Haworth Hobble 2015 (updated)

Chris Singleton, 1st man

Another great Haworth Hobble! 383 finished, in good conditions. I had to be there by 6:30 to deliver the free Clif Bars for the start of registration, so it was a 4:20 alarm for me – not something I want to repeat too often. It was a bit cold at the start, but I took […]

Runfurther Strava club

We’ve now got a Runfurther Strava club – many thanks to Ian Symington for setting it up. You can find it at https://www.strava.com/clubs/128521. Once Ian’s told me how to do it I’ll put a widget up here for it as well! Just the thing for logging those runs & comparing your performance against the rest […]

The 2015 Champs start on Saturday

Well I’ve already started packing for Haworth – let’s see, Full waterproofs, compass, 432 Clif Bars,…

The forecast looks reasonably good at the moment – perhaps a bit of rain early on, but no more, & not much wind. Don’t overdo the whisky at Lumbutts, and make sure you save something in your legs for […]

Mid-February News

The Hobble’s drawing near, and even the Calderdale Hike’s not that far away. Remember the Calderdale Hike takes a new route this year, and a recce is probably not a bad idea if you can fit it in. A route around Calderdale is always interesting but also always has complicated bits, and this one’s no […]

Mid-January News

It’s time to stop eating fruit cake and chocolate and start to get rid of that extra weight you’ve unaccountably put on over the past few weeks. There’s a lot of races coming up, so you should be out there training, trying out your new running gear you got for Christmas. I’m stuck inside, still […]

On New Year’s […]

All four members of the Runfurther committee were out on Saturday running in the Tour de Helvellyn. This is one of Joe Faulkner’s Nav4 races, and a great event. We talked to Joe about the possibility of including one of his races in the 2016 Championship, which would be great if we can do it. […]

Prizegiving & AGM Report

P1050940

It’s taken me a long time to find time to put this post together – apologies for the delay. A lot of other stuff had been put on hold towards the end of the Runfurther season, so I had to get on with some of that, or get in serious trouble with my family! Karen […]
