Garthering Winter Fools 16th Dec 2017

Entries are now open for this race, currently we have 3 teams to entering so far, Dan Moore was trying to raise a 4th team but did not have the response required.

So this is your last chance, if you’d like to join the fun and you can muster 8 runners together (2 on each leg) then your welcome to enter a 4th team, the more the merrier, all you’ll need is a team captain and a love for running through mud, if you think your not good enough don’t worry it’s all a bit of fun.

The club will pay the £40 entry fee for all QRC teams.

BRING THE FAMILY, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO

Shepherds Skyline 4th Nov 2017

The Shepherds Skyline Fell Race is a popular event.  A warm up for bonfire night along this fast, muddy course – with a steep descent off Stoodley Pike for the kamikaze descenders, immediately followed by a stiff climb back up the hill. Featuring 350m of ascent over 10km this is definitely a race for the serious runner. Luckily for us we have Mick and Stacey who for some unknown reason like running up steep hills, well done both of you great stuff and keep it up.

The Holmfirth 15 mile race is an undulating historic 2 lap course with this years race incorporating the Yorkshire Veterans AA 15 Mile Road Race Championships.

Yorkshire Coast 10k 22nd Oct 2017

A 10k race which is almost flat with a massive 25m of climb throughout, starting at the Spa Complex in Scarborough, heading North around the the Castle Headland, past the miniture railway station, turning at the Sea Life Centre runners then headed back to the Spa Complex to finish.  

The weekend also featured 2 fun run courses of 2.5km and 1.6km allowing all the family to take part and enjoy the atmosphere.

Richard and Steve Brook made their annual pilgrimage to Scarborough to take part in the 10k, and been the thoughtful duo that they are, allowed their families to watch (at least it wasn’t windy). Both had great runs considering the windy weather with Richard finishing in 42.20, followed by Steve in 55:45. 

In the fun run Shelley Fernerhough ran with her son and managed a pretty nifty 6.10 in the 1.6k and 13:55 in the 2.5k (I think somebody should be moving up a group??).

Well done to you all.

Keleder 10k 7th October 2017

Come and Beat the Bull! Claimed the organisers. The Kielder 10K was raced around the stunning Bull Crag Peninsula of Kielder Water, runners enjoyed the stunning scenery and quite possibly one of the most beautiful 10k’s in the country. 

A big up for Simon Thomas who on return from injury ran an impressive 55.32 finishing 8th in the MV60 category helped on the way by his 2 sons.

Well done Simon and hope the recovery continues. 

 

The highest running club in England, probably.
