It was off-roading in Yorkshire for those Quakers that raced last week, with two very different events on the calendar.

The latest championship race took place at Harewood House, just outside Leeds. First home for the club over the multi-terrain 10K distance was David Todd in 43:39, followed by Peter Dodds (50:21), Phill Hall (51:15) and James Simpson (54:26).

Meanwhile in the Yorkshire Dales, those runners who fancied something a bit longer headed to Grassington to complete the Trollers Trot. Over the 12 mile distance, Phill Hall completed the route in 2:19:58, while over the 25 mile distance, Dave Thompson finished in 4:09:22 (and second in his age category), along with Annette Clarke (5:14:50), Gary Read (5:16:21), Gavin Armstrong (5:16:22), Charlie Bogg (5:28:23) and Emily Beaumont (5:47:17).
