Directions for Cross Country at Ilkley on Sunday


Message from Ilkley Harriers


It is highly unlikely that we will be able to use the bottom of the field for car parking at Nell Bank (as shown on our details).  The field is saturated and will not dry out before the weekend. The alternative that we are suggesting is to park in the Ilkley Lido car park and walk east through the woods onto the course - there is a good track along the bottom of the woods all the way along to the triangle field where the course is being run.  Allow 10 mins for the walk. 


Race starts 11:00.  Ideally register before 10:30.  £2.50.


Shepherds Skyline


From Laura Clark


Sharon Tansley and I ran in the Shepherds Skyline Fell Race on Sat. It was very muddy and slippy it was hard to stay on our feet! I came 160th and Sharon 321st out of 363. Unfortunately Sharon fell over and grazed her knee badly but still finished the race!


From Beca Harvey


(Beca won the last Club Handicap and hasnít been seen since)


Sorry I havenít been down for a while, I am struggling with an old stress fracture in my leg and am having to take it very steady, just using treadmill etc. It happened the 1st time as a consequence of road running and I am worried this may be the trigger again! I am managing just about to keep fitness up in the gym so hopefully wont lose what I have built up! Anyway, just wanted to let you know it wasn't anything you said! Will hopefully be back soon but will have to see how it goes. 


Baby Strider


From Rob Bumstead


I am now a father!  My girfriend, Deborah gave birth to a baby boy, Benjamin Matthew on 9th Oct, 6lb 13 oz.


Mother and baby are doing well, and Deborah reckons he's got runner's legs - not sure if this is a good thing or not!  He can certainly kick though!
