James Blakeley Fell Race - Results

20th June 2015 (5km, 180m)

Conditions on race day this year were mild and breezy with the odd shower. Just as the 28 runners set off another refreshing shower blew over. First out of the trials field were some of the younger runners with the more experienced leaving them to break down the nettles as they made their way over the wall. First back into the field was Mike Fanning of Borrowdale with a comfortable lead over regular competitor Rob Jackson of Horwich. Close behind in third place was James Nobles whose parents are both involved in the organisation of the sheep dog trials. First lady home was Helen Berry of the host club with a very good run, well in front of second places Judy Howells of Wharfedale.

Holmfirth are rarely challenged for the team prize and Dan Stewart, Julian Rank and Clark Hind helped themselves to the beer.

Thanks to all those who helped and the trials committee for donating the prizes for this race.
