Senior Fell Championship update

Category: Uncategorised Published Date Hits: 1063

The mist and murk at Black Combe the other Saturday caught out a few of the elite runners hoping to score some early points in this year’s English Championship. You’ll have to judge for yourselves whether there were any similar wanderings off-piste amongst the Holmfirth contingent – certainly, no-one has admitted anything!

Anyway, we have now completed the first 3 races in this year’s Championship & I know it’s only early days and the tables don’t mean much at this stage, but we’ll let Chris enjoy his time at the top! Similarly, Helen has already staked a claim for retaining her crown, but I know there are some of you out there keen to mount a challenge & plan your weekends around the remaining 12 races!

Results to date

The next race is at Wardle Skyline on Saturday 9th April – not too far to travel & shouldn’t be too technical, so get yourself across to Rochdale for a run out. This is followed by the somewhat different prospect that is the 3 Peaks on Saturday 30th April. I’ll be there in a supporting capacity this time, as injury has curtailed any meaningful training!

See you on a hill sometime (hopefully soon).
