Race Report: Anglesey Half

An early alarm wake up call (5.30am 😣) meant it was Anglesey Half Marathon day. Sometimes I wonder why we put ourselves through it, and this was how I was definitely feeling at this unsociable hour in the morning. A hot shower and mug of tea soon lifted my spirits.

Press release – February 2017

Here is a round up of the races participated in by members of the club throughout February.

Mad Dog 10K
4 Striders took part in this race along the Southport promenade.  With live band ever kilometer and a mix of serious and fun runners in fancy dress, it is always a race which puts a smile of striders faces, despite being blasted by the wind off the sea!

Race Report - Carsington Water half marathon

It was one of those days when you couldn't decide what to wear. The ambient temperature was mild but there was a strong,  cold wind. I went armed with virtually every clothing combination. 

Race Report - Knypersley Pool 5 Mile Charity Race

Biddulph Running Club, held there annual 'Mayors Charity Race' today at Knypersley Pool, it's a 5 mile trail run around knypersley pool reservoir, followed by a long uphill climb through woodland, over biddulph moor before returning around the lake back to the finish. It's a challenging course, very muddy (trail shoes a must) but equally rewarding with some beautiful scenery.
