Northern Running Guide
Social Events
‘Periods in Landscape’ is a personal dialogue; hours spent wandering, climbing, falling through the hills and fells and how these moments can captivate and develop the character of a person.Timothy uses landscape painting to further his understanding of running and its relationship with nature, but also as a tool to confront and calm his ongoing battle with depression. As an ultra runner, Timothy spends long periods of time focusing on the body and how it cooperates with a particular environment. This ongoing series attempts to extract such meditative qualities, creating quick expressive moments that can either break or enhance the flow of running'.
Away Runs


The away run for April on Thursday 26th April will be from the Surprise View car park at Otley Chevin near the Royalty pub.  There will be options for 4, 5 and 7 mile runs and vists to the Royalty pub afterwards for refreshments.


The May away run on 31st May will be the club championship Apperley Bridger Canter 10k trail race from Woodhouse Grove school and we can retire to the Stansfield Arms pub afterwards for drinks and a chat.

February Strider of the Month

Stewart Spink - Stewart has been utterly dedicated to his training. He’s tried various techniques to improve his running performance and over the years has slowly chipped away at his PB times. It certainly looks like his hard work is starting to pay dividends. Since the start of 2018 he has beaten 3 of his PB time’s at different distances. In January, he finally went sub 1hr30 at the Brass Monkey half marathon. He started off Februaury with sub 40 mins at the Dewsbury 10k and has finished the month with a new marathon PB of 3:06 in Tokyo (despite running 26.5 miles).
