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.

This week saw an impressive 16 Queensbury RC runners participate at a total of 7 different courses, including the inaugural run at Horton Park.

The club even has representation across the pond, as Stephen Brook ran a Parkrun in Orlando, Florida. Where was my invite, might I ask?!

Keep up the good work everyone!

Parkrun Results: 23/05/2015

This week saw 10 Queensbury RC runners participate at 3 different courses. Next week, Bradford will see another Parkrun course added to its portfolio – Horton Park. The course should provide a good challenge as runners make their way 3.5 times around the undulating course. Well done to all that took part.

John Carr 5k #3

Yesterday evening saw the third and final race of the John Carr series (all together now: “awwwwwwh!”), but cry not fellow runners, for there are only about 349 days until we can revisit our favourite waste water treatment works to compete in the 2016 edition. Queensbury Running Club had a truly fantastic turnout to the event, so to all those who took part: thank you for doing our club proud!

This week saw 9 Queensbury RC runners participate at 3 different courses. There were also a number of club members stepping in as volunteers at the Shroggs Park course in Halifax, with Martin Firth at the helm as race director. The event coincided with the one-year anniversary of the beginner’s group at QRC and baked treats were  in plentiful supply at the park.

John Carr 5k #2

Abbie Cleal at the John Carr #2
Abbie Cleal: First Female Junior

It was 5 AM and a blanket of tranquility rested gently over the city of Bradford. Dawn broke whilst most slept, unaware of its resident birds beginning to sing their songs with the most sedulous care; the birds themselves, in turn, blissfully unaware that the forthcoming day would be host to the second John Carr 5k race. Had they known, they would have fallen straight off their perches.

As the day progressed and the event drew ever closer, many competitors would be beginning to experience the onset of pre-race nerves: a racing heart, sweating, the shakes… The explosive start to the first race of the series would have done nothing to help, nor would the flashbacks of a stiff headwind. PBs were however plentiful and aspirations were consequently set high for the following two runs.

But wait: #ConeTooClose! It has transpired that the course of the first race was shy of the full 5 km and the halfway-cone was to be set a few paces further out to compensate, extending the course by 100 metres by my reckoning, which is an additional 20 seconds of running at a 20:00 5k pace. With the calmer conditions but a longer course, how would the Queensbury runners fare?
