Humpday 5+10K’s 3Rd, 10Th, 17Th Nov 2021

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 🙈🙈🙈

WYWL Baildon Race 1, 7th November 2021

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

Wadsworth Trog 14Th Nov 2021

A local classic taking in all the best terrain of the full Trog, without the full distance. Plenty of varied tough terrain and perhaps a bit of mud!!!!

Partially flagged race route over 9.3 miles and 1400ft of clumbing.

Carl Heron was out on the moors racing for Queensbury finishing well in 1:38:30 and 49th place, well done Carl

Windmill 10k 14Th Nov 2021

A fast and flat course on the coastal front of Lytham, starting on Lytham Green next to the Windmill itself. A two minute silence was observed before the start of the race for Remembrance Sunday.

Steve Brook finished in a very fast 49:57, 4th V70 in 269th position

Well done Steve

Guy Fawkes 10 7th November 2021

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.

Green Drive 5 24th Oct 2021

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.

33rd Andy Dovernor 31:21 (PB + 3rd MV50)

45th Neil Windle 32:56 (PB + 45’s Club Record)

76th Jo Fortune 36:00 (PB + 4th FV35)

95th Terri Mason 37:16 (PB, 5th FV45 + 45’s Club record)

Well done us, teamwork makes the dream work
