Run Bolton Abbey is an exciting new trail-running event, sponsored by Midgley Motor Cars, with a choice of distances to suit runners of all abilities. Whichever you choose, run for Manorlands Hospice!
There was a choice of a 10K, 10 mile, half marathon or two-mile fun run.
This was a unique opportunity to run on exclusive parts of the estate not usually accessible to the public and we guarantee the autumnal colours will be stunning!
About the routes
The routes were on a mixture of paths, tracks, woodland trails and open land. “Run through Strid Wood, over Dicken Dike, climb the Valley of Desolation and the Launde Plantation and take on a stretch of Barden Fell. A diverse range of surfaces and stunning landscapes all crammed into one challenging run. All routes started and finished at the Cavendish Pavillion Car Park, with the added benefit of chip-timing.
Well done to the 3 of you that took part in the 10k race.

The 6th and final race of the series headed over to Spenborough for a 5.2 mile multi terrain race. Starting on the track after our 2 minute, sorry!! 1 minute silence, it was a quick (for some) lap and a half of the track to spread the filed out then out onto the roads and tracks of the surrounding area. A fantastic little course not overly demanding but enough to keep you on your toes, with a 250 metre sprint on the track to finish it really is a great course.
As is the norm in the YVAA race series the results are available pretty much as you cross the line. Well done to the time keepers and the organisers for what has been a tough season. Lets hope the series gets back on it’s feet to avoid any mishaps next year.
And onto the final results after scores have been totted up by the YVAA and what a fantastic results for QRC with 4 out of 6 races to count.
Immy taking the MV35 title by 6 points from Rich Allen of Pudsey, awesome stuff Immy.
Andy Stott finishing 2nd overall in the MV45’s, behind Gavin Mulholland no shame in that. Well done Andy great running.

One of the UK’s well known, popular 10k’s, the Leeds Abbey Dash was back for its 32nd year of running and the organisers were hoping for it to be the best yet. The 10k route is perfect for beginners and experienced runners alike, due to it’s flat, PB busting course.
The race, which incorporated the 2017 England Athletics 10km Championships, continued its reputation as one of the best-quality 10km events in Britain as the first 15 men broke 30 minutes on chip time. A total of 31 athletes finished inside 31 minutes, while the top eight women were all inside 34 minutes
The course starting on Wellington Street, heads out of the city along Kirkstall Rd to the Abbey, where runners turn and head back past the TV studio’s, over the flyover and onto the Headrow to finish in front of the town hall steps cheered on by hundreds of spectators lining the finish area.
Well done all QRCers who took part and I hope you enjoyed your racing.

BRING THE FAMILY, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO
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.
