St Ives beach 10K Cornwall, Tue 30 July

From Dave Iibbotson... this new race starts on the beach at low tide on the west end of Hayle beach, St Ives, Cornwall. The course takes you along the length of the beach before turning into the sand dunes at Hayle Towans. Beautiful scenery surrounds you as you follow well trodden paths and you are eventually faced with the 'Big Dune' – a very steep intimidating dune of soft loose sand. Once over this, you descend back to the beach for a long last mile slog to the finish. I did 51 minutes 54th out of 115 entrants. Winner Ben Price Cheltenham 35:39

Training, Tuesday 30th July

Please note there is no training at ILTSC this week as there is a major tennis tournament on. There is an Away Run as described in the Forums.

Lancaster 5km, Sat 27 July

From Beth Massey ... Unable to resist another opportunity to race over 5km I headed off into Lancashire for the 3rd of the Lancaster Summer 5km series. Not going to be caught out again by a 5km race being marked out in miles I'd worked out my pace beforehand! Unfortunately, I forgot to tell my legs and I was off the pace from the start going though the first 2 miles well off target and on course for a 20min+ time. My legs finally got the message and did the final mile at my target pace! I crossed the line in 19mins 44secs finishing 3rd lady (1st F40) a bit slower than I'd hoped for but a good effort! This is genuinely a PB course as it is run on a flat, traffic free circuit, although it would benefit from a bigger field as it can be a bit of time trial. Having said that, the first 9 men and 1st lady were all under 17mins with James Reed of Altrincham & District winning in the very swift time of 15mins 14secs.
If you're on form and running well it's certainly worth making the effort to travel to Lancaster to take part in this friendly series.

Harrogate Town Centre 10k, Sun 21 July

From Henry Heavisides ... The course for the Harrogate Town Centre 10k is 2 laps of a residential area. It is undulating with lots of twists & turns. The weather was overcast & not as hot in recent days which made it quite pleasant for running a 10k. Rob Cunningham continued his fine run of recent form with a time of 36:13 for 13th place. 11 runners from Ilkley Harriers took part in the race. Results ...

Pudsey Multi-terrain 10k, Sun 21 July

From Paul Stephens... I like this race. It's a varied course, half off-road with some steep hills. Staring from the Cenotaph in Pudsey it plunges down into the Fulneck Valley, climbs out on the Bradford side, loops round and descends again with a steep ascent back up to Pudsey and a 3km finish along the roads, the last 800m uphill and into the park. There was a great crowd all the way around and plenty of marshals. I was the only Harrier, and was reasonably happy with my time of 47.10 and 76 place out of 351. It was a minute or two slower than in 2010, and a few places down, but a good friendly race. Results ...

Cheshire half marathon, Sun 21 July

From David Green ... this was my first half marathon and I can thoroughly recommend it as a course for the half marathon novice. The race starts and finishes at Arley Hall and is flat, well marshalled and takes in the best of rural Cheshire. The flat course and cooler conditions helped towards a sub-2 hour finishing time. A second Cheshire half marathon is held is in November at Capesthorn Hall.

Kentmere Horseshoe, Sun 21 July

More from Will Buckton ... I followed Ingleborough by completing my 25th FRA fell race of 2013 on Sunday at the Kentmere Horseshoe (AM 19.8km/1006m). A classic race taking in the summits of Ill Bell, High Street and Kentmere Pike with some excellent grassy ridge running and fast descents. Although my legs were pretty tired in the first couple of miles, I soon got going and had a reasonable run to finish 38th out of a field of 214 in 1h53. Met a new Ilkley Harrier called Dan who I chased round and he finished strongly just ahead in 1h52.

Ingleborough Mountain Race, Sat 20 July

From Will Buckton ... There was a great turnout of Harriers on Saturday at the Ingleborough Mountain Race (AM 11km/600m). It's a huge climb from Ingleton and a flying descent. Good to see Martin Archer back on the fells and first Harrier home. Ilkley cleared up four prizes with Jane McCarthy taking 1st Lady and LV40, Ian Rowbotham 1st V50 and Nick Pearce 1st V60.

Eshton Moor fell race, Thu 18 July

Jeff Green reports... the race used to be called Gargrave Cross Country and according to my calculations, it wouldn’t count as a category “C” under FRA rules. But who cares?! This was a BOFRA race and a very friendly, low key one on a beautiful summer evening. There wasn’t a huge turnout and it would have helped to have had a few more runners who knew the route, especially near the front. I think the eventual winner ran the furthest as well as the fastest. There was some enthusiastic junior racing too with an excellent 3rd place for Max Bradley in the Boys U12s race. Results ...

Golden Acre Relays, Wed 17 July

Lynn Donohue reports ... A beautiful summers' evening at Golden Acre, lots of teams - 113 in total and three Harriers teams: Junior girls, ladies team and a mixed team. Teams of three each running about 2.75 miles each, largely based on the PECO cross country course, a mixture of parkland, woods and fields. Won by a junior boys team from City of York in a new course record 44:22, in fact City of York had a brilliant evening wining the Junior girls and Ladies teams. Our junior girls of Tilly Melechi, Iso Hirst and Joanne Williamson had a good run finishing 50th in 59:18. It was very last minute making up the mixed team with only 2 runners until 5 minutes beforehand but we managed to borrow a young man from Abbey Runners and Keith was very pleased as he managed to finish in a faster time than the youngster!

Ilkley Harriers regained the Mob Match trophy, narrowly defeating Bingley Harriers 1381 points to 1355, every runner counting as both clubs fielded 16 runners. Super results all round, especially considering it was the hottest day of the year so far! A big thank you to all those who marshalled and helped out. This race is going from strength to strength, with a record field of 81 runners even on a day when it would've been nice to just sit in the beer garden!

Wasdale fell race, Sat 13 July

Dave Wilby reports on this English Championships counter, 21 miles with 9000' of climb... the toughest fell race in the calendar certainly wasn't made any easier by a late morning start on the hottest day of the year so far, but a good number of Harriers put in some fantastic performances to conquer the course in fine style. Steve Turland showed an excellent return to form to lead home the travelling contingent, and was followed home by the ice cool Will Buckton who knocked over an hour off his time of last year, despite conditions meaning times in general were slower by at least 10-15 minutes. Nick Pearce took on Wasdale for the first time, and despite doing the 120 mile White Rose cycle ride last weekend still had the legs to come home 3rd in his age group. Alison Weston ran brilliantly to lead home our ladies and maintain her consistent run of times, despite the conditions. Also completing in very fine style were Jann Smith, Neil Smith, Duncan Cooper & Clare Smith. Despite pre-race fears of missing the tough time limits, Clare raced through the final cut-off at Great Gable in good time, and kicked on to finish well inside 7hrs.
from Alison W... thanks to all who ran in such hot conditions. We got both men and ladies teams round this really gruelling race. And a very BIG thanks to all the supporters too especially Helen Waddington who carried bottles and bottles of water up to Styhead Tarn which was most appreciated and to Dave who helped Joss Naylor give out water at the road crossing, amidst lots of requests from runners for photos with Joss!

Washburn Valley Relays, Fri 12 July

Ben Sheppard reports ... Good Ilkley performances across the board on a lovely night for picnicking. Which, incidentally, is what Malcolm was doing when he should have been at the prize giving as part of the winning men's team. All were spared the spectacle of us celebrating like we'd taken gold in the Olympic 4x100 by the fact we were oblivious to our momentous victory until the organisers pointed out the team home before us were a mixed team. We were further denied the opportunity to over-celebrate with trophy waving by the fact the organisers had 'temporarily mis-placed' (lost) the 'trophy' (shiny plastic egg cup with handles). Meanwhile the ladies' excellent run was edged out only by another team of talented youngsters, running in Yorkshire vests. Despite another good performance the mixed team could not match Baildon's mixed team, which finished first overall. Thanks to Neil for organising us.

Stirton fell race, Wed 10 July

From Paul stephens ... A lovely little race, a beautiful evening, a little cooler than Tuesday, and a bottle of beer for all finishers. I thought I'd done the race before - back in the 1990s. But I was mistaken. I had raced in the area before - in 1993 and 1995. But it was called Airdale Pikes in those days and organised I believe by 264 (Skipton) Air Training Corps or possibly Clayton-Le-Moors Harriers. Judging from the times it was probably a similar distance but I'm sure the course was different.

After the race walking event there were 10 waves of runners organised on predicted times which meant that you could spectate as well as participate! There was also supper (chilli and cakes) included in the race entry of £5. We had a great time and recommend this race to anyone.

Verbier St Bernard Boucle 110 km Ultra Trail Race, 6/7 July

From Brian Melia ... a beautiful ultra trail race set in and around Verbier, Switzerland, with constant views of the magnificent Grand Combins. The event covered some very high cols which were covered in deep snow making racing very difficult in extreme heat. I finished 26th in 19hrs 38 mins and was pleased to have run so well. Not sure I will attempt it again as the final climb from Loutier to La Chaux is one of the most difficult climbs I have encountered.

Lakeland Trails marathon, Sun 7 July

From Ben Sheppard ... A breathtakingly picturesque circuit of Coniston Water on footpaths and bridleways taking in Tarn Hows and the Beacon Tarn, with views of the lake and the surrounding peaks of the Old Man, Swirl How, Wetherlam and Dow Crags. One other harrier, Ewan Welsh, was up for it too after a spell on the sidelines of late.
Fully marked, well supported, well organised and friendly (the race, not me), highly recommended for trail runners who like to be pampered, road marathoners who fancy a change, and even hard-as-nails fell runners who fancy a soft option.
The heatwave took its toll, the last 7 miles a real slog on an undulating course, but held it together for a PB (it being my first marathon) of 3 hours 43.

Eccup 10, Sun 7 July

From Beth Massey ... The Eccup 10m took place on what must have been the hottest day of the year so far! Not the easiest of courses at the best of times, the undulating route and excessive heat certainly took its toll! The race incorporated the Yorkshire Open and Yorkshire Veterans AA Championships so attracted a good quality field and a record number of entries. It was great to see eight Harriers representing the club in the race and the ladies in particular were well placed in the YVAA Championships. I was first Harrier home in 67mins 40secs finishing 2nd FV40 in the Yorkshire Champs. Caz Farrow also ran well taking 1st FV35 in 69mins 50secs, and Emma Barclay taking 1st FV45 in 70mins 44secs. Martin Archer finished in 69mins 32secs, Anthony Swanepoel 85mins 59secs, David Green 94mins 15secs, Petra Bijsterveld 104mins and Donna Hattersley 104mins 41secs, all really good efforts in tough conditions.

SLMM, 6-7 July

From Paul Stephens ... An unexplored part of the Lake District with superb views out to sea, and across the Duddon Sands, Corney Fell was the location for this years Saunders. And we escaped the worst of the heat both days, although Sunday was a little more humid. This was the 10th SLMM my brother and I had competed in. I guess we were slightly disappointed with our result - 53rd out of 130 finishers in the Carrock Fell category - 20km and 805m on the Saturday and 17km and 840m on the Sunday. Our excuse was that the weather was too good, and the checkpoints too easy to find. But it was still a great weekend, and no injuries or stiffness afterwards. We obviously didn't try hard enough. Other Harriers included John and Sarah Hayes, and Gavin Burgess in the Harter Fell, Rachael and Kevin Gooch in the Kirkfell, and Outi Kamarainen in the Scafell.

Harris half marathon, Sat 6 July

From Henry Heavisides ... The Isle of Harris half marathon was a new experience for me in many respects. Firstly it was a point to point race, starting by the beach on the west coast of Harris with waves crashing in off the Atlantic & finishing in the village of Tarbert 13.1 miles away over several hills (including one big one). Secondly I've never run a half marathon in a howling gale with horizontal rain (fortunately the wind was behind us most of the way). The temperature was only about 12 degrees, yes I know that it's been more than double that at home, so it felt more like mid winter than mid summer. The main hill resembled running up to Langbar, only much bleaker. Apparently there was a record entry for the race today, not sure how many ran, but normally it's about 100. I managed to finish in 1:27:02 which is difficult to judge given the terrain, the weather & the following gale. I ran the second half more than two minutes faster than the first half, reflecting most of the uphill sections being before halfway.
If you're ever in the Western Isles in the summer(?) look out for half marathons organised by Stornoway AC, they promote a series of 5 races on different islands from May to July. This race was very well organised with lots of food for runners at the finish.

Oakworth Haul, Sat 6 July

From Dave Wilby ... A nice low key, fairly local race (5m/650ft) as part of the Oakworth village gala. The terrain takes in plenty of tracks, trails & fields with a few undulations thrown in for good measure on a 'lollipop' style course. I started off well enough and led until just over half way but then detonated in the unrelenting heat (I'd spent the hour before the race praying for snow!) and wobbled home a shabby wreck in 2nd place. Sue Morley faired much better in the heat and had an excellent run to claim 1st place in her age group. A good turnout of approximately 40 runners despite there being loads of higher profile events on across the weekend.
