Southport 10k 5Th Sept 2021

The race is 2 laps around Marine Lake and Ocean Plaza, taking in the model railway, Silcock’s fun land, PleasureLand and the pier. With only 75ft of elevation, and closed roads along Marine Drive, it promised to be a fast and fun course.

Steve Brook had a trip out for this scenic 10k and finished superbly with a sub 50 in 49:36 and 2nd MV70.

Well done Stormin’

Alderley Edge 10k 22nd August 2021

The race starts at Alderley Park North and heads to the Melrose Way section of the A34 bypass, turning around at the Melrose Way/Pendleton Way roundabout and returning to finish. The course has only a little undulation for PB hunters which was music to Jonathon’s ears as he stormed round for a sub 40 finish, well done to him and Steve Brook who also raced well achieving a sub 50.

130th Jonathon Mason 39:50 (PB)

432nd Steve Brook 49:13 (3rd MV70)

Well done lads

John Carr 5k 18th August 2021

Due to the pandemic uncertainties about holding races in May, the usual 3 race series had been cancelled for 2021, in place of this single race

Although multi terrain (including riverside & towpath) this is a flat 5k with PB potential due to very little undulation. Measured one lap course, with cash prizes!

Just 3 of us raced for QRC and all having decent runs

5th Paul Greenwood 16:53 (1st MV40)

21st Neil Windle 20:20

25th Andrew Patterson 21:07

Well done us

Parkrun 14th August 2021

Well done to all our members who rolled out of bed on Saturday morning for their weekly dose of running medicine and to all who achieved a PB. It looks like one of our members (Carl) has started the away Parkrun early, which reminded me that we need to crack on with these awaydays.

So, because I cant make the last Saturday in August these will commence on the last Saturday of every month with the 1st one on the 25th September giving us 7 awaydays which takes us nicely to our presentation night in April.

The winner will be the member who has accumulated the most age graded percentage points in these Parkruns, so the more you do the more chance you have of wining big.

I hope you will join in and show off your club kit around Yorkshire.

There will be a prize for 1st M+F

Please feel free to nominate an awayday venue outside of our local area
