THE latest instalment of the Hardmoors trail series was held in Farndale with different distance options available across the challenging moorland terrain.

The “marathon” option included 29.2 miles (three more than a normal marathon) with well over 4,000 feet of climb.

Pickering Running Club's Alison Hyde completed the course in a very determined 5 hours 48 minutes to finish as well deserved second lady and first in her age category.

Heather Farrow also had a superb race to finish in 6 hours and 57 minutes as first in her age category.

The “half marathon” option also included some extra “hardmoors miles” coming in at 16.3 miles with over 2,000 feet of elevation.

Chris Adams had a cracker of a race to finish in 3 hours 14 minutes and so did Amanda Welburn-Smith, finishing in 3 hours 18 mins.

It was a lovely day for the Run For All Jane Tomlinson 10k through the streets of York.

The race was along closed roads and promised a fast course for the 5,000 participants.

Pacey Paul Robinson was the only PRC representative and had a superb run in an amazing 44 minutes 2 seconds and first in his age category.

Tuesday night was the perfect evening for the two Pickering Running Club members who headed out to the coast for the Ravenscar Rumble.

It is a 4.7 mile fell race organised by the National Trust including tricky descents and a very challenging 800 feet climb over the course of one mile.

First back for the club was Russ Grayson, who completed the course in a highly respectable 40.04 in 16th place.

Michael Hetherton finished the tough course in 48.38.
