Husband and wife duo Dave and Julie Keeling both set new PB’s at Rother Valley parkrun. Dave finished in 24:39 PB by 54 secs and Julie in 26:37 PB by a huge 1min 27 secs and 1st Lady in age category.

Clowne’s ultra-runners Steve Battle and Richard Hind each completed long distance events. Steve took on the local Robin Hood 100 achieving a new personal best with a time of 24 hours and 50 minutes. Richard headed further north for the Hardmoors 60, a gruelling 62 miles and 3500m of ascent along the Cleveland Way from Guisborough to Filey completing the event in 13 hours 32 minutes.

CRR Ladies travelled to the Yorkshire hills to take part in the 2016 Wineathlon, this year opting to run dressed as pink ‘118’ characters. Run across 9 miles of countryside with wine stations replacing water stations and everyone made it to the finish.
