Race Roundup #18 – 10/03/2019

What a difference a week makes, sunny Benidorm couldn’t have seemed further away from wet and windy Manchester, but that didn’t stop us going and doing race or two! We had members taking part in 3 races this weekend: the Trafford 10k, the Liverpool Half and the Irwel Valley 20mile. Trafford is always popular and the wind, rain and hail didn’t put us off. Myself, Rob, Dave, Jordan, Amy, Jacqui, Paula, Alex, Linda and...

Race Roundup #17 – 04/03/2019

As you may have been aware, last weekend’s racing was all about the Benidorm Half and 10k and a swarm (collective noun for a group of runners, anyone?) of us jetted down to the Costa Blanca for the annual club holiday. One or two in the group may have had some initial reservations about the resort, but the race itself was perfect.

Race Roundup #16 – 24/02/2019

It was a weekend of 10 mile races this weekend, with members taking part in two races! Robert D and Peter B ran the Rhyl 10 mile on Saturday. Robert started with a cold and an injury and went on to get a PB in a time of 1:27:01, well done! Peter ran a super speedy 1:09:29, setting himself a PB with MFR. Then on Sunday, myself, Chris, Ed, Rachel, Dan E and Foxy went up to Radcliffe to run the Terry Nortley 10 mile. I ran it last year...

The weather at the weekend was perfect for a spot of racing, and a number of MFR were out doing just that. It’s great to see so many of you searching out new events and going a little ‘off piste’, in Pete’s words! Amy was back in her home county of Lincolnshire to run the St Valentine’s 30km. There were apparently one or two hills, but seemingly nothing that a bit of positive thinking (and a bit of swearing) couldn’t overcome. Well...

Race Roundup #14 – 10/02/2019

This past weekend’s racing was dominated by cross country, with the fifth and final match in the Manchester Area Cross Country League taking place on Saturday at University Playing Fields/Kenworthy Woods. This event, more than any other in the season, was well and truly a whole team event, which saw many of you run, marshal and support. The stars of the show were undoubtedly our fantastic volunteers – James M, Jono, Rachel, John L,...
