Manchester 10k 7Th JULy 2019

The 2019 UKFast City of Manchester 10k race starts and finishes at the impressive Etihad Stadium, with hundreds of well-wishers cheering you on as you run out from the Regional Athletics Track and out onto closed roads in the area. The UKFast City of Manchester 10k route will bring you back into the complex before finishing back on the track, having raced this event before I can vouch for the great route and friendly atmosphere.

Well done to Gillian Jago on another impressive run, Gillian managed to finish 12th in her age category in a time of 52:29.

Well done lass, no photo’s at the moment

Heptenstall Fell Race 6Th June 2019

Starting in the hilltop village of Heptonstall, the route plunges deep into a neighbouring valley before finding its way to the top of a nearby peak. It then returns in similar fashion. So yes, that does mean you finish with an almighty uphill struggle.There’s a right mix of terrain. Cobbles to start with then some grassy fields, muddy slopes, rocky bridleway and open moorland, some of it pathless.

Featuring over 1600 feet of climbing over 5.9 miles make this category ‘A’ fell race one of toughest locally.

Well done to andy Smith and Ben Clare for taking it on.

46th Ben Clare 66:43

95th Andy Smith 91:22

Well done lads.

Endure 24 29Th June 2019

So you think you have it bad running for an hour or so, then not running until 2 days later, spare a thought for 2 QRC’ers who thought it would be fun to do as many 5 mile laps in 24 hours as they could.

Vicky Trudgil and Lee Shaw showed up at Branham Park, Leeds for this event which is growing in popularity year on year, the race starts at 12pm on the Saturday and runners can enter as a team of upto 8 or run in pairs or solo.

1st up we had Lee who with a couple of pals from other clubs racked up 195 miles between them with what started as a 5 but soon dropped to 4, with Lee managing to complete 45 of their miles.

Vicky who clearly has no friends (jokes yeah) entered as a solo and had a family weekend and racked up just under 35 miles over the 24hrs, ‘absolutely fantastic’ said Gary Barlow, a brilliant achievement Vicky congrats from us all.

Well done to both and f you fancy a shot at it next year have a chat with Vicky or Julie H. as they are trying to put a QRC team together, I believe boys maybe allowed too.

Halifax Marathon 30Th June 2019

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. 

Martin Firth and Joanna Lockwood were our only runners this year, but they did superbly on such a tough course with Martin storming the Marathon in an incredible 3:27:52 and 2nd place overall with Joanna finishing as 3rd lady in super quick 1:56:16 (Strava) in the half distance and a PB by 7 seconds

Well done to you both, great stuff.
