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

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.

An ongoing series of 4 races around the Peak District. Its a get to as many checkpoints as possible in the given time to score points format. Its a bit virtual at the moment ie you have to download the app which records you as you run a about looking for the checkpoints. This also means you get a few weeks window to go do your run.

This event was number 2 in the series and very much in our backyard starting at Middleton and the checkpoints are dotted about our local loops.

After 2 events Pete is in 2nd place just 20 points off 1st and Dani is in 32nd (1st in her category)



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.

10. Pete Watson 41:18
