Race Report: Yorkshire Warrior


Date: 18th April 2015 Where: Harrogate, Yorkshire What: 10 Mile OCR “I JUST CAN’T DECIDE!!” – Me, crippled with indecision (nothing out of the ordinary) regarding whether to wear long sleeves or not, before committing to running/climbing/squelching/crawling my way through 10 miles on a brisk but sunny Yorkshire morning. Yes, we’re rolling back to April here again folks. Yorkshire Warrior boasted ten miles of obstacle filled fun near Harrogate.      Thanks to Papa Greene for the ace race photography! I’m going to start at the end for this one, and express my disappointment with the following: Not receiving a … Read More

Race Report: The Adrenalin Rush

The BEST burger I've ever eaten. Probably.

Date: 12th April 2015 Where: Richmond, Yorkshire What: 9km of trails & 1km of The Krypton Factor Assault Course The Adrenalin Rush wasn’t Team Victorious Secret’s first choice of OCR for this particular date, I’ll be honest. We were initially going to take part in The Suffering which was unfortunately cancelled a couple of weeks before. Reluctant as usual to take rest days, we found a substitute that was a good price and seemed to offer some good terrain. Richmond isn’t really in Yorkshire. Well, technically perhaps it is, but it felt like the arse-end of the M1, just beyond … Read More

Run Report – George Fisher, Run with Ricky


Date: 28th February Who: George Fisher  What: 10k-ish Trail Run led by Ricky Lightfoot My first “Run Report” – as opposed to race! George Fisher have organised group runs every few months over the last year or so, in partnership with Salomon Running sponsored local athlete Ricky Lightfoot.  I love the Lake District, if you hadn’t guessed that already! It’s where I grew up, and where I’ll always have a bit of space to call home at my parents house. Escaping Leeds, as much as I love the city that has become my home since, is great, and to be able to … Read More

Race Report: The Great Yorkshire Pieathlon


Date: 14th December Who: Team OA What: 6k of trails and pie I honestly can’t remember how I happened upon the pieathlon, but I do remember the immediate sense of awe and wonder at the sound of it. Pie and running? Why, yes please! Pre-race training? Well… I was hoping that my natural skills in being able to scoff a whole lot more food than strictly natural for a human of my size would pay off. The pre-race email itself was marvellous in itself… We have a baggage area in the cafe, please don’t leave valuable pie in it as … Read More

Race Report: National Trust Nostell Priory Night Run


Date: 29th November Who: The National Trust What: ‘Adventurer’ 6k(ish) Night Trail Run I’m not gonna lie- I found out about the National Trust Night Run series through reading some of the wonderful running blogs I follow and when I found out they were staging more around the country, I hoped there would be one nearby. Luckily, there was! Based at Nostell Priory, near Wakefield not too far from Leeds – it sounded like the perfect opportunity to try out off-road running in the dark. All I needed was a head torch… And in addition I roped my other half … Read More
