Ward Green 6

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

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!
