A Warrior’s Tale: Norman Woodcock Race Poem

The Highland Bard Kenny Mac runs the Woodcock and pens the Craic: A damp Autumnal afternoon set the scene, For the Norman Woodcock, calm and serene.

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

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 …
