15/05/22 Eyam Half Marathon

Organised by the village as their annual fundraiser its a beautiful but rather pokey Half. Its has 1500 feet of climb that's rolling making it rather challenging and not exactly a PB route. We had 2 runners out who both set club records.. :)

164. Dani Watson 01:59:47 (ROY Female Record)

264. Tim Nixon 02:13:43 (ROY Male Record + M60 Record)

20/03/22 Wolfs Pit

The fell race that tends to kick off the sunny weather racing season. We did have the sunshine this year though the starting field was its traditional freezing. The route is about 5.6 miles with 1476 feet of climb jammed mostly into the 2 climbs as you circle round Shatton Moor.

Distance: 1mile

The 1st team invitational of the (nothing to do with) Beer Mile.

We had 3 teams go to head and a 4th team time trialing. In the individual race Youlgrave Harrier's Pete dominated the field taking 12 seconds off his own course record and recording a spectacular time of 07:26.

In the team championships it was far closer with Redhill Runners taking the victory by just 6 seconds from Youlgrave Harriers. Erewash Valley came in a brave 3rd. Round 2 for the overall Beer Champs will be the CYC in July and should be a close battle.

There was also a time trial before the main race with Formula One running club laying down times for their own in club battle. Their times will be carried forward to the CYC where its a sum of the times over the 2 races for the series champs.

The CYC (vertical beer mile) will be in July and invites with the details will go out closer to the time as the 1st rule of beer mile is that it has nothing to do with....

Beacons Ultra

Distance: 47 mile

Climb: 6000 feet

A mixed trail/mountain/canal/road ultra around the Breacon Beacons. Basically a full tour of the area taking in the full collection of terrain including the big cold hills.

Pete was out there representing Youlgrave Harriers..and he did a very fine job of it. He picked up the 1st podium finish by anybody in a Youlgrave vest, so he's in the history page (when we write it..its only been 9 months since we opened).

Short Tour of Bradwell

Category: AS

Distance: 7.8km

Climb: 390m

Venue: Bradwell Sports Pavilion, opposite Samuel Fox Inn, Bradwell, S33 9ST

Grid ref: 175818

Skills & experience: PM

Part of a series of events that the village of Bradwell put on throughout the year. All put on to raise funds for causes in and around Bradwell...and to give us a great series of races to play in.

The short tour had plenty of poke to it with plenty of tough ups and downs, how ever there was a flattish bit to attempt to rescue some time if the legs were still working. A highly recommended low key and well organised race to pop in the diary for next year. Unfortunately no cakes this year because of the covid restrictions.

We had 3 runners out and everybody made it back in 1 piece. Pete was 1st back in 10th place doing some fine advertising for Youlgrave Harries.

30/05/21 Escape to Llama Mountain: A Hill Race

Youlgrave Harrier's 1st ever event. It was a 1.4 mile uphill race on Mawstone Lane leading up out of Youlgrave to the Llamas at the summit. It was run as a test event to dip our toe into race organizing with an entry list consisting of club friends and members. Tom Stokes took the win determined via the WAVA handicap scoring system setting the gun time and WAVA score course record in the process.

Thank you all to running and helping out, special mentions to Charlies event management and Yas's timing solutions. It was greatly appreciated and helped us gain valuable info for future full events. We hope you enjoyed the fun of sprinting up Llama Mountain, meeting the ladies and the reclusive Craig. We'll look forward to seeing you again sometime in the late summer for our 1st open event which is penciled in as the 3:3 race a 6 mile loop with.. 3m up , 3m down.
