Blackamoor Chase - Thursday 26th June 2008 (full results)
On a night which brought back memories of the rain from 12 months ago, 4 hardy Striders and 143 runners in total faced horizontal rain and wind to take part in the 4th of the Totley Fell Race Series 2008; very difficult conditions underfoot even with fell shoes. Despite the weather, which you soon forgot about when you hit the first severe hill, it was a very enjoyable event. Great credit to the marshalls out on the course.

Three Lakes Challenge - Sunday 22nd June 2008 (full results)
Strider Colin West took the prize as first vet (a t-shirt) but he needed to thank his sporting competitors who called him back instead of letting him ride off into the distance when he had inexplicably taken the wrong route within a mile of the finish. On a hot and windy day three other Striders took part in this event which surely deserves more support, if not for the tea, coffee and superb home made cakes which were there for the combatants at the end of the race. Winning time 1:39.25, 109 finishers.

Darrington Fun Run - Saturday 21st June 2008
Mike cleverly choses his races. In this 5 mile race promoted as a 'Fun Run' there were 146 timed finishers and err....to quote the organisers "The timekeepers did a great job but a couple of runners lost numbers, finished together and the timing sheet went soggy" ie there were six untimed runners!

Manchester 10km - Sunday 18th May 2008

Report by Trevor Brown

I ran the Manchester 10km on Sunday 18th May to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society and my reasons for this can be seen on www.justgiving.com/trevorbrown . So far my friends and acquaintances have helped me raise £1,110. I am keeping the web site open for the next few weeks so if anyone would like to donate to this very worthy cause it would be much appreciated. As for the race the weather was sunny but not hot, and the atmosphere could not have been better and I'm sure a great deal of money was raised for good causes. My position was 4,378th out of 23,942 finishers.

Heaven and Hell Half Marathon, Perth - Sunday 6th April 2008 (full results)

Scots Savaged!!

Report by our Special Correspondent

Scottish Athletes were made to suffer Mike Savage as he took a remarkable third place in the Perth Road Runners, Heaven and Hell Half Marathon on Sunday 6th April 2008. 86 minutes may not seem like a quick time but the course includes two climbs of 400ft and 700ft - more like a fell race!
