A long time ago…Jungfrau

However dark things may seem, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel, and when we exit the tunnel, we’ll once again be able to savour everything this great planet has to offer. And you could do a lot worse than taking part in this race.   A magnificent race report of the JUNGFRAU MARATHON by …

Report: Allendale Chimneys 10K

Ring the bells!! Deck the halls!! We finally have a race report which wasn’t written a long time ago (although in current times, even just a couple of days seems an eternity). Many thanks to Cees van der Land for his 10K report. If anyone has a report they’d like to share, either from the …

A long time ago…Shap

For many runners, deciding whether to run a 10k or a 10 Mile race can be a difficult decision. But Rob Wishart has an easy solution, just do both. On separate days of course. I’ll let Rob take over..   Total Warrior Weekend 3rd & 4th August 2013 Report by Rob Wishart   And now …

A long time ago…Stockton

One of the numerous events to be cancelled or postponed during lockdown has been the Stockton Duathlon Festival, which was due to take place in late April. Having competed in 2018, I was meant to take part in this year’s event too, but alas, it wasn’t to be. However, the reason I took part in …

A long time ago…Prague

We’re skipping back five years to May 2015, and revisiting the Prague Marathon. Completing a marathon is always a special occasion, but for Steve and Mary Pattison, that year’s Prague Marathon was memorable in more ways than one.   Volkswagen Prague Marathon Sunday 3rd May 2015 Report by Steve Pattison   Back in January I …

TBH Running Challenges

With things the way they are, you could be forgiven for slipping into the routine of doing the same run, along the same route, at the same pace, at the same time of day for the duration of the lockdown. And although there’s nothing wrong with that (it’s sure beats sitting on your behind all …

A long time ago…Warrington

Following the positive response to the ‘beach videos’ posted here a few weeks ago, we have another vintage video to enjoy. Filmed in 2011 at the 6 & 4 Stage Road Relay Championships in Warrington, the video features several current members and all I’ll say is, ‘haven’t they aged well!‘ Full credit to Rob Kirtley …

A long time ago…London (pt II)

Did you watch the highlights programme of the first London Marathon? Or take part in the 2.6 Challenge? Either way, I’m sure you were inspired to do a marathon yourself (my advice, count to ten and seriously reconsider that thought – DD) And as a reminder to what an amazing event the London Marathon is, we …

A long time ago…London

Sadly, the London Marathon, which was due to take place this Sunday (26th April), has been postponed until later in the year. But if there’s a silver lining for those missing out on Sunday, it’s the fact the atmosphere at the rescheduled event is sure to be the best ever, celebrating not only the race …

A long time ago…Nice

Nice to see you, to see you Nice. Our next trawl through the club archives sees us jumping back to April 2015, and a report from the European Boy Bands convention. No, my mistake, it’s a report from the Nice Half Marathon.     NICE Half Marathon Sunday, 26th April 2015 Report by Arnaud Albertini   …

parkrun challenge: 18th April 2020

As we all know, parkrun events are currently suspended because cafe’s have ran out of cake and coffee. But that doesn’t mean we can’t run parkun in the virtual world (this virtual world is a mighty busy place at the moment). The premise behind this challenge was to count the number of members who ran/walked …

A long time ago…Paris

For our next visit to the club archives, we’re travelling back to March 2012 to read about the Paris Half Marathon. But we haven’t got one race report. Oh no. We don’t even have two race reports to digest. In fact we’ve got three race reports, all from the same event, and all belters too. …

A long time ago…Manchester

With the country currently in lockdown and a return date for club sessions looking likely to be weeks away rather than days, this is an ideal time to go back through the club’s vaults and re-visit old race reports by members. Or in certain cases, race reports by old runners.  The next report we’re looking at …
