Meltham 10k 26Th Jan 2020

The run leaves the village and opens with a 2.5mile steady climb up a 100metres or so which stretches the field out before a sharp turn at South Crosland airfield (no planes flying today). The following short downhill section on past the observatory offers no real respite due to a buffeting wind, and then its onwards through another series of climbs (with icy rain now added to the wind) before dropping 100metres in the final speedy mile and a half, and on to a short stretch to the finish line.

72nd Graham Rhodes 45:58

183rd Philip Lickley 52:20

Northern XC Championship 25Th Jan 2020

This year the Northern Athletics XC Championships were held in the magnificent grounds of the Camp Hill Estate in Bedale, North Yorkshire. This was the first time NA have hosted an event here and were very much looking forward to trying out this new, impressive venue.

Once again Queensbury were in attendance albeit just 2 members mixing it with the Norths elite runners. Alistair Galt and Karl Holmes had good races over the 7.5 miles of deep mud and sicky terrain.

Well done lads

Parkrun 25Th Jan 2020

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.

WYWL Queensbury 19th Jan 2020

Once again it was Queensbury’s turn to host race 4 of this year’s WYWL fixture, a big shout out to Glenn and his team on the race committee for a successful event and also to all that helped on the day from setting up, the marshalls and the cleaning up of Littlemoor Park.

A 5 miler of mud and boggy ground helped by the consistent rain over the last few days meant for a tough race and a real thigh sapper.

Well done to Tom for taking his 1st win of the season and putting himself in control of the Mopen category, Paul Greenwood in 3rd place in the MV35’s, Mick Coe sitting pretty in 2nd in the MV50’s with Simon (3rd) just 7 points behind, Carl Heron 3rd in the MV55’s, Pete Hughes with another strong run keeping control of the M60’s but with Mark Crabtree in close pursuit and with Stacey in 1st place in the FV50’s things are looking good for QRC.

But as we all know it was all about the day and these races at QRC would not be possible without the help and hard work that goes into them behind the scenes, well done to Glenn, Jo, Jane, Angela, Helen and other helpers and vounteers.

Full results can be found in ‘files’ section on the WYWL FB page.

Brass Monkey Half Marathon 12th Jan 2020

The race is based at York Racecourse,
the route is fast and flat, heading southwards through Bishopthorpe, Acaster Selby, Appleton Roebuck and back through Bishopthorpe to finish behind the Racecourse grandstands. 

With the entries selling out within 30 minutes this really is a race for the serious runner and with 1500 places up for grabs things were hoting up well before the start.

3 of us headed to York last Sunday, luckily the predicted downpour didn’t happen and 40 minutes into the race the clouds disappeared which left is with ideal running conditions.

Well done to York Knavesmire Harriers on another successful event.
