This year we had two teams entered in this event a Vets team and a Mixed Team. Livers and Julian got the Vets off to a good start brining them home 1st overall and just over a minute clear of Pudsey Pacers in 2nd. For the mixed team a last minute change due to injury meant that Newbold took a beasting from Andrew Chew but finished a respectable 39th place.
A bit late with this one, but would you believe that it has taken this length of time for the results to appear. Anyway, Chris Smale had a great race to finish in 2nd place, only thirty seconds behind race winner, Gaz Pemberton from Wharfedale. Not bad for a V50.
For a change it was a lovely day for this race, with a clear blue sky greeting the runners at the start. There were fewer runners than normal this year due to the Championship Race taking place at Tebay, but the closer friendly atmosphere was a useful reminder of how fell races used to be.
Lucas Payne was over in the Isle of Wight and he turned out for the local Park Run. It was very hot and quite a convoluted hilly course, but he says that the organisation was very impressive with places for kit, car keys etc.

In the B race race Andrew Chew finished 2nd behind Martin Hall of Otley AC. Rachel Villiers ran another PB and is coming ever closer to running sub 19:00.
