race roundup 20thNov2016

Last weekend saw Julian try to better the Abbey Dash performance in the hope of better weather, didn’t quite come off but still did a 33.20 at Chester 10k.  New athlete Ian ran 37:25 for a pb at Chester also.   Peter had a nice jog round the Gower Ultra 28miler in 6:39 trying to help a mate get CCC points.

This week Helen was representing GB for the police at the XC and paced 4th, to help GB win the team prize.

Another 4th place for Luke in testing conditions at the Tour of Pendle this weekend, not bad for a benchmark run with no real prep work!

Last weekend saw Julian and Jenny both racing at the West Yorkshire Winter League- closed results.

This weekend saw the Barlick contingent racing at the Mid-Lancs cross country; Luke led the group home in 20th place 35:44, I was a ‘few’ places behind (120th place) in 42:42, and Scott threw down the challenge to me on the start line, but then slipped and lost a shoe on lap one resulting in 160th place and 45:15.

Race round up 3rd October 2016

Race round up 3rd Oct:

Joe Horne – ticking the UTMB/CCC points box with a 11th place at round Ripon Ultra, 35miles in 5:49:53 (same time as 10th place). Nice warm up for next weekends 50miler 😉

Luke Jezza Maude and Julian Hood teamed up as part of the Ian Hodgson Fell Relays for Barlick Fell Runners, they pulled the team back from 20th to 13th place on leg 2, but the team then slipped back to 20th.

Me! Suffered round the first cross country of the season. Didn’t take my own advice on warm up and remembered how much these short races hurt! Bring on 50miles on Saturday instead!

Good to catch up with Helen Leigh and Christina Singleton who also had a run out at the cross country despite not in structured training at the moment.
