WRC Internal League dates published

Races for this years league are published at the Club league page

The Ramathon and Derby 10k races that were popular last year are still in and there are two or three additions this year.  A return of the local Riber Run and a first year for the Lea Bunny Run 10k as well as a first year for the 16 mile Exterminator fell race.  If you know any races that several people are planning to race in you’re welcome to suggest them for inclusion.

Handicaps will be calculated once I’m initiated into the secrets of those dark arts.

Stuart Learmouth Undulator 22 Oct 2017

Results for this year’s Stuart Learmouth Undulator are posted on the race page here.  A fantastic turn-out of 162 in hard conditions, almost 10% of whom came from Wilmslow along with big groups also from Beeston and Long Eaton and visitors from Rossendale.  Congratulations to Harry Holmes on his second win in a row and Billy and Ben Cartwright for racing and finishing together in second/third. The women’s title looked a competitive race, the three first finishers battling it out from at least Hopton where I saw them together, to the finish with eventually Catherin Wilson of Beeston pipping Wirksworth’s Jacqui Hawkins (pictured at Harboro rocks) and Belper’s Ruth Keeley.

T’owd man 2017 results

T’owd man results are up on the WRC website here.

Well done Harry and Ruth on new CRs and all the runners who made it round, especially those doing the ‘long course’ with the Shining Cliff woods leg.  Thanks to Simon and Richard and all the helpers for a good race and especially to the Rotary club for water stations and checkpoints.

WRC duathlon & Markeaton Colour Run 9/10 Sept 17

John P and Brian did another of their cycle-run-cycles to the Markeaton Park Run last Saturday. Results were;
13th John POTTER 20:08,
130th Brian CLEMENTS 26:10,
343 runners.
John also took first place the following day in the Colour Run on the same course.  John writes “this is what I looked like at the end of winning the Markeaton Colour Run yesterday.  As you run round, various people throw coloured powder all over you, it’s for charity.  The course was basically the parkrun course – it wasn’t a race for serious runners (hence me being able to win) but it was good fun and would thoroughly recommend it to WRC members for next year.  It’s the only running race I’ve ever won, and likely to be the only one I ever will win :-)”
On current form he’s being too modest and has many victories to come!
