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.
A hilly 10 mile course on a mixture of scenic country roads and well surfaced bridleway finishing in the stunning grounds of Ripley Castle. 4 of our on form runners travelled over to Ripley near Harrogate with all coming away with fantastic times on a tough course.

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??).
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.
