Our annual pilgrimage to Almscliffe Crag for the Summer Solstice (longest day) saw 30 Striders running up to the Crag in three groups taking on beautiful 5, 6 or 13 mile trail routes. We congregated at the top to take in the views, consume some halfway drinks and snacks and…

Fell Championship 2024 – Event 9 – Kettlewell Anniversary – report and results

7th June 2024

Round 9 of the Fell Champs saw a trip to Kettlewell, in the heart of the dales. While the course was only about 5 miles/8km this had a LOT of elevation. Given the busy week in Striders’ diaries (HDSRL and Bed race) I think it was impressive that we had…

5th June 2024

Round 8 of the Fell Champs saw a trip to Pen Y Ghent, one of Yorkshire’s 3 peaks. Although the race essentially went up and back the mountain it is not an out and back, rather you run up the South side and run down the North side. Easy!! We…

CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP 2024 – EVENT 8 – Burton Leonard 10k – REPORT AND RESULTS

21st May 2024

I find myself following Mr Rockall’s lead on multiple counts, firstly by following his excellent template for race reports, and secondly by writing a report about a race I didn’t actually participate in (must try harder!). The Burton Leonard 10k is a firm favourite and a stalwart in the Championship…
