Bolton Abbey Trail Marathon 2016

This was to be my 5th marathon of the year and I was unsure what to expect having never been to Bolton Abbey before. It had been described as a 3 lap undulating trail run. People I spoke to who had been there said it was quite hilly.

Harriers paint the Wolds RED! Dalton Dash 10km, Feb 28th 2016

The sprawling Dalton estate provided the setting for the small but perfectly formed Dalton Dash 10k this Sunday, a meticulously organised early season test that takes in some of East Yorkshire’s glorious rolling/gruelling (depending on how fast you were going) hills and landscape. A gaggle of erstwhile Harriers* gathered for the start outside of Lord Hotham’s impressive abode, complete with PA and warm-up provided by local personal trainer Ede Bone, each one ready to take on their own personal and usual inter-club challenges, and to see what progress they’d made since the turn of the new year.

Snake Lane 2016

Why is it called Snake Lane it not something that passes the lips of a finisher of this race. It sneaks and “snakes” it way out into the countryside past fields and small villages. At several points you can look up to see lines of runners circumnavigating the country lanes.

Dewsbury 10k 2016

My first road race in the 2016 calendar came along at Dewsbury, having ran it last year it was a firm favourite of mine having recorded a then personal best of 39.13, I had always planned this been my first one of the year thus avoiding the popular Brass Monkey half & Ferriby 10. My focus in January was working on my speed so made an effort to get myself to Costello speed sessions on Wednesday nights & Parkruns at weekends & throw in the three cross country races I had done things were going well.
