 Carshare is now away Thursday while Saturday, over by Liverpool. Please use Comments, or contact our Webmaster for anything which needs to go out.

All Those Wainwrights Lecture:-  Details.  Tuesday 14th November 7.30pm - An Evening with Steve Birkinshaw. Only just over to Stockport, £4.00 or £6.00, and a completely outstanding achievement.

OMM - is in The Cheviots.
- Mark Tuckett sends:- "my OMM partner for the elite course is looking 50:50 or less - if anyone fancies an 'enjoyable' couple of days in the Cheviots, then let me know: 07963 073443. or email. "
- and Rob Small asks:- "I am looking for a partner for the Long Score in next weekend's OMM in the Cheviots. email"

Saturday:-
Buttermere Shepherd's Meet:-
Great Whernside:- some classic AS course, from Kettlewell.

Sunday - Bronte Way. Use their bus from Haworth to Wycoller, and run back again. A good trip out.

Lakeland Classics 2014:- As Nicky kindly points out, the results on the link haven't accurately been updated, so the final DPFR list will come out whenever someone notices the final accurate results.

Sunday After:- it could be a useful time to meet up with our resident runners up there for Guisborough Three Tops. Expected to be Championship next year, so a good opportunity to get used to the area. It was Carshare League last year. Plenty of lay-bys up the A1 for sharing. And maybe Mr Lund will find the correct route round this time?

FRA Relays - around Middleton Fell, near Sedbergh. Results
Senior Men - 1st :
Men (B) team - 17th, and 1st (B) Team :
MV40 - 3rd (20th overall) :
MV50 - 1st (30th overall) :
Men (C) Team - 65th and likely first (C) team :
Ladies (A) Team - 8th , 92nd overall :
Ladies (B) Team - 14th , 114th overall, likely first Ladies (B) Team.

Many thanks to the race organisers for all their considerable efforts and achievements in putting on the event, the long suffering marshals.
And to all our runners and supporters, most especially to the Team Captains for all the hassle of organising teams.
Rather surprisingly the forecast rain held off until many of the runners were down of the hill, but still enormously wild and windy anywhere up high. The two short legs, 1 and 4, were the expected very hard AS courses. A very long Leg 2, maybe the decisive leg, and apparently not too much of a demanding navigational leg 3, shorter in time than the long Leg 2.
More detailed reports should rightly come from Team runners, and no doubt our illustrious webmaster will put them out with due prominence.
 Over to Clayton next year, the delights of Barley and Pendle Hill. Whether we will be allowed 7 teams might well be another matter?

Rocky Mountain Half Marathon - for those who didn't study geography, the Rocky Mountains are somewhere in Canada. 
"For 19 years, CAUSE Canada’s Rocky Mountain Half Marathon has raised funds for impoverished populations in Sierra Leone and Guatemala, focusing on public health and poverty reduction.But this year, with the African country in the grips of a deadly Ebola virus outbreak, the run will fund a public education campaign aimed to reach 500,000 Sierra Leone citizens in an attempt to halt the spread of the disease. More than 1,800 participants took part in the run on Sunday (Sept. 7), raising about $90,000 for Ebola aid."
"As for the run, Robert Little of Great Britain was the winner of the half marathon, finishing the route in 1:14:14."

The Screes. - Carshare League - final event. Steve Matthews has kindly sent the results, going out on DPFR Results. And no doubt our esteemed Carshare League Organiser will be declaring the League Results and Trophy winners. Likely that all suggestions for next year's events would be most welcome. Really we await dates and full details of Championship races - any confirmed help would be most welcome.
The final League Positions have been calculated, the glistening Trophies ready to be presented. 7 people have completed the required 5 races, David Lund (1st) and Keith managed 8 races. Dave Sykes is 2nd and Matt Hulley 3rd.

Wirksworth Undulator:- results.
Round Rotherham:-

FRA Relay Information:-
"We have had feedback from the Ian Hodgson Relay to say that some teams had a considerable gap between their pairs of runners. The rule stating that pairs of runners on legs 2 and 3 must stay together and be in comforable communication with each other will be strictly enforced by marshals on all manned checkpoints - both must reach controls together."
"Despite a polite notice about only accessing Barbon and Middleton Fell via access points and established footpaths there have been several incidents of runners off path trespassing and with dogs not on leads. This has upset local tenant farmers and they have threatened cancelling the event. In light of these issues we have agreed with the Roger and Pauline Bainbridge that anyone recceing the courses may park in the event parking field at grid ref 632858 and access the courses from there."

Langdale - results.  reports have it as a tad slippy, but that hasn't prevented a double first for Rhys and Judith, and that becomes a treble if you add on the Ladies Team, Nicky being second home.

Withins Skyline:- results. Mr Woodhead is losing his reputation as that dour Yorkshireman. For once we all seemed to line up in some correct place, and no traditional shouts of "Get Back!". Instead of his usual cold, misty, wuthering clag, the sun was shining, almost hot, and easy to sit around the finish afterwards. David Lund must have anticipated the conditions, joining in with the Penistone Hill sunshine.

Wasdale Show - BOFRA - results.
Wingerworth Wobble - results
T'Owd Man - results. .

All gearing up for next weekend, the culmination of this year's campaign. That naturally refers to The Screes, the final event of Carshare League 2014. Others may be interested in the FRA Relays, on Middleton Fell, just below Sedbergh.

Ian Hodgson Relay:- results . Splits.
Senior Men - 3rd : Borrowdale 1st, Calder Valley - 2nd.
MV40 - 1st  - and well clear.
Ladies - 2nd, behind Ambleside.
Plenty of damp around , with plenty of clag, which would have enabled strong competition for the I H Pertex award, from notable teams, had it been available. Thankfully that didn't apply to our teams, safely round. Nicky and Pippa were fastest leg runners on Leg 4.
Mention was made by the organisers of runners not staying in pairs, a ten minute difference in one instance. It is a pairs race...
And no need at all for the MVets to infiltrate the Senior Men's Team...

The Cuillins on a bike..... Danny MacAskill is back.......
Curbar Commotion:- results.

English Schools Fell Championships -  around Mytholmroyd. results.

Three Peaks Bike Race:-  results. Rob Jebb finished first, and a veritable list of fell runners not that long after...Far too complicated for Carshare to sift through, but anyone want a mention?

Sandstone Trail - results. Not that many behind John Hunt, in fact nobody.....
Royal Dungworth:-
RAB Mountain Marathon -  results.
Eskdale Show:-
T'Owd Man Race:- 

Crowden Horseshoe - results.
Shipman Knotts - results. Another one from ages since...
Grisedale Horseshoe 2014 - results.
Buttermere Triathlon - seems totally bonkers to me, swimming across the lake, the bike over Honister and Whinlatter, and then do some running. Fitting that totally bonkers category is Ben Robson, 129th, 00:29:11 for the swim, 01:53:53 on the bike and 01:26:45 running, a finish in 03:49:49.
 Of course, we put out results of anything and anywhere, maybe even the Bog Snorkelling Championships - or (as Willy suggests..) the triathlons that Mr Robson may be doing.

Hodder Valley - final English Championship. Men's Results Ladies Results (Our most reputable Carshare League organiser is temporarily putting the results on the website..)
 An excellent course, genuine AS, a good show venue, and well organised.
The Senior Men not at full strength, but should have won the English Championships already, and many deserved congratulations to all concerned throughout the year.
A very strong MV40 group, but so had Borrowdale, and they may well have dumped us to second place. On a rough count, we may have been 2nd, so equal on 45 points. Countback could be some problem.....
As for the MV50 group, it effectively seemed like a selection race for the FRA Relays, certainly plenty for Keith to scrutinise when facing up to the huge problem of picking a team. Hopefully one/some of any unlucky ones may be selected for the "C" Team?
In due course the final Championship results will be out, and I'll try and list medal recipients...
Ladies - only Judith, and of course she was very high up, as ever. The LV40 Team are Champions.

Dan Middlemas is expecting to be flagging the route - in a manner known only to DPFR runners, we hope, - for Guisborough Three Tops, next year English Championship Medium.

Peris Horseshoe - and Half Peris Horseshoe:-
Nine Edges Race:- results. With no clubs listed, you may well have been left out of the DPFR results, so please ask our webmaster to fiddle any corrections. 

Mountain Trial -  Carshare League Race.
Classic results. 
Nicky is 2nd Lady, after Jasmin Paris. Rhys is 2nd M. after Hector Haines, but a gap of 36 mins. Long day out, seems to have been some strong course?
men are confirmed as 1st Team.
John Hunt doubled up from Hodder Valley:- "Fantastic course if you went over the tops (any combination of Helvellyn, the Dodds, and anything else nearby...) as I did. I couldn't resist them".
Medium Results. - 1st Lady for Kirsty  - and Short Results - can be fiddled from this link

Padfield Plum Fair:-  results
Burnsall -  BOFRA:-results

Monday - Summer Series 12 :- from Strines.
Wormstones - results, from ages since.
