IT'S YORKSHIRE DAY!
Borrowdale - Lakeland Classic and Carshare League counter.
- are there yet any spare entries going, as Andy Dickenson would like an entry. Please email,
or get in touch with myself...
( Jim Twohig has taken up Anton's most kind offer...)
So here we go! First is the Ian Hodgson, Sunday October 5th. Senior Men, Senior Ladies, V40 men, from Patterdale. For many, even most, this is the more important of the Relays, with Borrowdale Men looking at others from their long unbeaten run at this event.
Two weeks later is the FRA Relays, in the Howgills. Two Ladies Teams, and for the Men, two Senior teams, V40 , V50, and a strong open "C" team.
Keith will look after the selection for MV50. As shown on the Homepage, ASAP would hopeful runners please contact Rob Little for all other teams, and don't miss out on running for the "C" team, or even? organise it?
It really is up to runners to come forwards, and not sit waiting for a phone call.
And for runners who, like poor Carshare, won't make a "Z" team, all support on the days would be most encouraging...
As for selection of teams? The Ian Hodgson needs good pairings, a track record of being able to deal with Lakeland height, and a knowledge of the route. For the FRA, not a doubt that the Howgills will be harder than most Peak races. Potential isn't much help in picking the teams, whereas recent results really do help. The last two Championship races, Hodder Valley and Maesgwm, might well clear things up somewhat. Hodder Valley (Bowland) is E.O.D : the Welsh race needs an entry beforehand.
Le Tour de Yorkshire.
There's always someone, isn't there? Whilst most of us were content to find a way to Blubberhouses, Buttertubs, Holme Moss, etc, someone has to go that bit further, this time to Paris.
“You wouldn’t have the Edale Skyline in Versailles, so you can’t do this in Yorkshire.”- says our Paris Correspondent, typically moaning that it cost "roughly £22.00 for 3 ice creams and 2 sorbets".
But then John Hunt won't be getting any hill reps stuck in Paris...
A good set of distant races...
