WINTER MAY BE OVER BUT WE CAN STILL DO THE SIR TITUS TROT – SUNDAY 2ND MAY, 2021

posted in: Race Reports | 0

Hosted by ‘It’s Grim up North Running’ ( one of the few races companies hosting actual races at the moment) The Sir Titus Trot in keeping with lots of IGUN races gone before has previously been postponed several times due to the ongoing battle with Covid-19. To quote “We may have lost the battle but the war to get you running is ongoing”. And they did just that, and with this in mind the Winter Sir Titus Trot was rescheduled noting that the weather will simply be a little warmer! It certainly was! A lovely, brisk but sunny day greeted runners for this lovely out and back along the Leeds to Liverpool canal starting in the picturesque village of Saltaire. The tow path along the canal was perfect underfoot so this flat, out and back gave runners the opportunity to push themselves to the next distance. With seven distances available there truly was something for everyone. Registration was held one hundred yards from the start at the Caroline Social Club, Saltaire. As always, there was an array of homemade cakes for all of the runners and their supporters, and finishers were treated to the usual chocolate, beer and also abespoke medal. Annie Kisluk and David Goodyear chose the 10k distance and once again there were staggered starts with both the Eccleshill Road Runners participants starting in the afternoon wave around 1pm. Annie and David’s results are still to be confirmed. Well Done!!
