Race-Calendar Newsletter | Week Ending 3rd February 2013

Hi runners,

How many kilometers did you run this week? We’ve been trying to crank out the kilometers. Problem is, I have a dodgy knee, so running is becoming more of a struggle everyday. But that’s life hey…..

Remember if you have a question on running (or a dodgy knee like me!), and want some advice, just pop a comment up on our Race-Calendar Facebook Page, I Love Running. We have over 60,000 fans who are runners from all over the world. Chances are if you have a question or a running problem you are dealing with, one of our fellow running fans will have an answer, or experience in the problem. So use it wisely, it’s a massive resource you guys can use……on us!

Talking about advice, our resident running expert Steve Haywood, has just put up a post on the Race-Calendar site after he recently attented the Dewsbury 10K Road Race, Yorkshire, UK, 3rd February 2013. If you want some advice and tips on bad weather running, you MUST check out this report.

Race Reports & Photos:

  • Race Report: Thanet Roadrunners’ Mountain Bike Duathlon in Birchington, Kent, UK on 13th January 2013 Many congratulations to all the runners and riders in the John Flitch Mountain Bike Duathlon. The snow kept away, but it was certainly chilly with a bracing coastal breeze, as well as testing going! Thanks to race director, the team and all the hardy marshals. We’ll present the profits to the North Foreland School Horticulture Project in due course.
  • Race Report: Dewsbury 10K Road Race, Yorkshire, UK, 3rd February 2013 This popular and well established mid winter 10k has been on my list of races to do for some years so this year I finally got round to entering early as there are no entries on the day. On a bitterly cold morning with a strong wind blowing we all made our way across Dewsbury town centre to the start on the town’s inner ring road. The race is an out and back course along the A652 through Batley and it was evident to me that the wind would be in our faces on the outward 5k.
  • Race Report: 5th Annual Junior Tiger Fun Run, Texas, USA, 4th February 2013 The weather turned out beautifully for the 5th Annual Jr. Tiger Fun Run and Tiger Marketplace. The 5th anniversary of this unique, collaborative fundraising event was marked by the addition of the Tiger Marketplace, 7th & 8th grade and parent’s race, and inter-school competition!
