Temple Newsam Hill Challenge
THE QUICKEST TIME HAS BEEN BROKEN – Terry Midgley has just stormed round on the 21st of November in 01:15:13 to push John Robson 01:16:55 into second place. Quote from Terry’s Strava ” STAC Top Trumps: Was practice – ended up doing them all. WARNING do not run this course in the rain in flats. Fell 3 times, nearly stopped really, slippy out there. Do it again next week in trails”
Simply awesome Terry – i’d be scary to think how quick you could go under favorable conditions
Its been a busy week for the Temple Newsam Hills with 4 runners having completed the “all in one” challenge. Massive congratulations to Sarah Waite (01:52:21), Julie Heslegrave (01:55:17), Richard Cooper (01:55:38) and Becca Hattrell (01:56:32) on their runs. Of the 13 runners to have completed the circuit they logged the new 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th quickest times,
Julie also held the new quickest lady time for 4 days until it was bettered by just under 3 minutes by Sarah on Sunday,
Anyone else fancy giving them a crack before the year ends?
All In One – Full Leaderboard
All In One – Numerical Order Leaderboard
To celebrate our love for Fell ,Trail and Hill Climbs – 15 separate Hill Segments have been chosen within the confines of Temple Newsam Estate.
These have been logged as STRAVA segments – apologies to the non STRAVA users out there (however you can manually run them if you like)
The aim is for you to complete all 15 and then your times will be automatically logged in the Strava Leaderboards. All climbs have been categorised based on their average gradient – Easy <5%, Medium 5-8% or Hard 8+%
All segments start with the letters SH and have a definite start and end point (see guides in the downloads section for details) and using these should mean that your segments are logged.
A “collect them all” chart has been made for you to record your progress
A Completers Certificate is also available for you to print out once you have completed the challenge (big thanks to Malcolm Lavery for creating this).
There is also a seperate “all in one” challenge for you to attempt – the aim is to complete them as one run with the clock starting from the start of the first segment and stopping at the end of the last (in any order you like). A leaderboard of “all in one” times is in the downloads section below. We also will rank your runs by overall distance and climb efficiency.
Please be aware that farmers fields are “out of bounds” unless there is a footpath or bridleway across them.
Old runs – i.e. before the “go live” day of Hill Top Trumps will not count – expect for the purposes of segment leaderboards as Strava doesn’t allow you to set a from date. (22/06/17)
