Helen Berry of Holmfirth Harriers has made it double gold at the weekend by taking the English Vet 40 Fell Championship to go with her British title, secured a fortnight ago, and a silver in the open Championship.

The final race in the English Fell Championship six-race series took place on Saturday in the Forest of Bowland, from the Hodder Valley show. The ‘short’ race was deceptively tough, with over 1500 feet of climb in just 4 miles.

With the hard work done in previous Championship races, Saturday was almost a formality to complete the Championship. Her position of 5th overall and 2nd vet 40 on Saturday wasn’t her best of the season, but it was more than enough to clinch the title and to take an impressive silver medal in the open English Fell Championship; one up from her bronze two years ago.
