Northern Road Relays – 23 September 2018
We had a fantastic day representing Doncaster at the Northern Road Relays. Conditions were windy but dry (apart from poor Jono who got soaked). Next up are the cross country relays, see Martin for seniors at the cabin or Barry Barnes / Paul Rowland for Juniors.
Men – out of 128 teams we finished 64th so half way up the leader board Continue reading
This event has been on my radar for some time, and I have to say it lived up to my expectations. Registration takes place on the Saturday so it’s a chance to see the finish area and wander around the event village at Bught Park, Inverness A good expo, bar, food and some live music was on offer along with a Kiddies 5k and an Open 10k event.
We chose to stay half way been the finish line at Inverness, and the start near Fort Augustus. A beautiful log cabin on an estate with additional facilities of a indoor heated swimming pool and games room, plus a really good local pub 5 minutes walk away, and a bargain price for 3 nights. Angie Clarke and myself were running supported by our Partners, Derek and Darren and then Laura Herbert and Sonny joined us. Additional support arrived when we discovered Angie’s Mum Irene and Dad Geoff (Mr Paparazzi) were in Scotland and they extended and diverted their tour to be there and cheer us on.
I could probably talk for hours about this race. The terrain, the weather and the fantastic other runners.
But, I’ll try and keep this as concise as possible. (it still ended up being a little long, probably best if you grab a cup of tea before you start reading)
The race started in Betws-Y-Coed at 6:30 in the morning, the crazy people doing the 100 mile race started 10 minutes before us.
There were seven checkpoints on the route, so loads of places to get food and water. I had my map and compass and more importantly the GPX file showing the route on my watch. I was feeling really confident, especially after the Pennine Barrier race. Continue reading
We need volunteers for race marshals at the Cusworth 10k on Sunday 30th of September. This is your chance to put something back into your club. If your not running, could you please spare a couple of hours to help man the route and help make it another successful event for the club. We will be meeting outside the Hall at 9:30. Anyone can help out – you don’t have to be a member of the club – just message me by commenting under this post if you are free – the more marshals the better as we can then cover and even double up at stations. Please let me know if you can help out as soon as possible so I can get things organised.
Cheers Eddie Fletcher
