Chris writes “The Ward Green 6 was the last of the club championship races for 2018. I’ve updated the championship results with the final positions. Our overall winners across all age groups were as follows:
Women: 1st place – Marie Louise Taylor 2nd place – Shaz Wood 3rd place – Rose James Was Thompson
Men: 1st place – George Phillips 2nd place – Martin James 3rd place – Jimmy Osborne
The mens competition was particularly tight with only 4 points between 1st and 3rd places.
Huge congratulations to George and Mazza for being our very first Club Champions!!!!!

The last counter in our club championships (results to follow), the Ward Green 6 (5.7 miles) road race. Heavy rain and 170m of elevation gain over 2 laps so you know what is to come on the second lap… Thanks to Barnsley AC for hosting the race and well done to all the runners
Braithwell Boxingday race
Maltby Running Club organised this one, a mix of road and trail which I guess must have been quite muddy.
2018 has been another great year, thanks to so many people making our club the envy of our region. As your Chairman I would like to share my pride in everything we do. 2019 will take us to another level but in the meantime have a great Christmas with your families. Kev Lincoln

FROSTY TRIPLE, 14-16TH December 2018
Report by Julie Cull
Location: Barrow in Furness
This was a 3 day event, organised by Christopher Kay and it was only the second time the event has been run. This event is not marshalled along the route but the routes are very clear, tarmac surfaced and Christopher keeps tabs on all the runners. The route changed each day with Day 1 and Day 2 basing from Rampside Village hall and Day 3 from the Brewers Fayre at Barrow in Furness. All three routes being coastal runs in the main, with stunning scenery and many friendly local runners. Each run was based on a 10k loop with 5k turnaround points, so options every day included 5k, 10k, half marathon (2x10k loops) and full marathon options (4x10k loops) Drinks and selection of nuts/sweets supplied to recharge at the start point for hydration and fuelling for all the runners. Scrumptious! Especially the Hot chocolate self-service option for when you’ve completed your runs at Rampside on day 1 & 2. Sluuurp!
