Mid April News

A few bits and pieces for you, in the run-up to Saturday’s Fellsman. Good luck to everyone who’s running; we’ll see you there.

Nigel Aston has sent us a write-up of his unsupported 100-mile run at Easter: the Leicestershire Round. This is a 100-mile waymarked long distance path close to his home. He got round […]

Calderdale Hike 2015 (updated)

Nick CH 2015 01

I’ve now added the Calderdale Hike results to the Runfurther leaderboard (with a couple of corrections made a few days later), and put the team results up too. Nick Ham’s photos can be found here. Karen went off to Scotland to bag Munros straight from the race, but she sent a race report when […]

Early April News

Just a quick post to say we’ll be at the Calderdale Hike tomorrow, with banners up, prizes for the winners and there’ll also be spot prizes for Runfurther members. This time they’ll be for runners who’ve completed both the Haworth Hobble and the Calderdale Hike. We’ll draw them once I get back from running & […]

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 […]

Hardmoors 30 2015

Happy New Year to you all. If anyone feels the urge to write up any of their ultra runs, we’d be delighted to post them here on the website, or post a link to them if you’ve already got a home for them. Photos too! In the meantime, here’s one of mine…

On New Year’s […]

Tour de Helvellyn 2014


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. […]
