BritishTeams Positions - after Ireland:-
2nd Senior Men : 2nd MV40 : 1st MV50.

Coledale Horseshoe - results. Wild, cold, wet and windy up on the tops of Grisedale Pike and Grassmoor. A benefit of the mandatory kit regulations is that you have to take proper stuff, and well was it needed today.
With Carshare League points going - what other reason could there possibly be? - the true and good were out in depth (with a bit of imagination...). All safely around : some results were out, but a final version will yet be needed.
Excellent sandwiches, cakes, warm drinks : superb effort by the marshals up high.
Next League race is Charlesworth Challenge, Saturday 17th May. I can't recommend this highly enough. Just up Wharfedale, at Appletreewick. Route Notes. Camping is nearby, details in the notes. Up Simons Seat, a genuine AS race. A compulsory pint to be drunk before crossing the finish line - half for the Ladies.
Wardle Skyline -
Gisborough Moors - results.
Dark & White Mini-MM - from Bethesda....results.

London marathon - results. Anyone needing a mention?
Trunce 2 - results.
Herod Farm:-results.

Pendle. English Championship. Ladies Results. . Mens Results.
As expected from Clayton, very well organised. After fuss about safety issues, all that mattered was running, and a basic obligation to follow the race instructions. Which everyone did.
Some rain around, but not much, a bit of clag, but not much. Just a case of go flat out and all do us best.
Not a clue as to team results, all that will get sorted. Dicky has it as 4th MV50, after Borrowdale, Helm Hill, Bowland. Looks like we need to drop Pendle....
So a big thanks to all who travelled and represented. Next is Coniston, and anyone with high hopes needs to get to grips with that descent off Old Man beforehand...

Coniston and Kentmere - Championship Races. These are full, but Dave Sykes is looking for an entry for himself and Jenny. He mentions that both races accept substitutes, so please don't sit on an unused entry...

Chicken Run:- Hayfield...results
New Dungeon Ghyll - "Mike Robinson won for the boys (43.16)"
Mow Cop:- results.

Summer Series (1). Back Tor and a Little Beyond - results.

BritishTeam Categories:- I am assured that this year there will most definitely be a MV50 Team category, and also a LV40 Team category - Page 45 of the Calendar was rushed out a bit too soon...

Ireland - Slieve Donard Challenge. Results .
NIMRA - Team Results. They have it as 2nd MSeniors, and 2nd MV40. Greg has added it all up, and hopefully 1st MV50..
Race Report
- essential reading indeed....
Neil Northrop has had a flier, 3rd, ahead of the big guns. "Slieve Donard could not be seen for the mist at the start of the race. With many losing there way it was Allan Bogle who came home to take the victory in a time of 1:05:25 with the womens race being won by Jacqueline Lee of Eryri Harriers in a time of 1:24:14"
We await news from our runners, but we should have big team points, Neil, Rhys. Dave Taylor, Simon and Mike Rbinson well round.

Lad's Leap:-
Causey Pike:- results
Heptonstall:- results

Nicky's race - or to give it it's Sunday name, David Bell Memorial . A most recommended event, and it comes around again in August. More of a very hard cross-country than open fell, but two demanding climbs give plenty to get stuck into. No wind, no need for gloves, time to dig out the vest for a warm trip round.DPFR Results ., and Full results

Parkruns:- Carshare had a nostalgic plod around Clumber Park. A good pleasant course, two laps around the paths, and no wind, no mud...just enough of a little hill to slow down the finishing bit. Any other parkrunners?

Trunce 1- results
Tuesday - Bunny Run 1. But not for Carshare, good as they are...

DPFR Parkrun Bests 2014. These young whippersnappers got - rightly, it must be said? - put in their place today, as Mike Nolan shifted around Endcliffe Park in 16.52, which is now the best %, 84.68%. Just as important is a minute's improvement on the M55-59 time by Jim Paxman.
Any other results? or new venues? Please send email anything along.
Men's record % is by Mike Nolan, 84.68%
Men's record time is by Tom Saville, 15.59, 82.48%
Ladies record is by Vicky Chico - 20.07 - 75.23%

Llantysilio - is around Llangollen. results report. John Hunt (5th) keeps finding these Welsh places most of us have never heard of.
Narradale - results. Lloyd and Jackie , now in Manx colours, may well be needing their navigational skills as they seem to be so far ahead of anybody else. - 1st and 3rd...
Middlefell:- results.
Haworth Hobble:- results . First home was Borrowdale runner, Kim Collison....
Bwlch Maesgwm - looks like a warm-up for the Welsh championship race?

silver - Graham Moffatt
5th and V50 gold - Dicky Wilkinson : 1st reserve fell intercounties
31st Trevor Milner The three above won the team bronze as DPFR. Conditions were good if a bit breezy. Hats off to John Boyle and his team for organising another great race. "

ShAFF - The Sheffield Adventure Film Festival is 4th, 5th ,6th April. Have a look through the contents, and it looks some right appealing set of everything. " including a talk by Emma Clayton and a wealth of interesting films".

Pendle AS - Championship. Entry list

Any Parkrunners?

Stan Bradshaw Pendle Round - Carshare League 2 results. The barbecue weekend hadn't reached Pendle Hill, it never does. So cold and windy up top. A much better, varied course than the replaced Half Tour of Pendle, plenty of fast running for them that could run fast. David Lund seems to have maintained his recent impressive efforts with a 12th place, Keith was 3rd V60, and Willy's full report (largely about himself, it has to be admitted), can be found here. Carshare had a most leisurely plod round, much nearer the bottom of the field than the top...which is now very usual. Next up is the British Champs in NI, then the Coledale Horseshoe in April.

Grindleford Gallop - results.
Jarrett's Jaunt - results.
Ian Roberts:- (Marsden)- results.

Coniston Entry Form now available, English Championship. And, would you believe it, Joe's entry is also in the post...

DPFR Parkrun Bests 2014. There's no escaping my correspondent's eagle eyes, perusing the results. Tom Saville has now stuffed Mike Nolan's time and %, with some blistering 15.59. giving 82.48%. Also to mention 16.44, 82.17% from Carl Egdell, and 16.47 , 78.15% from Mike sprot. Any other results? or new venues?

High Peak Marathon:- results.
Black Combe - results.
Carding Mill Canter - results.
Trollers Trot - a scenic plod around the Grassington moors, Rylstone and Cracoe. Willy will no doubt be fretting about getting stuffed at Pendle, as Carshare romped home in 6th place. ( I now need to keep the total of entrants a secret...)

Fountains Abbey parkrun - started today, and is reported to be "a definite MUST DO parkrun – fabulous setting, great atmosphere and quick route."

Horsehill Tor -
Cloud Nine:- results.
Glaisdale Rigg - North York Moors. results. Dan Middlemas keeps flying the brown vest in them distant lands, this time being 3rd, and 1st V40. No doubt enjoying those bottles of wine...

The webmaster has moved on to some different technology for tracking his runs and rides, so has a Garmin 310XT watch with heart rate monitor for sale. Also has a bike mount. It's about a year old, and currently sells for about £140 at Amazon. Any sensible offer accepted.

Very useful for anyone who wants to know where they have been - the webmaster rarely knows where he is so it's always interesting afterwards to find out.
