One more to go Karol!

Fourteen park runners took part in four local runs on Saturday. Two fine personal bests by Rocky Brook and Simon Thomas at Halifax. Karol Whettlock completed her 99th park run and Stacey Cleal chalked up her 129th. For those of us still to reach double figures those are remarkable achievements.

Fourteen runners turned out for Saturday’s park run at six different locations including Steve Searle and Richard Brook who surfaced at Sewerby in East Yorkshire. The QRC Parkrunners of the week are Chris Hanson who recorded a PB at Oakwell Hall in 25.33 and Andy Dovernor who is getting quicker every week with a fantastic 19.00 at Halifax. Well done to all who ran and thanks to all the volunteers too!

Podium 5K………in 16 minutes

Chris Williams recorded an outstanding personal best in the Podium 5K race near Colne at the weekend. He clocked 16:00 minutes dead beating his previous pb by one second set last year at the John Carr 5K. Most of us mere mortals can only dream of running at a pace of 03.12 mins per km or 05.09 mins per mile; actually, only a few hundred people in the entire nation have run a quicker 5K than that in 2015. Chris was 11th in a race that featured many of the quickest runners in the north west (the winning time was 14:58). The slowest runner in the ‘A’ race completed the course in 17:19 which is still a fantastic time. Chris also triumphed over Jonathan Johnson (Harrogate Harriers) who beat him into second place in the West Yorkshire 5 mile road race last week. Well done to Chris. We look forward to a sub-16 minute run in the next race!DSC_4853The full results are here.

Saltburn 10K

HMSALT 1_0499
Mary on the Saltburn Trail

Mary Saunders, who recently joined the club, ran in the Saltburn 10K in North Yorkshire on Sat 15th August. Recent illness interfered with her training plans but she still managed a good time, finishing in 1:17.36 and in about 18th place overall (10th woman). Mary also raised £280 for the Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association. Here is her report:

 

The race was really small – there was a trail marathon (probably longer than a marathon!), a trail half marathon (that was about 16 miles), as well as the trail 10K and participation was capped at 300 across all three races – this meant for a really nice relaxed atmosphere – I think there were maybe 40 runners tops in the 10K.

 

The race started, in glorious sunshine, on the main road outside the Leisure Centre and continued to, and then down, the wooded sides of the Skelton Beck clough (where we all got lost), down to the sea front, past the Ship Inn and up an evil set of quad destroying steps! Then it was about 3km of more gradual climbing following the Cleveland Way, right along the top of the cliffs, on the edge of the wheat fields. We made our way along the side of the railway, before crossing it (lovely cheery marshals), up a hill, through a cow field and then turned back for the descent, crossing the railway again and following a series of tracks back down to the bottom of the steps. We then retraced our steps back up the clough and along the road, finishing in the sports hall. In total it was 11.99km (surprise, surprise!) and about 775 feet of ascent. 

 

There were medals and t-shirts for all finishers, trophies for the top three in the main categories and a fine spread of home bakes and drinks etc laid on in the hall. The shower and changing facilities were all very fancy too! The race is now moving to February due to car parking etc so I think I will have to enter again to better my time….

West Yorkshire 5 mile road race

Well done to the eight runners who took part in the West Yorkshire 5, particularly those who also completed a Park Run the day before. Described by Maria Rhodes as ‘good, hard fun’, this is a local race organised by the West Yorkshire Fire Service and Bradford Airedale. Chris Williams earned a fine 2nd place to Jonathan Johnson (Harrogate Harriers). The women’s race was won by UK Net Runner, Hannah Oldroyd in 31.11.

Yorkshire Veterans Athletic Association (YVAA) results

West Vale (21st July) and Knavesmire (5th August) Results

 

Congratulations to those who have competed in one or both of the last two YVAA races. Great running from Stacey Cleal with identical times over the tricky and hilly West Vale course and the flat tarmac and tracks of the Knavesmire course. A fine 2nd and 4th place in her age group respectively. Mick Coe had a great run at West Vale on the kind of course he thrives on. He travelled to Knavesmire with a sore knee and decided to pull out just after the start. Carl, Andy and Graham ran both races. Graham was placed 4th in his age group in both races and just outside the prizes. Chris Rushworth was unlucky too. In the Knavesmire race a marshal went AWOL and he took a wrong turn along with several others. QRC life member and former club chair, Steve Jones, joined us in York too. The final race of the Grand Prix series takes place at Spenborough on November 8th.

Saltaire Shaker

 

SS3

The 4th Saltaire Shaker took place on Sunday 26th July. There was a fantastic turnout from the club for the 15km race, mainly along the Leeds-Liverpool canal towpath but with a couple of detours along wooded paths.

 

Leading the team home was Matt Thornton in 1.09:34 (34th), followed by Neil Windle in 1.13:03 (53rd), Ben Charlesworth in 1.16:53 (77th), Glenn Thornton in 1.24:41 (114th), Daniel Moore in 1.31:53 (148th), Sharon Loughran in 1.36:24 (173rd), Dianne Simpson in 1.37:28 (175th) and Andy Smith in 1.39:32 (182nd). Mary Saunders, who has been training with the club, was 147th in 1.30:47. Well done to everyone for some great performances.

 

The race was won by Rob James in 54:48 who finished just ahead of some of Otley AC’s best runners. He is listed as unattached but he’s a class athlete who has competed internationally at the 110 metre hurdles in the past. The first female runner was Jennie Guard (Leeds City AC) who was 14th overall in 1.04:09.

Airedale Athletics Summer Challenge

Lee Hipwell at Reservoir Bogs
Lee Hipwell at Reservoir Bogs

Matt Fielding and Lee Hipwell both ran excellent times in misty conditions at Reservoir Bogs (20 June), a Calder Valley race which can only be navigated on the hoof because the route is changed each year.  Lee ran strongly throughout to finish in 1:20:34 and Matt made up more than 20 places between the first checkpoint and the finish to complete the course in 1:06:59. The winner (James Logue, 0:50:27) was 8 minutes ahead of a group of ten finishing together, so the Queensbury times are a fantastic achievement.

Matt and Lee are 17th and 18th individuals in the challenge (Mick Coe and Graham Jowett 4th and 5th).  The next fixtures are the Baildon Canter (11 July), Widdop (15 July) and Holme Moss (19 July).  They’re very different races – details are on the fixtures tab with the full points table here.  Baildon is a lovely three mile run over the moor followed by a junior race on a bracken-covered slope.  The junior event is great for all from keen, fast junior runners to younger children who can go round with their parents.  Please click here for details.
