Club Championship Road Race

Having got back into the swing of things a bit recently with 3 Stag Trophy Races and the Round Leighton Buzzard Relay in the last 3 months, we were finally able to get back to racing Club Championship races, with the first in the road champs this year taking place at Blisworth for the 5 mile distance.

As is often the case at Blisworth the evening turned out to be one perfect for running with an otherwise overcast day turning into some welcome evening sun with very little wind. Those who have done the course though will know that it’s not the weather that you really need to worry about! read more

Langmay Trophy 2021

Langmay Trophy – 2021

A beautiful Easter Sunday and near perfect running conditions welcomed our competitors to the 2021 Langmay Trophy. It’s a welcome return to some competitive action and the perfect introduction to the new route for this LBAC staple event. A good turn out with a mixture of new members and seasoned runners made for some good racing with some excellent performances across the field.

In terms of pure timing Jordan Clay came across the line first in a very impressive 25.13. Second home was Simon Coombes in 27.45 with Will Eastman third home in 30.14 just pipping Stuart Read at the finish. Fastest lady was Ruth Eastman in 34.45 followed by Amy Farnfield in 35.36, and Amy Inchley in 36.52. read more

Mixing with the Big Boys and Girls

The SEAA 12 and 6 Stage Road relays.

24th March 2019

The SEAA Men’s 12-stage and the Women’s 6-stage Road Relays returned to Stantonbury in Milton Keynes  on Sunday 24 March and it was great to see two teams from LBAC mixing it up with the best in the south of England.

Both the men’s and women’s races are a mix of short and long legs, with the short being just a few metres more than 5k and the long being approximately 7.7k.

After a lot of chopping and changing with people unable to run due to injuries, it was an achievement in itself that we managed to have the full compliment of 18 runners. read more

Leighton 10 2018- No Rain, No Gain

Leighton 10 2018 – Not a washout!

After last year’s large field and “miserable” conditions, this year was even bigger and even more miserable! With a summer of sun a distant memory and a week preceding the Leighton 10 of dry weather it was almost inevitable that Sunday 23 September would be wetter than an otter’s pocket.

The roads were emulating streams as the volunteers arrived to put out the mile markers and set up the drinks stations, but with the runners arriving too, their enthusiasm was not washed away. read more

5k Road Club Champs

5k Club Champs – Aylesbury parkrun

Another sunny morning greeted the  LBAC runners as they commuted to Aylesbury for the 5k Road Club championship race. As has been custom the last few years, the 5k race has taken place at a local parkrun and this year Aylesbury was the location of choice.

Purple and Gold vests packed the starting line with 28 runners turning out in the Meadowcroft area of Aylesbury.

As is custom with parkruns, the start was a fast one with runners haring off between the trees. The route itself follows the River Thame and is fairly flat and fast, but with a few tricky corners and slight inclines it can also sap your energy somewhat. read more
