An action packed weekend of running

What a weekend of running! I’m sure many of us kicked off the weekend watching Kipchoge smashing the sub 2 hour marathon barrier. Followed on Sunday by the Female marathon World Record being broken after 16 years by Brigid Kosgei! Saturday then saw the start of our Couch 2 5k programme, expertly put together and organised by Coach Hatton. It’s great to see that so many of you have volunteered to help out with over the...

Race Round-Up #28 – 30 June 2019

Well…what a weekend! I think it is only fitting that this week’s race report is dedicated to the amazing achievements that took place over 24 hours at Leeds Endure. The weekend started Friday morning when a group of us headed up to Bramham Park to secure our pre-planned camping spot. After marking out our territory for the weekend (seriously don’t mess with the MFR ladies!!), we began the marathon task of putting up tents, and...

It was also nice to have Nick back with...

Making the most of the lighter evenings, we welcome back the return of the mid-week evening races starting with one of our Club Championship picks –The City of Manchester...

Race Roundup #25 – 02/06/2019

With 28 of us taking over the YHA in Haworth, condensing at least a years’ worth of hill training over the course of 3 fun-fill days (balancing all that running out with a 48 hour snack-a-thon); MFR representation out on the racing scene has been fairly quite this week. That said, we did have three races that took place this weekend, firstly with Pete Greatbanks participating in the Big Bala Swim (1500m)! Surrounded by the beautiful...
