Senior Fell Championship update & current standings

Last Sunday’s successful Holme Moss race means we are now two thirds of the way through this year’s Championship, with 10 of the 15 races now completed. The Men’s event is looking very tight, with Phil Hobbs narrowly leading from Jonny McLean & Chris Beadle, whilst for the Ladies, Helen Berry is just ahead of Fran Whitworth.

With the best 7 races to count, there’s still plenty of time to mount a challenge & the next 2 races in August will throw up different challenges. First up is our own short, sharp Denis Stitt race on Thursday 14th followed by the Crowden Horseshoe on Sunday 31st, where you revisit Laddow Rocks, but without the scrambling!

Don’t forget if you can’t run at the Denis Stitt, John Ewart will be very grateful for any offers of help on the night. Also looking a little further ahead in the calendar, we have the 2 major Fell Relays coming up in the autumn. On Sunday 5th October, it’s the Ian Hodgson Mountain relay from Patterdale, where we have entered 2 teams of 8. This is followed by the FRA Fell Relays on Sunday 19th October, which this year is being held near Kirkby Lonsdale. We have entered 4 teams of 6 (Mens, Ladies, V40 & V50), so please make a note in your diary & keep the dates free!

See you on a hill sometime.

Phil Hobbs
