Bowling Park was the venue of today’s awayday and an awesome 20 of us turned up for that all important raffle ticket from Steve. Today was their 6th Parkrun and what a great course it is, pretty tough with a short steep climb.
With 3 PB’s and a course record to boot it was a great morning for QRC so well done to Phil Lickley (24.09), Steve Brook (25.36), Steve Wilby (31.51) and Tom Collinge (16.25 CR)
Our 10th fixture of our winter championship took us over to Roberttown for the Liversedge Half, in very windy conditions 10 QRCers took on this undulating half marathon.
The race run by Roberttown Road Runners is run annually in mid February. Runners leave the picturesque village green of Roberttown heading towards Liversedge before turning left and onto the main road crossing over the M62, then heading down to Balliff Bridge, before climbing back into Clifton and onto the long ascent back to the main road over the M62 taking a right and following the last 3 miles on country lanes and back in the village green.
Awesome running by all and well done if you achieved a PB, congrats to Martin on finishing as 1st MV60.

Well done the the 6 members who made it to Selby for our latest awayday, the flattest Parkrun in the country we were told by a lady from Selby Striders, to which Steve replied ‘ah well we’re the highest running club in the country’ you tell em Steve. Anyway after a quick swim you the start line off we went on this flat out and back course around the airfield, well done to Paul in taking 1st place.
Congrats to Lynne Robinson on her PB at Lister Park, great running.
