A perfect introduction to off-road running in the idyllic setting of St Aidan’s Country Park in the east of Leeds, and an ideal race to test your speed.
The East Leeds 10K is fast and flat(ish): the trails are well-defined, public footpaths and bridleways in and around the Country Park. Starting by St Aidan’s RSPB Visitor Centre, the route crosses and follows the River Aire to Lemonroyd Marina, before circling the Country Park back to the beginning.
Well done to Craig Bingham who finished 99th in 46:54.
A popular summers evening 10km road race around the moorland roads of Greetland near Halifax. Very scenic and always attracts a large field. This years race also incorporated the YVAA championship.
The route is one small loop of 3k and a large loop of 7k, starting and finishing at Greetland Rugby Club. The race has been run in reverse for the last 2 years for safety reasons so all runners now face oncoming traffic.
9 of us headed over on what turned out to be a good night for racing, with Chris Williams leading us all home with an outstanding 2nd place and Lee Shaw also getting 1st MV35.
Dianne Simpson, Michelle Greenwood and Sharan Loughran all travelled to the Richard Dunn sports Centre to take part in a sprint triathlon, this was Michelle and Sharan’s 1st attempt at Triathlon and all 3 managed to successfully finish.
The race consisted of a 400 metre swim, 10km cycle, and a 5 or 10km run, all 3 ladies choosing the 5km run.
30th Dianne Simpson 1:08:05
36th Michelle Greenwood 1:15:34
38th Sharan Loughran 1:21:44
Well done ladies I bet it was fun, something I’m going to TRI soon.
Well done to Andy Dovenor for taking on the Ripon Triathlon, an Olympic distance event featuring a 1500 metre swim, 40km cycle ending with a 10km run. Andy managed a very nippy 2:19:16 a PB by over 9 minutes. finishing 188th place from a full field of 1046 and 35th in his age category.
Unfortunately Teri had the misfortune of getting knocked off during the cycle element sustaining a broken collarbone and a few ribs. Andy and Teri would like to pass their thanks to the lady from Wakey who helped her to her feet.
Congratulations to Rachael, Joanne and Julie who ran the Halifax Half yesterday a tough 13.1 miler with over 1600ft of climbing.
From leaving Dean Clough runners have their 1st climb within 100 metres up to Shroggs Road, before steadily climbing to the bottom of Brackenbed Lane, up they went again turning right at the top, then left and onto Moor End Road, which again is a tough climb to the top, following Moor End Road until turning right onto Clough Lane and the sprint through Mixenden, out of Mixy up Mill Lane taking a left onto White Gate, left at the top and slight downhill before a quick right at the bottom and up Rocks Lane, it is roughly here at the 6/7mile mark that Ned Hell Rd awaits them, ready to dish out some more punishment, then passing the Ragalds, onto Roper Lane, left onto Swales Moor Road, right onto Claremont Rd, down Mill Lane and back to Dean Clough.

A very tough race ladies, outstanding stuff from you all.
Now in its 25th year, the Eccup 10 is happy to support the Hollybank Trust. Last year’s course tweaks are retained including the faster finish straight, but it still takes in the rural closed roads in and around Eccup that make this Leeds most popular 10 mile road race!
Well done to all that raced yesterday and we hope you all enjoyed your run around this lovely area of Leeds.
The Alderley Edge bypass opened in 2010 after decades of local campaigning to relieve Alderley Edge and Nether Alderley of the heavy through traffic, particularly at peak times. To celebrate its completion, a 5-mile race was held. Organised by Wilmslow Running Club in conjunction with several local organisations, it was to be a one off event before the cars began to role. Run North West founder Andrew Whittingham ran in that 2010 event and loved the experience of a race on a closed road that seemed ideally suited to running. The event in July was a big success for a new race and attracted 875 entries. Repeat feedback was that it was a shame the road was too short for a 10k. So after the race, Andrew started to look at ways to turn the bypass 5 mile into a 10k. The answer was to start the race 400m off the bypass and so with an additional road closure approval we have achieved the wish of many of our participants.
Our very own Victoria Trudgill ran superbly, racing in her 1st 10k, Victoria has only been running since March so to finish in a super fast time of 53:13 is a remarkable achievement. Keep up the training and you never know a sub 50 may happen soon.
After four events the positions have a familiar look at the top: Rob Myers leads on 55pts (448.4 total), with Jim Wheldon on 49pts (392.2) and Ian Hartman on 35pts (251.5).
The leading ladies are placed next: Kate Walter on 31pts (205.0), Debbie Bland on 21pts (109.0) and Michelle Woodrow on 20pts (97.8).
