The 2019 Penistone Hill Race will take place at 11am on Sunday 22 September. Details of the race and online entry are here. This is a great race and all money raised from entry fees goes to support Sporting Penistone – a charity providing leisure facilities in Penistone.
The first Winter Handicap race of the 2019-20 series is on Tuesday 17 September
Handicaps and start times are all on the race page, as are the rules and an explanation of how it all works.
There are some blanks as Keith has no data on which to base a handicap. If anyone with a blank wants to run then if you send Keith a parkrun time and venue and/or a 10K time and venue he will work something out. As a rough guide, bearing in mind it is 4.5 miles with a couple of hills, multiply your parkrun time by 1.5 and add a bit depending on your venue (hilly or flat), or multiply your 10K time by 0.75. This will be your approximate time to do the distance in.
If you definitely will not be running any of the 8 races then also let Keith know and we’ll take you off the list (saves time and paper and makes the administration of results less onerous).
There is no charge but a voluntary contribution of 50p per race or a maximum of £3 for the 8 races is suggested.
These rules are MANDATORY:
1. You must wear a hi viz vest. (Keith has spares). The run is all on roads and you need to be seen by cars.
2. You must check in and get your name ticked off. This is so anyone falling in a ditch will not be left there. If you do drop out for injury make sure we know so we don’t call out WMRT.
The first 3 runners back will get tubs of chocolates. BUT…. Keith will be applying a strict 4 minute limit for the first week, so if you finish more than 4 minutes faster than your predicted time he will assume that you have not been fair in informing him of your current ability. You can still take the credit for 1st place but the chocs will be consumed by someone else.
Finally, if you are a newbie and are concerned about getting lost Keith can pair you with someone experienced to run with. The first week is run in the light so easier than the rest.
Registration is from 6pm in the room behind the leisure centre. Hope to see a good turnout – the record is 65 so let’s beat that!
Thanks to all the juniors who came and ran the junior fell handicap, and thanks to Steve Sanders and all the helpers who organised it.
The under 11s ran one lap and the rest 2 laps of a 1.2 mile course with 285 feet of climbing.
In the under 11s, first (and fastest) boy was Tadek Kunicki-Holda, and first (and fastest) girl was Graihagh Turner.
In the over 11s, Hugh Mackie and Ruby Ball were the fastest boy and girl respectively, but the races were won by John Halstead and Milly Horsfield.
Well done all. The full results are here.
The results of the Oxspring Hunshelf Amble are here. Thanks to Steve Dickinson and all the volunteers for putting the race on, and to all those who ran.
The results of the Thurlstone Chase are here. Thanks to Keith Gordon and all the volunteers for putting the race on, and to all those who ran.
The Summer Handicap Race tonight was a lovely evening with a fantastic race followed by a nice meal in The Castle at Bolsterstone. Thank you very much to Julia Johnson, Sarah Plummer and Alison Nockels for organising everything. The event was won by John Howsham and Nick Whittingham – the official method of deciding the winner was by drawing of lots! For those interested in the times, Hugh Mackie and Myfanwy Cross were the fastest pair, albeit only by 18 seconds! The results are here.
The turnout was disappointing for a club night – only 24 runners. All the rest really missed out on a great evening and those that did go thoroughly appreciated the effort put in by Julia, Sarah and Alison.
The junior event was better attended, and won by Thomas Phillips, who finished only 7 seconds outside his predicted time. Thanks to Bob and his team of marshals for organising that very successfully.
The Results from the 2019 Penistone 10K are here. Thanks to all those who ran, volunteered and sponsored the event.
The results of the 2019 Barnsley Boundary Relay Race are here. Note there are some changes to the times of the Barnsley AC times from those announced at the presentation evening, as a result of a mix-up with the numbers on one of the legs. However, the overall positions of the teams in categories is not affected and the Barnsley AC ladies time (9:46:08) is still a new course record.
Thanks to all the runners in a record 38 teams, all the marshals, timekeepers, organisers and other volunteers.
Venue: Bolsterstone Village Hall, Tuesday 2nd July, to set off 7pm.
Mainly off road route, suitable for all.
The Castle Inn in the village will put on some food if people would like to eat afterwards. If numbers are big enough they will do something like steak pie and chips, if small numbers we can just order from the menu. May be helpful if folks can give an indication as to whether they would like to eat afterwards, either to Sarah Plummer or Julia Johnson.
Also we could do with about 6 marshals and timekeepers, if anyone who isn’t running would like to help.
Walk to Run is an annual event put on by Penistone Footpath Runners to promote fitness for the communities in and around Penistone.
It is a free, 10 week session that takes place on the Trans Pennine Trail behind Tesco in Penistone.
This year the first session will be on Thursday 16th of May starting at 6.30pm.
Full details are available here.
The results of the 2019 Hartcliff Hill Race are here. Please use the contact form to inform us of any errors or omissions. Thanks to all involved in organising, supporting and running. Well done to Max Wainwright and Katie Walshaw for breaking the course records!
The weather held, just about, and we had another successful club mile event. Results are here. Thanks to Shaun Dimelow for organising, Martyn Cartwright, Keith Binney and others for officiating, Katie Dimelow for the excellent buffet, and all those from Penistone and Barnsley who supported the event.
All the internal club competition results can be accessed from the main club results page here, along with club records and club standards.
The club uses an online membership management system called membermojo. New members can apply to join the club here. See the Membership page for more details.
The results from the Amble’s Revenge on 30 December 2018 are here. Thanks to all who ran, marshalled, and helped in lots of other ways to make the event such a success again.
The race was won by Tom Saville of Dark Peak Fell Runners in a new course record time of 40:15. First lady was Laura Gill in 53:34. First male team was Penistone (Scott Hinchcliffe (2nd), Gareth Cooke (4th) and Dan Limb (14th)). First ladies’ team was also Penistone with the first three places: Laura Gill, Julie Darigala and Becky Timms. In all, 85 ran. The full results are here.
We have a new website for the club standards for road running. All the qualifying road races and parkruns are now taken directly from the British Athletics Power of 10 website, which means we can include races from before 2017. We have also adjusted the standard times to make them consistent across all age/sex groups and distances. A detailed explanation of the standards is on the standards page. The current standings for all Penistone runners are listed here and will be updated regularly. If you want to submit a race that is not included on your Power of 10 page, please send details to John Broom – if approved it will be added manually. Certificates of achievement for new standards achieved in 2018 will be awarded at the club presentation night.

A record number of teams (34) with all 340 runners completing their legs, and a new course record for the Barnsley AC ladies team. Final results and details of winning teams are on the race page.
All the results from last night’s club mile, 4x400m and junior races are here. Despite being pipped by the impressive Barnsley AC teams, both the Penistone 4x400m relay teams broke club records, and there was a new V55 record set by Sue Hall for the mile. Several juniors came within a second of their age group records, so there is good potential there. Thanks to everyone who supported it across both PFR and Barnsley AC, and in particular to Shaun Dimelow, Martyn Cartwright, Keith Binney, Helen Fryers, Jill Carlton and Sophie Dimelow for all your contributions to the running of the evening.
Congratulations to Nathan Lawson and Katie Walshaw, each winning last night’s Hartcliff Hill race by a big margin in times of 16:46 and 19:17 respectively, making a mockery of heavy conditions. The full results are here. Thanks to all organisers, marshals and Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team, and to all runners.
Results for final race are here.
A disappointing turnout of 42 runners for the last race despite a pleasant enough evening, albeit a bit breezy on the tops. Obviously this helped Andrew who, in his first race for a few years, ‘breezed’ to a win by over two and a half minutes. Not that this mattered, as tonight was really about who won the championship. Jill was second in the race with a much improved time but the big winner was Shelley Gill who can claim the winter handicap championship. Second place goes to Sue Hall and third to Simon Pike. All the qualifying runners are in bold on the results. Times in general were down due to the wind but yet again Alan Knox was consistent enough to take 3rd place in the WMA on the night and first place overall. 2nd in WMA was Richard Mackie and 3rd was Matt Robinson. They will be joined as trophy winners by Laura Gill and Damian Kilpin as fastest lady and man. Congratulations to everyone. A great series blessed by good weather and many thanks to the helpers. Martyn, Janet in particular and Paul for the excellent results service. It might seem a long way off but it will be no time at all before it all begins again. Enjoy the summer and don’t forget it’s the Winter (Christmas) Handicap (the other one) this coming Sunday. Details here.

As runners we all spend time out training, buying the latest kit and entering races. But the one thing most of us forget, can’t be bothered to do or just don’t know how to do, is a post run stretch. In an attempt to keep injury free we really should not ignore this part of our training routine.
This link shows a number of key stretches that all runners should do post run. They shouldn’t take more than 5-10 mins and your muscles will appreciate them.
