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...

Race Roundup #22 – 21/04/2019

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I’ve got a double race roundup for you today. Rewinding back to Saturday 13th, Rob and Linda were in the Lakes running the Hawkshead Trail 16k. The scenery and the views are amazing, which is a welcome distraction from some of the brutal climbs – the Coffin Trail being one of them, a challenging 1 mile ascent up some steep and rocky terrain.
