The Grim Up North Summer Evening Series is a collection of events now in it’s second year for 2022. The series is aimed at keeping runners motivated (and race fit) over the summer months. With the exception of race 1 which was 4 or 8 miles the remaining races in the series offer the choice of 5K and 10K, held each Wednesday at 18:45 and their motto ‘rock up and run’ means there’s no need for pre race entry as it’s entry on the night only, turn up pay your fee and you’re in! In addition, this year they are running a championship where each runner’s five fastest times of the series count, trophies are then awarded for first male and 1st female in each distance with overall winners being announced at the end of the series.
Destinations in the series include: Blubberhouses, Bingley, Kirkstall, Saltaire, Marsden, Slawit & Cromwell Bottom (Elland). Eccleshill’s Sarah Rawlings & Sarah Myers ‘rocked up’ for the final race in the series welcoming the much cooler conditions this week. Sarah Myers had a change this week completing the 5k in 29:26. Whilst Sarah Rawlings stayed with the 10k distance finishing in 55:45 Well done on completing all 7 races in the series Ladies and a massive well done to Sarah Rawlings who accumulated the most points to be crowned overall series winner of the 10k!
