During November the up and coming race organisers RunAble team set up this event, a fantastic series of races starting the 3rd Nov for 3 weeks, a good local race starting and finishing in Brighouse, check them out on Facebook, we even have a discount code to use when entering their events ‘DR2021’
The 10k starting in Brighouse running out along Elland Rd reaching Elland then back on the riverside and canal bank, the 5k follows the same route but turns left down to the canal earlier on Elland Rd.
We had Jo Horan racing in the 10k’s and Giles Cook racing the 5k’s, both had a great 3 races with some good finish times, unfortunatly Jo had a moment in the 1st race and decided to run her own route therefore her result was classed as a DNF 🙈🙈🙈
A big thanks to Baildon for hosting the 1st race of this years series, very well marshalled and well organised event well done to you all.
A damp and blustery morning (so I’m told) 441 runners lined up for the 10.30 start. As it was last time out this years event started on the edge of the 18th fairway which helped to stretch the crowds out enabling runners to find their momentum and get into their stride. A hilly and sometimes technical course meant full concentration was required at all times to avoid any nasty falls.
A good turnout from Queensbury albeit with a few runners missing through injury and holidays meant a decent presence around the village.
Full team results below and excellent results they are, well done to everybody who took part
A hilly 10 mile course on a mixture of scenic country roads and well surfaced bridleway finishing in the stunning grounds of Ripley Castle. Giles Cook travelled over to Ripley near Harrogate coming away with a fantastic time on a tough course.
Giles ran a 1:38:17 finishing 543rd place from 741 finishers, well done Giles keep at you’re improving all the time.
This fast, undulating, road closed 10k race set at the beautiful Tatton Park in Cheshire and is a perfect opportunity to test yourself over the 10k distance and see how far your fitness has progressed over the year so far!
This was ‘It’s Grim Up Norths’ third trip of the year to the Leeds to Liverpool Canal (Kirkstall) As the name suggests, this is an out and back , a lovely flat route that’s perfect for a PB. This event had a Halloween theme but there was no pressure to dress up.
5 QRC members ran for Queensbury with Giles managing a fantastic 3rd overall, well done to you all
Just for now all your results are in 1 post, things will be back to normal once I stop gong on holiday. Well done to all who took part in a race over the weekend which I gather was very moist and windy, so big up the QRC massive. You’ve all seen the photo’s do I won’t bore you with more.
The Green Drive Five is a fast and accurately measured five mile race in Lytham St. Anne’s, suitable for both elite and slower runners. Starting and finishing in the attractive surroundings of Green Drive enhanced by the autumn colours, the course continues along Preston Road to reach the rural lanes around Warton. A flat course, this is a race that has allowed many to achieve PBs and this year it is incorporating the Lanchashire Championships.
With that in mind we set off and duly accepted the PB challenge.
