QRC Racing Down Under

steve down under 2 steve-down-underSome 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?

Airedale Athletics Off-Road Winter Challenge

Lynne Robinson on her way to a good finish at Withins Skyline

After the first race,the Withins Skyline, Queensbury are second in the team league to Baildon.  The Baildon team was particularly impressive at Withins: one of their runners was so determined to finish that she completed the last half of the course with a broken leg and their large points score could not be better deserved.  Nevertheless all three Queensbury competitors did well, with Alistair Gale and Lynne Robinson making impressive debuts for the club.

The next races are Cop Hill (1 November) and the Wadsworth Half Trog, an opportunity for Joker double points on 8 November. Please click here for full club and individual scores and the complete list of fixtures.  There’s a variety of races through the winter on trail and fell; If you do any of them your points will automatically count in both the club and individual leagues.

Many congratulations to Mick Coe, who won the individual trophy for the summer season.
