Only two Barlickers were at this race, which was easily won by the in form Tom Adams of Ilkley. Tom led the runners up the hill from the pub towards the top of the ridge and never looked like losing the lead. On the return, he cruised down the hill to take an easy victory, ahead of Chris Farrel of Horwich and Tim Ellis of Calder Valley.
Sam Wadsworth was 17th as they made their way up the hill and after the descent from the monument, he lost quite a few places as they climbed back up to the ridge again. However, once on the top and on the descent, he started pulling a few places back to finish 19th.
Rachel Lowther looked to be going well on the ascent, but looked to be exhausted as she made the last bit of descent towards the finish line. She was plagued in the race by her shoe laces coming undone, which in itself cost her a few places.
19 Sam Wadsworth 49:01
210 Rachel Lowther 71:24 (35th women out of 64 starters)
The race was very well organised by Todmorden Harriers who lived up to their reputation for getting the results out in double quick time.
