Abbey Valley Handicap and Barbecue – Tuesday 17 August


Advanced notice that we’re planning an evening barbecue at Leos with special guests Abbey Runners.  The barbecue will be preceded by a 5 mile team handicap race – more details to follow.


Leeds Country Way – Sunday 5 September


Thank you!  I had another 10 replies in the last 5 days, so I can confidently say we will have 5 teams on the start line on 5 September, an “A” (mens) team, a Women’s Team, a Veterans’ team, a “B” team (probably all men) and a “C” team (mixed men & women).  Anyone who was amongst the first 50 to reply has got a place.  We also have 6 reserves and 8 who might be fit by then – please stand by – with 60 on the team list, several of you reserves will be called up.


Teams have now been picked and legs allocated, so you now have your chance to check who you’ve been paired with, so

  • If you wanted an early leg and got a late one, let me know (and vice versa)
  • if you declared yourself doubtful but are now fit, let me know (and vice versa)
  • if you think you’re a lot slower than your proposed partner, let me know (and vice versa)
  • if you think you should be in a higher team, let me know (and vice versa)

Harewood 10 mile race – Sunday 10 October (10/10/10)


We need about 60 marshals to help on this day.  If you’re available, please email me!


We also need help handing out our entry forms at local races.  The recommended technique is to wait at the end of the race finishing funnel and thrust them into runners’ hands.  But if you’re running the race, another method is to put forms under the wipers of car windows in the race car park.  The next race where we’d like entry forms handed out are the Pudsey 10k.  If you can help, please email me!

Brig Bash 5 mile (from George Black)


Managed to finish the Brig Bash 5 mile race on Wednesday 7 July. My time was 35:20 on a certified course and I was first over 70. Quite pleased as I had only been able to run 25 miles in the previous 2 months due to a hamstring injury and ran the first 2 miles 'steady'. I have been doing a good bit of hard cycling so this has obviously kept up some sort of fitness, Only 8 weeks to the World Duathlon Championships in Edinburgh so let’s hope no more injuries.
