin Overton and Ron Dyson.
John Booth took on the HAWESWATER HALF MARATHON in windy and rainy conditions
Results starting to come in - our Ladies team has done particularly well and some great individual performances - Preliminary Results to date
