WYWL Dewsbury 1St Dec 2019

Dewsbury made a comeback to WYWL this year, arguably the toughest course of the series (yes Glenn tougher than the ‘Beast’) with lots of mud and over 1000 feet of climbing, this course really does murder the legs.

A quick start whilst we were still watching the fancy dress competition meant an early fight for room, a quick lap (for some) of the field to spread us out and immediately into the 1st climb just half a mile in, from then on it was what felt like uphill all the way thorugh mus and bogs.

Overall 5th

Men 4th

Ladies 10th

Vets 4th

Super vets 1st

Well done all, next up is Pudsey on the 5th Jan see you all there.

Wesham 10k 30Th Nov 2019

The Wesham 10k is one of the North West’s oldest continually running 10k road races. Held every November, the race is slightly undulating, running around the lanes of Salwick and Lea Town. The first Wesham 10k race in 1986 was completed by 154 runners. Since then the event has grown continually and regularly attracts a good quality, large field of runners. The Wesham 10k has sold out weeks before race day every year since 2016 and is quickly becoming one of the most popular races in the North West.

Steve Brook entered this race, a race that he hasn’t run in 12 years, he raced home to a 42:08 back in 2007 finishing as 1st MV60, he still managed a quick 52:22 last Sunday.

We’ll done Steve

Parkrun 30th Nov 2019

With the weather taking a turn for the worse, numerous Parkruns were cancelled last Saturday including our planned awayday in Wakefield due to the icy conditions, nonetheless Horton Park, Storthes Hall and Brighouse entertained several of our members.

With just the one PB over the 3 courses it was ME!!!!!!!!! who managed to finally beat my 3 year old PB at Horton Park ably paced around by Paul and at times helped by Pete and Simon and yes Pete your cries of ‘come on’ and ‘hurry up’ made all the difference.

Awesome work guys, Neil you were awesome (I know Neil), congrats to all who made it out to run and thanks to Punt+Lickley (Plickley) for the photo’s, which can be found on Horton’s FB page.

We will be attempting Wakefield again on December’s awayday on the 21st.

Winter Championship Race 3 at Horton Parkrun 23Rd Nov 2019

A fantastic effort from the 34 members who made it to our latest race in the winter championship at Horton Park on a mild but damp Parkrun. A turnout like this makes all the effort worthwhile.

It really was a QRC takeover with us having 4 members in the 1st 5 places proving what results we can achieve when our fast guys are on fire.

Congrats to Tom (1st), Lynne Robinson (12th), Karl Holmes (15th) and Becky Gibb (75th) on their PB’s.

Well done to everybody including our supporters and photo takers on a great morning at Horton, hopefully we can get 34 of you at Wakefield next Saturday for our next awayday.

Awesome.

QRC massive

Chorley Fire 10k 17th Nov 2019

The event headquarters is the Lancahire Fire & Rescue Training Centre, a great undulating 10k route around the local villages of Euxton and Astley.

With this race clashing with the 1st WYWL race it was down to Steve Brook to make the journey on his own, this is a great little race with a good turnout every year. Steve managed a 52:59 and 1st MV70.

WELL DONE Stormin
