Here are the results for Great Whernside -the final Carshare League. With it being Championship next year, a larger field than usual. A good time to be trying out new lines. The direct drop from the trig point seems faster for the mad descenders, and getting through the swamps without losing a shoe is a helpful hint....

Congratulations to everyone involved throughout the campaign. So very many things are extremely tight, often depending on those non-counting runners making a vital contribution. A lot to live up to next year, and the more people the better, getting to these races.
The rules for the British insist on listing only those completing the required full set of races, whereas for the English, the total points gained, even from 3 races, is the rule. On the FRA website all points recipients are listed. I've just put out those in the top 10 positions.

Team results to follow...

MU23:- Matt - 1st : Tom - 2nd.
Senior Men :- Rhys - 6th= .
M40:- Spyke - 6th.
M45:- Spyke - 3rd.

How good it is that we now have runners at events of different types in so many different parts of the country. Inevitably I will be missing out on finding plenty of these, so please let us know if you have been missed of fsomething, somewhere, or of anything that the rest of us should be knowing about.

UKA British relays - Luss, Loch Lomond. results. With Willy , on the ball as usual, reporting early that the Men have won, this is some completely formidable achievement. I make it that the MV40, MV50 and Ladies are all 4th, Men B team are 22nd, Ladies B Team - 11th.
Big thanks to everyone for travelling and representing. A lot to be repeating next year....

Sadly, Dave Parry, the organiser of so many North York Moors races, for so many years, including Championship events, passed away earlier today.

Langdale - final Championship race of the year. results.
Team Results. Senior Men - 1st : M40 - 2= with Helm Hill : M50 - 1st :Senior Ladies - 3rd L40 - 1st.
Dry, warm enough and clear, even warm. Marvellous to see so many runners turning out for a Championship race, long may it continue into next year's campaign.
I, unofficially, make it we are 1st Seniors on the day. Rhys has done some calculations, and makes it that we are one point clear in the Championships. Before we go overboard, best await the FRA Statistician's calculations.
Someone will have to sort out the V40 results, likely the V50's have done well, not a clue about the Ladies, apologies. Please help!
Plenty walking out for prizes, Judith quite repeatedly for every category going. Contrary to rumours, DT was first M65.

John Hunt helps us out:- "By my probably wrong calculations we were 2nd MV40 team at Langdale CVR 1st (154pts), DPFR 2nd (228 pts), Helm Hill 3rd (230 pts). Even if I'm wrong and HH are 2nd and we are 3rd, that's still makes us 2nd overall. But - it might well be a matter of Countback for 2nd place, with Helm Hill. Once again, best left to the Statistician....Awesome packing from the geriatrics that squeezed in to count as the 4. Another win for the MV50s means it's 4x12 pts for the champs for them, that looks frighteningly good.

UK /FRA Relays, Luss- Loch Lomond. Weekend after this.
"The club are still looking for runners for the GB fell relays (Sat 15th Oct, Luss, Loch Lomond)! We need another runner for the Open 'B' team and a women for the female 'B' team (the open team runner can be male or female). This is a really good opportunity to run for DP, be part of a team and experience a championship event. Anyone can be part of these teams (yes vets included) and we're not specifically looking for regular racers, these teams are more about participation and gaining experience. It would be a shame if we had to scrap these teams as currently we have people who are keen to be part of the event. Please contact club captains Rob and Helen for any more information and hopefully we can have at least 2 people offering their support. We look forward to hearing from you.

Pentland Skyline - results. As Willy has highlighted, an outstanding record from Kris Jones on their local hills.

Hodgson Brothers Relay:- Well! It don't come much better. Much more news from our team runners will help out. Results.
The Ladies seem to have got four good pairings, with runners who have these Lakeland hills in the legs. Nicky and Jenny held things together on the final leg, with fast closing Helm Hill (fastest leg) closing in , nearly.
The Vets also seem to have had three strong first legs, leaving John Hunt and Spyke the task of reining in Ambleside. They managed this at the top of St Sunday Crag, and opened the gap on that final descent.
The Ladies and Vets are well used to winning, but with Borrowdale winning for the previous 19 years, the Holy Grail of fell running was to win this Relay outright. Rob Little has managed to get, at last, what seems to be the best eight runners all turning out, knowing their legs. Borrowdale were ahead, just, at the first three change overs, and Rhys and Kris put in the fastest leg, most impressively, to win decisively.
Very many congratulations to all the runners, it can't be done with one weak runner, all you need to do next year is retain it....

Lakeland Classics Final Results are here. Borrowdale are marginally ahead of Ambleside, with us 3rd, but well off the pace.
First is Andrew Schofield. Completions from John Hunt - 10th, 1st V50 : Mike Robinson - 11th : David Lund - 12th : Judith - 19th and 1st W : Dave Sykes - 26th : Nicky - 27th and 2nd W40 : Jenny - 33rd and 3rd W40 : Keith - 37th and 1st M60. Congratulations to you all.

Next year's Championship races are now on the FRA website, though only provisional. A most welcome move, as plenty of planning can be started, especially next year's Carshare League, for which our organiser would gladly listen to any recommendations. Castle Carr is the alternative to Wasdale, but underestimate this at your peril, it is seriously hard and rough, with every opportunity to be getting lost

If anyone is wanting a most interesting read, look out for "Bob Cole, The Runner". It is written by Steve Herington, a regular at the World Masters events. Bob Cole, nobody has ever heard of him, lived in Hereford around and after the First World War, in the days of professional races, and the prestige events at the Powderhall Meetings

Two Breweries:- results. up in Scotland...
Royal Dungworth:-
Isle of Man Races:- were cancelled, due to bad weather.
Three Peaks Cyclo Cross - results. Anyone deserving of a mention?

Merrick - final British Championship race, and Carshare League counter. Results.
Rhys was back first, and this makes him British Champion. Very many congratulations and a superb achievement.
I didn't wait for any results and missed speaking to folk, so a proper sort out in due course. The race started with a bottleneck climb up a steep first hill, where the bracken had been scythed back enough. A long gradual climb up to Merrick, but then a good supply of bogs, tussocks, holes and whatever, with the added bonus of a disguised trip wire near the bottom of this grassy slope somewhere.
Never mind what it was billed as, " 8.47 miles / 13.64 km and 3600 ft / 1100m " won't be far off.

Lantern Pike:- results.
King John's Castle:- results.
Three Shires - final Lakeland Classics counter - results

Hodder Valley Show - Bowland. a different venue and course from when it was Championship at nearby Dunsop Bridge. Fields and tracks up to a soggy Beatrix Fell, around the trig point and hammer back down. A very pleasant show and race. results.

Completed Trig Points.


This plaque was presented to Rob Woodall, who has finally visited each and every of the 12, 394 trig points in the UK, which are still standing. Some achievement indeed!

Lakes Sky Ultra;- Mike was doing this, also with a few other brown vests, back in July.Looks like a long trip around... Results. Likely a better report will emerge on the DPFR Ultra bit of the website...

Castle Carr - Results. A new AL event above Hebden Bridge, the setting once for those Calder Valley FRA Relays. A big thanks to Calder Valley for staging a major new AL race. Connoisseurs of Wadsworth Trog will remember with delight the vistas of Sheepstones Trig and High Brown Knoll, and we now had similar highlights around the far side of the Castle Carr Reservoirs. Runners with an affection for deep boggy tussocks will most definitely feel at home here. Extremely gruelling, with trods and paths all over the hillsides, so easy to choose the wrong one - which Carshare managed with regularity.

Ultra Tour de Mont Blanc. - Nicky is round in 32hrs 32mins 11 secs, she'll have to let us know how this stands in her category. UK runners results.

This weekend - World Masters. This year it's in Susa, Italy. results. A most impressive LV40 set, with 1,2,3 for Lou Roberts, Julie Briscoe and Kirsty Hall. Anne-Marie Jones is 1st L60. Ben Grant - 4th : Mike Egner - 6th : Ben Mounsey - 8th : Karl Gray - 9th. Plenty of other names to be looking out for...
Next year it's on 2nd September in Slovakia 145km NE of Bratislava.

Details are emerging of the FRA Relays this year, at Luss, Loch Lomond.
Maps for Legs 1, 3 and 4.
We have entered :- two Senior Men teams, MV40, MV50, Senior Ladies, LV40. Maybe we won't finally be allowed all these teams, and the category of the teams can be altered. As ever, if you want to be considered, it's up to you to contact Captains, not their job to be prattling around asking. That would be Rob and Helen. For the MV50 it has traditionally been Keith, and will be this year. Nobody has come forwards about a V60 team, so that idea was scrapped.
For the Hodgson Brothers Relay (to give it it's Sunday name) , we have the usual Men, Ladies, and MVets.

Lakeland Classics :- results so far. The team is 3rd, after Borrowdale and Ambleside. Not that far back, and just Three Shires remaining, as Langdale isn't a counter this time round. Mike is 10th, Dave Lund - 11th, Keith - 1st V60.
The Ladies are high up, as might be expected. Judith - 1st : Nicky - 3rd and 2nd V40 : Jenny - 3rd V40.

Ochil's 2000 - results.
Dufton Show:-

England Home International Trial:- results. I'm not knowing much about this, sorry! But Eve Crownshaw is 4th, in 22.51 , and Jack is 14th, in 43.27.

Pendleton:- a most pleasant AS race, up and over that far end of Pendle Hill. just simple, unfussy fell running, with a good bit of everything along the route. Then sit in the stream and wash all the muck off. Results.

Crowden:- results.
Grasmere Guides:- results.

Pendle Three Peaks - English AM Championship.

Ladies Results. It looks to me like second Seniors Team, after Calder Valley, and first V40 team. Champions?
Men's results. Seniors just behind Keswick : V40 - too hard for me to add up : V50 - no need to add up?

A windy, wet trip around Pendle, the first part seemed to cover much of Pendle Cloughs, and the later bits were much the same as The Tour, with those same three strong climbs. Spyke finally admitted to being 1st MV50, John Hunt looks to be suitably recovered, Judith decided to match whatever the other half can do, Nicky walked out for something, Anna is first U23 ..... and then our driver was away for Burnsall....Results will be soon.
As for teams, the Ladies will be strongly in the mix, the men are close to Keswick, but not close enough. MV50 may well be Champions.
As it should be, Langdale is crunch. Then the final British race at Merrick, and the two Relays.

Merrick - the final, crunch British Championship race., 17th September. I've actually got around to looking at the route map, what a cracker!

Many, many congratulations to our two Bingley runners!

Sierre Zinal:- results. They take some interpreting, far beyond my understanding, so please let us know if you've been ignored. Pete Davies finished in 3.24.26, he might be 78th, and apologies for ignoring Tom Saville, 70th in 3.15.11.

Saturday:- Borrowdale. English Championship. Thanks to the many representing, I seem to have avoided several runners at the Sty Head Cafe . Right to congratulate the Ladies, 2nd Team and similar? For the Vets Team? Judith was first in her category, Nicky walked out for something. And suggest that all the men's teams are banking on Langdale - to be hoped that everybody and everybody has got their entry in....Rhys was 5th, Nell was 13th, Spyke wax 3rd V50 (in a rather competitive age group..) andKeith in the prizes. Just a bit chilly if ever you were waiting around, but clear and dry.

Carshare is upgrading, eventually , to Windows 10, so it's some reduced contribution just now, until I gets my computer back. No doubt our Webmaster can deal with any pressing urgencies.

British Championships after Sedbergh.

The team results are on the FRA website, under Events, and then Championships. Or Here , for the British. (The link might be working this time...). The individual results seem to have wandered.. Senior Men and MV 50 are Champions, the MV40 need to deliver in Scotland.

English individual results

British Championships after Sedbergh.

Congratulations to Tom Saville, MU23 Champion. When all the results emerge, they can have a better prominence. The final race, Merrick, in September, will find people getting their last counter in, or dropping a weak result, so far too soon to be banking on some excellent current positions being maintained.

Peris Horseshoe, and Half Peris. Not in the calendar, but Saturday 10th September. Will our man be defending his title

Borrowdale - isn't far off, and is English Championships. Substitutions are allowed on the day, so please let us all know if you are sitting on an unwanted entry..
Yvonne Beckwith , email , can't use her entry, if you can make use of it. Ashley is now getting around to taking this entry......,
After Bessyboot - a new fence has emerged along the next part, which may get folk confused. As to where the fence leads, not a clue...

Lingmell Dash:-

Holme Moss. Once again, Holmfirth reminded us how to be putting on an excellent race. The legacy, no doubt, of previous organiser Russell Bangham. Seven pounds, free drinks and top class food afterwards, and lots of prizes throughout all the categories. As for the race, it don't get any easier as each year passes. The boggy bits were deep, but mostly the peat was dry and the rocks not slippy. It is so much harder now that we return on the outrun, whereas once we dropped off Holme Moss road to the dams and legged it in. Does someone have an accurate distance measured? It seemed a long, long way.. Kris Groom has it as 28.6km, with 1106m climb.

Sedbergh Sports. English and British Championship. results

On a most quick calculation, for the Men, Pudsey are 1st, Keswick - 2nd and us - 3rd.
Ladies - Mercia- 1st , Helm Hill - 2nd , Calder Valley - 3rd and us 4th.

Rob Little, clearly much more statistically able, thinks:- "regards the British, by my calculation the senior men now can't be beaten (2 wins and a 3rd=32 points, best P&B or Keswick can get is 30 even if they win Merrick).
From DT - superb, congratulations to everyone involved. But now it's Borrowdale....job only half done...

Not a clue about the Vets, but that looks like 1st MV50 Team, and thus British Champions.
These results don't show the 5 year categories, so that will have to wait.
A very worthy Championship course. Rain always around, and although windy, not that cold. A lap around the field to thin the race down, into a long road bit out onto the fell. Two strong climbs, then a steep slithery, slidy descent into the finishing fields.

Wasdale. results . Not the best of conditions, with 40 retirements. A very strong team result from Ambleside.
John Hunt sends:- "It was wild even by Lakes standards, awesome, the forecast was bang on."

Blackfell:- results - is a completely excellent AM course from Kettlewell, well worthy of Championship status. Regrettably there were only 24 runners, such a shame for the organisers and marshals. Hopefully many of us can get along next year. Plenty of rough stuff over the back of Great Whernside, then a last part across to Hag Dyke, where anyone finding any correct line would have thrived. Tom Brunt, 2nd,, Ashley, 1st V50, and Greg removed the Team Prize, so a need to be retaining that next year.

Heptonstall Festival:- results.
Round Sheffield Run - results.

Saunders MM - from Pooley Bridge:- results. I'll surely have missed people off DPFR results, so please let us know when you've been ignored...

Lakeland Classics:- I've not yet found any official team results, but Ennerdale looks good, though I'm not knowing whether a Lady counts for the Team points...

Buttermere Horseshoe. This year a counter for the Lakeland Classics, and also the Carshare League. results. With taking the first three places, a clear win for Borrowdale, but 2nd will be useful Lakeland Classics points.

Wharfedale 2 or 3 Peaks:- results. Much like "Grin and Bear it", for the local Mountain Rescue, around Buckden Pike and Great Whernside. Only two peaks for Carshare, quite far enough. But hoping Willy never finds out, there was a most crafty recce of secret lines off Great Whernside. So when the final Carshare League race rolls around, might Carshare be hurtling past, whilst others are wading through the boggy swamps?

High Cup Nick - results have finally emerged..

Whaley Waltz:- results.
Kinder Trog:- results.
Arnison Dash:-
Bakewell Pudding Race:- results.

Calton Crawl:- results.
