Wharfedale trail half marathon

A cheeky 13.2 mile trail which affords participants and their families the opportunity to enjoy a great day out in some of Wharfedale’s finest scenery, with over 2,000 feet of ascents. The route follows well established footpaths, including the Dalesway and Mastiles Lane and for those with time to take in the fabulous scenery the views from Scott Gate, Mastiles and Boss Moor are quite breath-taking.
Jeff Walker and Rachel Prince were there to fly the Nidd flag, with Jeff finishing in 2:32:45 and Rachel in 2:36:22, a massive well done!

Eve league race 1 – Skipton

Skipton AC was the host club for the start of this year’s summer evening league, and as per usual the sun made an appearance earlier on in the afternoon and stayed for the duration of the race over some ‘undulating’ terrain on the outskirts of the town. Nidd had 70 plus runners turn up for this one, an amazing number, and we were clearly one of the best represented clubs of the night. The hot conditions and lovely uphill start didn’t seem to deter any of us, and everyone put in a cracking performance. I hope I’ve included everyone that ran, let me know if your name’s missing:

Nidd Valley Team – HSEL Skipton 5th June 2018

Otley Chevin Fell race

This was a race that crept in under the radar between the business of the evening league and the bed race last week, but we still managed to get 8 club runners turn up and run. With 689ft of climb over 2.8 miles, it was just enough for a Wednesday night at the start of June. Here are the finishing times for NVRR:

Andy Harris 20:40, Martin Lofthouse 22:05, Eduardo Piano 22:54, Phil Ventress 25:13, Russell Geraghty 27:17, Sam Fugill 28:02, Sarah Chalmers 43:34, Debbie Gibson 43:35.

Jane completed the race in 3:27:20 – well done Jane!

Knaresborough Bed race

You should all be well aware of the score by now – it’s always the second weekend in June, the weather is usually pants right up until 2pm on race day, you know you have probably caught the River Nidd sickness bug prior to the race but decide you’ll be fine on the day, the day itself is long with lots of waiting around that does nothing to calm the nerves, you work yourself up so much that a feeling of numbness comes over you prior to going over the start line, you’re then straight out of the traps heading towards Castle Ings, you blink then next thing you know you’re trying desperately not to drown or drag the bed into the dark and murky depths of the glorious Nidd, you then cross the line, elated with emotion but also glad it’s all over and you say to yourself that you’ll never do such a silly thing again, everyone hugs and gives high fives, have a can of beer while still in your stinking and sodden kit, get changed, retire to The Mitre for a few beverages, then finally decide what a wonderful day you’ve had and can’t wait to do it all again next year. Sound familiar?

We had three teams in this year, and all three put in exceptional performances that were testament to every member of each team and their hard work and effort over the last few months. The Men’s B team were 5th overall in 15:05.3; the Ladies team 36th overall in 18:13.8, and the Zip to Zoomers were 87th overall in 23:34.1. I think everyone had a good day…..

That’s your lot for now, enjoy Otley tomorrow night if you are racing – the views from the top of the hill(s) are amazing…..
