An exciting trail-running event with a choice of distances
There is a choice of a 10K, 10 mile, half marathon or two-mile fun run. The routes are on a mixture of paths, tracks, woodland trails and open land. “Run through Strid Wood, over Dicken Dike, climb the Valley of Desolation and the Launde Plantation and take on a stretch of Barden Fell. A diverse range of surfaces and stunning landscapes all crammed into one challenging run.
The Loughran’s had a family day out with John, Sharan James and Matthew all having a good run out.
Sharon Loughran 1:23:08 in the 10k, unfortunatly I can’t find any results for the John, Mathew and James.
The 9th and final race of the series headed over to Spenborough for a 5.2 mile multi terrain race. Starting on the track after a 1 minute silence, it was a quick (for some) lap and a half of the track to spread the filed out then out onto the roads and tracks of the surrounding area. A fantastic little course not overly demanding but enough to keep you on your toes, with a 250 metre sprint on the track to finish it really is a great course.
Some great racing over the season with some amazing performances by everyone. Well done to Stacey for winning the FV50 title, Simon Brady for 3rd place in the MV50’s, Carl Heron and Andy Dove both finished top 5 in their respective age categories.
This is the ninth year of the Burley Moor Run, the run started at Scalebor Park Pavilion at 10am and goes onto Burley Moor, an entirely off road course of about 11K and has a main ascent of some 800ft. The course uses well trodden paths and tracks, but by the very nature of moor land, some sections are steep and uneven.
Well done to our very own man machine Ben Clare for taking on a fell race, that in his own words was not ready for.
Ben finished 66th in just over the hour mark with a 1:00:23.
I n race 3 of our winter champs 7 hardy QRCers took on this very challenging fell race superbly organised by Todmorden Harriers.
The race race featuring 10km of fells with more ups and downs than a roller coaster attracts athletes from of some of the area’s top fell and road running clubs. Starting at the Shepherds Rest Inn Todmorden it’s an uphill start to Gaddings Dam across the Skyline, around Stoodley Pike down into the valley followed by a killer climb back upto to meet the outgoing path to follow the same route back towards the finish.

One of the UK’s well known, popular 10k’s, the Leeds Abbey Dash was back for its 33rd year of running and the organisers were hoping for it to be the best yet. The 10k route is perfect for beginners and experienced runners alike, due to it’s flat, PB busting course.
The race, which incorporated the 2018 England Athletics 10km Championships, continued its reputation as one of the best-quality 10km events in Britain as the first 7 men broke 30 minutes on chip time. A total of 32 athletes finished inside 31 minutes, while the 1st lady home smashed out a 33:30.
The course, starting on Wellington Street heads out of the city along Kirkstall Rd to the Abbey, where runners turn and head back past the TV studio’s, over the flyover and onto the Headrow to finish in front of the town hall steps cheered on by hundreds of spectators lining the finish area.
Well done all 20 QRCers who took part and we hope you enjoyed your racing.
