Denis Stitt Memorial Race

Thursday 13th August

We had a great turn out last Thursday evening for the Denis Stitt race, with numbers swollen thanks to Penistone Footpath Runners who had included the race in their Championship series, sending 30 athletes.  Holmfirth also had a good turnout, with some first-timers amongst the 22 amber vests.

The forecast rain held off until during the race, a welcome refresher for those competing and it kept the midges at bay for the marshalls.  English Junior Fell Championship silver medallist, Chris Law, used the race as a test for the World Mountain Trials in Bets-y-Coed next weekend which is also a two-lap course.  He had a superb race, finishing well clear of the rest of the field and led Holmfirth to win the team prize, supported by Jonny McLean in 4th and older brother, Jo Law, in 5th.

The Holmfirth ladies also took the team prize, with Helen Berry in 7th overall (1st lady & 1st FV40), Jordan Mullinger 21st (2nd lady) and Karen Sinkinson 45th (3rd lady & 1st FV45)

Other amber vests in the prizes were; Andy Hauser 1st V55, Karen Sinkinson 1st FV50, Debbie Beck 2nd FV45 and Barbara Hinchliffe 1st FV60

Holmfirth men also took the 2nd team (Clark Hind 11th, Paul Crowther 12th & Andy Hauser 18th & 1st V55)

Thanks to Cartworth Moor Cricket Club for the use of their facilities and for putting on a fabulous chilli and fine selection of drinks!  Thanks also to the team of helpers on registration, results, timekeeping and marshalling.
