Neil Featherby's Hare & Hound - 26 December 2014

This is a charity run organised by Neil Featherby, Sportslink, on Boxing Day, through Horsford woods & Felthorpe.   Phil Cooper (Captain), Nick Bowden, Shaun Webb and Leigh Nobes entered a team of clowns, in their second Hare & Hound.  After winning last year they were given a large handicap and started last.  The run is following a trail set by Neil (as the hare) of dots and markers and goes through bogs, woods, ditches, and streams.  Obviously the off road races that we do during the year has paid off as from starting last the team came third overall!


Mytholroyd Fell Race - 14 December 2014

 Nick Caley, Nick Bowden, Eddie Alford, Leigh Nobes, James Beadle, and Jenni Egmore, as support, travelled to Hebdon Bridge, West Yorkshire, for a weekend away.  After walking/cycling on the Saturday the fell race was on Sunday.  It was 6.5 miles with 1700' of climb.  This was Nick B's fourth time, Eddie's third time, James' second and Nick C and Leigh's first.  

Nick Caley did a great run, coming 17th, for his second fell run.  He did do a belly slide, lost his number and shoe in a bog!  Eddie came next with a stylish tumble into the brambles on the way to the finish.  James shortly followed, then Nick B and Leigh.  They all had excellent runs for a group of Flatearthers from Norfolk!


Second Horsford Cross Country - 7 December 2014 

The second Horsford Cross Country had ideal conditions with heavy rain the night before.  Although there was talk of a number of the ladies completing their first Horsford cross country, Leona Broughton and Kay Harvey were the only ones who turned up and really enjoyed it.  Hopefully at the next one there will be more
