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 & Priory 10k Entries Now Open

Summer Handicap Wednesday 27 June

(Posted 6 Jun)

Laila Milly Summer Saunter: 5 June

(Posted 6 Jun)

The inaugural event was superbly supported by members as runners, volunteers and organisers as well as our own Maya McCormack who set up the charity. A total of £780 was raised thrugh entry fees and raffle. The course was a bit tough and we really should have equipped Simon Newton with a machette to cut a path through the vegetation arounf the lake. Sunshine and a beer or two afterwards rounded off an excellent evenng - worth repeating!

Marathon Marathoners

(Posted 28 May)

Huge congratulations to Liane Warren, Roy Young and Simon Newton who have all achieved what most runners will get nowhere near!

Liane Warren completed the Brathay Challenge to run 10 marathons on 10 consecutive days. She was one of a group of 15 men and 5 women selected to participate and finished in 7th position overall on cumulative times. The consistency she achieved over the 10 days was remarkable with her fastest two runs being the last 2.

Roy Young completed the same course (Windermere) to register 150 marathons, even more amazing when he has done the last 113 since turning 60 (could this be a record in itself?) Will he stop now - rumour is he has another entered!)

Simon Newton travelled to Exeter and was rewarded with first place - which gets him a European trip to represent the Police force.


We should also note Simon Bennett's achievement in completing the 100 mile Thames path Ultra in a personal course record time. He was running the Grsand Union Canal 150 mile race at the weekend but unfortunately the overnight severe thunderstorms curtilaled his run at 85 miles.

The Coal Men!

(Posted 28 May)

Not content with running at Concord parkrun, Paul Lawrence and Richard Payne completed the Caphouse Colliery Bag of Coal run in hot conditions. It looked tough and to prove it, seek out the video on Facebook of Richard as he gritted his teeth and everything else to finish. Well done guys.

Brathay 10 in 10 Goole Handicap

This is usually the best attended of our handicap series and we welcome our friends from Goole Viking Striders. We will again be at Nostell Cricket Club - same course as last year, great Hog roast again afterwards (free) and hopefully the same glorious weather weve had over the last few years. This is a course for everyone - keep your diary free.

Following the successful use of Ackworth Cricket Club for our recent self-guided trail run with Rothwell Harriers, the Club Committee has investigated the possibility of making it our regular HQ for training nights. The cost of hiring the pavilion from the Parish Council has increased substantially since we first moved there and from 1 April rose by another £300 p.a. The cricket club can provide us with car parking, showers and changing and an on-site bar for those who wish to stay post training. It is available all year round and there is very little conflict with cricket matches. At last week’s Committee it was unanimously agreed that we make the cricket club our new HQ. The arrangement will hopefully benefit both clubs and reduce our costs.


We have now given notice to the Parish Council and the last training night at the pavilion will be Thursday 5th July. Tuesday 10th July will be our first training session from the cricket club. For those who are unfamiliar with the cricket club, it is behind the Boot & Shoe pub on Wakefield Road. The entrance drive to the car park is to the right hand side of the pub. A location map will be added to the web site.


Training days and times are unaffected.
