Liverpool Rock ‘n’ Roll running festival

Looks like all our runners had a brilliant weekend, some nice feedback posted on our facebook wall from Rebecca:

Just wanted to say….
A huge thank you to these two lovely ladies Sue Hunt & Gemma Louise Ward who I randomly met about a 3rd of the way into the Liverpool Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon yesterday. We started to chat about all sorts and they let me tag along with them! I’m not sure I’d have made the finish in such good spirits if i hadn’t have met them. They are so friendly, encouraging, down-to-earth and an asset to your running club. 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️
Hopefully bump into you guys again at a race in the future. Thank you! Xx
P.s. Who’d have thought ‘blue wellies’ would bring us together! Continue reading

Edinburgh Festival of Running 2017

5km – 27 May 2017

I entered this race because I don’t get to do many road 5km races and I was travelling up to support Rose in the marathon.  Its a tough race, basically the first half climbing, then levelling out and a fast down hill finish.  1092 runners finished the race and I was pleased to finish second overall with a time of 18:11, not the time I was looking for but I did not know how hilly the race was going to be.

Marathon – 28 May 2017

Firstly I would like to mention that two of our most popular runners and club captains Darren Wood and Rose James had to pull out from the race, always a tough decision to make but got to look at the bigger picture, so well done for making the right call both.  You have both put the training in and will be strong for it going forward.  I know Sharon Maughan is grateful to her guide runner, he was unwell during the race but managed to guide Sharon to the end.

Cape Wrath Challenge- 4 races in the week for lone Doncaster AC member Susan

My second Cape Wrath Challenge week. May 2017.  Durness, Sutherland, North West Highlands, Scotland.

I arrived in Balnakeil, Durness on Sunday after a days train travel to Inverness to stay with my old friend Anita (ex fell runner who due to hip replacement no longer runs).

Monday 15th May – I was full of cold so marshalled at the 9 mile mark on Mondays Half round Loch Eribol with Neil -a fisherman from Fife whose 75 yr old triathlon partner Jane runs every race every year!   The Half & 10k was so windy & wet we had to set up the water cups in the back of his van!

Tuesday 16th May – Two Lochs 5 mile trail race 1:04:38. Warm, no wind but muggy. Slippy on the grass & muddy round the loch. Steep hills & sheep! Continue reading
