The Druid Challenge : 9th – 11th November 2012

Simon Pryde reports from this year’s Ridgeway muti-stage Ultra race. He was in tears when he ran past me. But he still had twelve miles to go. Twelve energy-sapping,  slippery, muddy, hilly miles. It was Day 3 of the Druid Challenge, an undulating 84 mile route from Ivinghoe Beacon near Tring in Hertfordshire to Wroughton, …

Heaton Town Moor Memorial 10k Race Report (2) – 11th November 2012

Third time lucky then. When Dave Young, Sophie Marr and myself accidentally trotted over the start line at the end of our warm-up around the Town Moor before Sunday’s Memorial 10k, we thought we’d just blown our chances of a collectively run sub-41m effort. Luckily it happens all the time, we were told, and it’s …

TBH Winter Grand Prix 2012/13: Race 2 Results

Despite blustery conditions along Newcastle quayside, there was still a fantastic turnout of 75 members for the 2nd race of the Winter Grand Prix Series. Whereas the 1st event was a straight forward race, this one incorporated a yacht handicapping system, with runners setting off at pre-determined time intervals depending upon their performance in the 1st race.   Finishing first around the accurately …

The Derwentwater Ten: 4th November 2012

Having ran several full and half-marathons in the past few months, I thought I’d take it easy this weekend by only running a 10 Mile race here’s my account…   Parking outside Keswick School, race HQ for the day, you couldn’t help but be inspired by the beautiful scenery that surrounded you. With clear blue …

parkrun roundup – 27th October 2012

In the lead up to Saturday’s Newcastle parkrun, the town moor was hit by several sleet showers and the organisors were left with the difficult decision of whether to go ahead with the event. Thankfully they agreed it could, on the proviso that the runners used their common sense (runners and common sense?), and even though the course was …

Original Mountain Marathon (OMM) – 27th and 28th October 2012

Intrepid club member, John Tollitt, sends this race report.             ‘Fancy doing the OMM with me?’ I was asked a few months ago by Geoff Davis, a fellow Northumberland Fell Runner, at the start of a fell race in Durham. I said that I’d think about and then asked a …
