Entries being taken for second Stainland Trail Race on September 21 which features many Huddersfield competitors

Stadium Runners use event for championship

Stainland Lions

Stainland Lions are looking to build on the success of last year’s inauguaral Stainland Trail race with the second running of the event.

The race, to be staged on Sunday, September 21, is 10K on a multi-terrain course through countryside taking in tracks, woodland trails and lanes around the village and Stainland Dean.

As the race starts and finishes at Stainland recreation ground, the runners may notice the odd hill included in order to get down the valley and back, but race director Tony Mott said: “It wouldn’t be a Stainland race if it was flat and with the superb scenery nobody notices the inclines anyway.

“We had some really positive feedback from last year, people know it is not a ‘personal best’ course, but it is certainly not boring either!

“It’s tough, but not too tough to be tackled by runners of all abilities.”

The race will start at 10.30am from Stainland recreation ground (HX4 9HF), and the 1885 pub will be open before the race for registration and will be serving food afterwards.

There will be a goody bag and Tech T-shirt for all finishers as well as prizes in all categories.

Runners must be over 17 years of age, entry is £10 for UKA affiliated runners or £12 for unattached, and entry forms can be downloaded from the Stainland Lions website club races section with postal entries closing on September 17, and numbers collected on the day.

Runners can also enter on-line via John Schofield’s UK results or Runners World websites, or simply enter on the day for a £2 supplement.

Any enquiries can be made via the Lions’ website or to Race director Tony Mott on 07827 016181, while Stadium runners based in Huddersfield have selected this event as one of their championship races.
