Well done to all that took part and especially to the 5 runners who achieved a PB. Steven Wilby again wins the award for the most exotic course, running at Dunedin Botanic Garden in New Zealand, which is a cool 11,789 miles away – phew!
Matt Fielding ran the White Rose Ultra at the weekend Matt says the weather was pretty damn hot by midday the toughest section of the course is one I am familiar with from competing in the Wessenden king of the hill event so I knew what to expect it just so happened to be at the 20 mile mark when most runners are hitting the wall and the hottest part of the day just to had to the pain.It took me 5hrs 47mins a fab event I would recommend this race to the club.
I ran at the Guy Fawkes 10 miler on Sunday the route is on quite roads conditions were nice and warm for the time of year the race was well organized and well marshalled overall a great race and a great day out also plenty of supporters all the way round which helps you to keep going highly recommended ..

Some members of our running club don’t half get about and recently Steve Wilby has been flying the QRC flag in Australia. The Parkrun phenomenon is slowly taking over the world, reaching as far as Albert Park in Melbourne, where Steve ran last weekend. This is not, I hasten to add, Albert Parkrun in Middlesborough, but somewhere much more exotic.
The course is just over one full lap of the lake on a loose, gravelly surface and is only a stone’s throw away from where the Australian Grand Prix is held. Steve powered his way to a time of 26:26, earning him 148th position out of 331 participants.
On the following day, Steve went on to complete the Spring into Shape 10K, which is a 2-lap course surrounding the River Yarra. The path runs down one side of the river, crossing over a bridge, up the other side and over another bridge and back to the start and repeat. Unusually, there were many more ladies than men running, with organisers providing separate results for male and female. Steve achieved a great time of 54:29 for 62nd place out of 102 men and there were 172 ladies. Temperatures were in the high 20s, but luckily much of the course was shaded.
The question is: where will he find himself next?

Well done to all of you.
Gary Morritt travelled to Rochdale to race the Tandle Hill Trail Race last weekend this race is a tough 5.8 mile with some very steep hills that take you up to the monument with steps to the top then back down the steep hill and round the country park to the finish.
Gary finished in 84th position .
