Not only did we have a fantastic turn out of volunteers to help run the event, we had a fantastic turn out of runners : 72 out of a field of 266.

David Smithers came home first, closely followed by Phillip Elliott-Dick. Emma Yates, John Oliver, Janet Hales and Barry Atkinson all took first place in their age categories.

I hope you all enjoyed the views!


Suzuki Midnight Sun Run (Miðnæturhlaupi Suzuki) Half Marathon,            Reykjavik, Iceland

As it was his first half marathon,  it’s also a PB – 2:06:04!


Whorlton Run

This 10k fell race on the western edges of the North Yorkshire Moors is almost an off road version of the Bishop Wilton 10k, a large and steep initial climb followed by gradual high speed descending for what seems like the entirety of the remainder of the race.

Knavesmire’s Harry Holmes won the race with a time of 44;16, Simon Collins was third (46:25) and Giles Hawking was 11th (49:54). sadly we were one runner  short of a complete Men’s team.
