The Team

Team RodillianToday was a day that my running friends and I have looking forward to for quite some time, our very own local off-road ten miler, the Temple Newsam Ten.  What can I say? It was quite simply a triumph.  Challenging but fun, it has downhills, uphills, mud, water, more mud and amazing sourroundings.  It was also incredibly well organised and marshalled by St Theresa’s Athletic Club (STAC); it must be a daunting prospect for a local running club to take on and they certainly lived up to and exceeded everyone’s expectations.  It’s great to be part of a team such as STAC and my own running club, Rodillian Runners (based in Stanley, Wakefield) and we had a great turnout of souls willing to step up to this most challenging of races.  Being part of a team like our club gives you a load of support and encouragement.  There is also friendly competition to motivate you because this was the first race of our 2016 championship where we all compete across a range of races with our results adjusted for age and sex!

As for the Temple Newsam Ten; man that was hard! And, a very very well done to all at STAC who put this gem together!

TNT route on the day!
