Crowden Horseshoe Fell Race 2014 Chris Beadle

Chris Beadle - first Holmfirth athlete across the line

A handful of Holmfirth Harriers turned out on Sunday at the local Crowden Horseshoe race, a counter in their Fell Championship series.  The 8 mile route from the campsite climbed up to the Pennine Way, above Laddow Rocks, over to Black Hill and back down to Crowden through some very damp peat bogs! Chris Beadle made his usual late appearance, just 10 minutes before the start, but his unusual race tactic paid off as he was first Holmfirth athlete across the line in 14th place (1:12). Dan Shaw was close behind in 16th place (1:13) and Helen Berry was 2nd lady (1st V40) in 24th place (1:16). Club Fell Secretary, Phil Hobbs, was 41st and Paul Fearns 51st.
