Knutsford 10k

This is beautifully flat potential PB course on closed rural roads. David Rudman took full advantage and rattled his clagg around the Knutsford 10k in 45 minutes as our only representative on the day.

Yorkshire Marathon

This takes in the city centre of York and surrounding countryside and usually attracts a few Rams.

Eve Hart bravely paced the 5:30 hopefuls, her chip time was an astonishingly accurate 5:29:48 🎯

Untroubled by what Eve was up to behind them, Hannah and Fiona Chick were rewarded for all their hard miles with 4:00:22 and 3:59:15 respectively.

Luke Everitt also finished in a brilliant 4:24:59.

Montane Grizedale Trail Marathon and Half Marathon.

Six of us took part in Epic Events, Montane sponsored trail race in the lake district.

David Palmer ran the half while Simon Jones, Nigel Harley, Emma Palmer, Yvonne Booth, and marathon a month Sarah Clarke took on the full 26.2.

It’s an accessible, and if you have the energy, wholly runnable trail race that provides some superb views of Coniston Old Man, the Langdales and Southern peaks without ever climbing too high or requiring any hands-on scrambling.

It’s a very good intro to long distance trail racing but probably not one for regular mountain runners.


Well done to all who ran this weekend and congratulations to everyone who achieved a personal target.
