End of year approaching

The last two races and the AGM/prizegiving are fast approaching. Jedburgh (28 October) has been full for a while, but you can still enter the White Rose 30 (4 November). In fact you can enter the White Rose 60 or the White Rose 100 if you want: your time for the first 30 miles will […]

Long Tour of Bradwell results revisited

Summary

We recently had brought to our attention that the first two finishers at the Long Tour of Bradwell failed to find one of the controls. According to the race rules they should have been disqualified, although the race organisers always have the discretion to bend rules if they want. Normally of course we go […]

Round Rotherham 50 2017 – updated 20 Oct (link to Karen’s blog)

The Race

Saturday saw the last of the Long Runfurther races for 2017, and the 10th race of the year. Round Rotherham is loved by many, and dreaded by some. At least there was warm weather this time. Karen’s race report is on her blog here, and the results are up on SportIdent here. I’ll […]

The race

By my reckoning this was the 9th running of the Long Tour of Bradwell, and in my view it’s one of the best ultras in the country – I’ll try to explain why I think so in my race report below. Numbers were up this year, which was good […]

The Race

Read Chris Davies’s race report below for a good feel for what this race was about. This is a low-key event for connoisseurs, with 39 finishers this year. First in to Alston was new member Rory Harris in 6:06, second was David Chetta in 6:12, and 3rd was Chris Davies in 6:18 – […]

The Fellsman 2017 (updated 6 June)

NickHam

Karen picked up a lot of new members at the Fellsman – welcome to all of you. I’m still not running, so I wasn’t there. Karen was there, but she was marshalling – she wasn’t running as she was saving herself for the Hardmoors 200, which started in Hull just a few days later (5 […]

The Race

Apologies for the delay in posting this, but I was away walking from Devon to South Wales, and only got back home last night. Well, on to the race… A sunny day and a great race by the looks of it, although I was busy packing for my week’s walking rather than […]
