The first set of 2015 Championship results are now on the Championship page.
Duncan Mellor is organising a cycle trip from Penistone to York and back, setting off on Saturday 13th June and following the TPT/Dove Trails via Wombwell, Sprotbrough, Doncaster, Snaith and Selby to York. It’s about 60 miles but very easy going along river banks and old railway lines. A robustly tyred touring, hybrid, mountain or CX bike would be suitable. Duncan has provisionally booked 10 places in York Youth Hostel which is just over 1km from the City Centre on the river. It works out at about £40pp inc breakfast. Clearly beds get booked up quickly so if you can make it, let Duncan/Trish know asap. If demand is higher than 10, we can try for more. The return route on Sunday 14th can be either a reverse of Saturday or more direct along the EBOR Way via Tadcaster, Castleford and Barnsley. Please contact Duncan or Trish for more information or to express interest.
Also, there are a couple of places left on the cycle tour that Janet Proctor and Gill Wolff are organising from Thursday 14th to Sunday 17th May. The route is the 170 mile Way of the Roses from Morecambe to Bridlington. Everyone should have received an email about it, but if anyone is still interested they need to contact Janet by the end of January.
The full schedule for next year’s club championship is now finalised, but there are two changes from the list circulated at the meeting last Wednesday: Retford Half Marathon is already full, so this has been replaced in the schedule with the Yorkshire Half Marathon in Sheffield, on 12 April. This is also filling up quickly, so enter as soon as you can if you want to run it. However, your best time in any half marathon in 2015 (up to the end of November) will be your championship counter. Also, Wombwell 5 has been dropped as it clashes with the Liversedge Half Marathon. This has been replaced with the Spencer’s Dash race on 1 July.
All this races are highlighted in the Events Diary and there is a list on the Club Championship page.
The first race is in the road section: Meltham 10k on January 25th. Pre-entry only (here) – NO ENTRY ON THE DAY. Closing date for postal entries is 21st January. You can also pre-enter online.
Corrected results and WMA times and totals for the first six races are available on the winter handicap page along with Keith’s race report.
Results are available here. Thanks to Nick and Teresa for organising, and to Andy and Sarah for hosting.
