Ripon 10 mile.

This was the final of the club winter series and sadly only 3 of us travelled to Ripon for this scenic race. Blyth also had this in their GP and had a minibus full. (Note to self if anyone says a race is scenic it means big hills or something like a bog to plodge through). In this case, the race is “undulating” and “scenic”. It ascends on farm track and then Continue Reading →

Fairfield Horseshoe Race 2017

Matt reports: A drive over to the Lakes plagued by heavy rain didn’t exactly spark enthusiasm for the day ahead however by the time we were parked in the race car park at Rydal, the showers had become significantly lighter. The thick cloud on the hills seemed set to persist though and the half-mile walk between car and race registration gave ample time to consider what the grey murk loitering Continue Reading →

The Pendulum 2017

Cheviot/Hedgehope Pendulum Race 2017 In contrast to the arctic conditions on the tops that seemed to characterise the 2016 race, the snow did not make a return for this year’s Pendulum. Instead, the 61 runners who gathered in the stunning Harthope Valley on Sunday were met with clear, sunny conditions albeit with a strong, cold wind. Fortunately, the wind was an Easterly so on our backs for the up-hills and Continue Reading →
