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.
