Haltemprice Road Runners

The sometimes conflicting interests of track and field, road and country in the 1950s was sometimes the cause of tensions within the club. After some years a number of the keenest road runners, tired of the ramifications of the track and its users, broke away to form the Haltemprice Road Runners Club and for a number of years enjoyed considerable success.

Former Hull, Harrier, Mike Kirkwood, for example won the South London ‘30’ and the London to Brighton in successive months. A few years later, Brian Cooke won the South London ‘30’. In more recent years this small club has organised the popular Haltemprice 10K Road Race.
