About the area

These areas are blessed with diverse terrain, including undulating trails, riverside paths, serene countryside, and disused railway lines to explore. So whether you fancy an amble in the Yorkshire Dales, or a jaunt along the Humber Estuary, North and East Yorkshire is something of a runners’ playground.

Hull Marathon

These playgrounds are a breeding ground for running clubs. As one local runner puts it: “I’m not sure there’s a town in these areas that doesn’t have a running club.” Clubs with rich histories abound including Harrogate Harriers, Beverley AC, and Hornsea Harriers. In addition to these traditional clubs are newer ones like Bentham Beagles, and Yorkshire Wolds Runners. Those seeking a more informal environment can join groups such as Giggleswick Gazelles. Gazelles’ founder Jill Eccleston tells us why she gave up a career in admin to coach sports full-time.

With clubs and groups come races – lots of ‘em. Events that fill up within hours are Beverley 10K and Snake Lane 10. The recently resurrected RB Hull Marathon has already proved a big hit with the locals and is set to grow further in 2016. The Brass Monkey Half Marathon has been many a Yorkshire runners’ choice to kick off the new year and hill lovers (they do exist) regularly enjoy Richmond Castle 10K – described as the hilliest 10k in the UK. We speak to Elizabeth Sowter from the race’s organisers Swaledale Runners. She tells us how the club has developed since its inception in 1986 and why they decided to ditch the ‘Road’ part of their name.

SPOTLIGHT ON BRIDLINGTON ROAD RUNNERS

Who are Bridlington Roadrunners?

110 member club that meets every Tuesday and Thursday at Bridlington Sports Hall.  The club was formed shortly after the inaugural Bridlington half marathon in 1983 by John Potter and will celebrate its 30th anniversary later this year.

Did you know?

In the early years, Bridlington half marathon was organised by the local football club, but Bridlington Roadrunners took over the organisation of the race more than 20 years ago.

What is involved in a normal session? Our training tends to change depending on the season.  In the winter, we go on a 7.5 mile pack run around the perimeter of the town.  When the weather is kinder, we try and go into the countryside for a similar distance run.  During the summer months the club also visits local villages in the surrounding area for ‘away day’ social training runs.

Interesting fact?

In the early years a group from the club once ran a 700 mile relay from Bridlington to Bad Salzuflen in Germany, which is twinned with the city.  (Bridlington is also twinned with Milau in southern France, but I imagine that would have taken a lot longer to run!). 

New members welcome?

We are not an elitist club - new members are always welcome!

Races in the year?

We are really active when it comes to racing, but the most popular events are Driffield Mucky Duck 8.5 Mile, Hornsea 1/3rd Marathon, Pocklington Snake Lane 10 Mile and Scarborough 10K.  The local Sewerby parkrun 5K is well supported every Saturday morning, it has proven to be a big hit with new members.      

Keeping it exciting? 

We hold several races during the year which are just for club members - some of these are ‘handicap’ races and others are straight races with what is called a ‘sealed handicap’.  These races are great for morale and can be really competitive!

We’re intrigued...

Basically, a handicap race gives even the slowest member of the club a chance to beat faster runners - and even to win a race.  The handicap is based on your usual race times.  At the start the slowest runner sets off first, followed by quicker and quicker runners.  In theory everyone should finish the race at the same time - but in practice this never happens.  In a sealed handicap the race is completed as normal and the quickest runner will win.  Then, after the race, runners’ times are amended by their handicap time and this produces a completely different result sheet.

Any future stars?

Phil Taylor won the recent East Hull 20 Mile and also Hull marathon in 2012.  In 2012 he also came third in Chester marathon together with several other highly placed finishes.  Cathy Wood recently won the 32 mile Haworth Hobble pairs race and also the Yorkshire off road ultra-marathon at Whitby.

Club Motto?  None officially, but unofficially you could say: “Everyone who enjoys running is welcome!”
