Road League 10th April ****LODGE MOOR****** change of venue

The original venue for race 1 (penistone ) is still under snow……….

Race 1 10th April     Lodge Moor, Sheffield   Start 19.00 hours

Race HQ  Three Merry Lads     Sat Nav info  S10 4LJ

This is a new venue and course. From Sheffield take the A57 (Glossop) which goes past Sheffield University and Weston Park Hospital. Continue on the A57 to the Crosspool area and turn left into Sandygate Road just past a petrol station. It is sign posted Hallam F.C. Carry on for two miles and park on the road side beyond the bus turning circle as far as the Sportsman pub on the left. There is parking in the car park for the playing fields just past the Sportsman but we may use this for the finish. If you park there you will not be able to get out until the last runner has finished. The start is at the Three Merry Lads a little further up the road. Do not block gates or driveways. The car park at the Three Merry lads can be used if you are staying for a drink of food. Toilets are in the pub. Please respect other pub users. The course is rather hilly and rural so definitely NO earphones.

East Hull 20 Results

Brian, Susie, Dennis and Steve turned out for this one.  It’s a flat course with a couple of lumps but something makes it hard going, maybe the tough last 4 miles where nothing gets any closer on the long, straight, old railway path……….and it is 20 miles! the unremarkable finish on the path at side of the road doesn’t help with the sense of achievement either, most finished at the clock only to be told to go the extra 5 yards to the umbrella covered ‘finish’ line across path……
