Ian Hodgson Relay:- from Patterdale. Race day Details, etc. All this is compulsory stuff to be read, about parking, etc, etc. No way should  the arrangements be messed around with.
 Clockwise, so Leg 1 goes via Angle Tarn. Best wishes to our teams, Men, Ladies and MV40. I'm wondering wot conditions we need, is clag to be dreaded?
Hopefully there can be non-team runners lurking around, as it is such a good event, and you gets a good trip up some hills.  (Carshare will be there, but has this mystery injury, which only appears should anyone remotely ask me to run...)

Saturday:-
Saddleworth Edges - a classic trip round...
Longmynd Hike:-

Sunday - 
Curbar Commotion:- and it looks to be a right good course?
Saltergate - Levisham. N.Y.Moors.

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.

Some new recruits to the league, and a particularly strong showing from the women and over 65s respectively (welcome Brother Lockwood), with some canny entries on the short and medium courses securing particularly high scores ... not least Ms Bryan-Jones whose orienteering class clearly shone through once again.  Indeed, there must be something in the air - independence perhaps? - with (methinks) Father Bryan-Jones winning outright on the Short Course, and our other double-barreled would-be Scotsman (Rhys F-R) securing second on the Classic Course this year. 

In the absence of a determination from the Cat (who may or may not have been a DNF on the Classic Course) as to the Team Prize winners, this particular award must perforce be held in abeyance.  More disappointing still, with the enforced absence of Barber Surgeon Caddick through injury, we will for the second year running not have a woman completing the requisite five qualifying races for the league - leaving your absentee correspondent with a difficult decision to make as to this year's first honorary woman.

We all have our crosses to bear, I guess, chief amongst which for your correspondent this weekend being the call away to higher duties, delivering precious cargo to Glasgow School of Art, such that I could not on this occasion join in the fun.

Last up then, as previously trailed, is The Screes, Nether Wasdale, featuring the first Carshare League Awayday Weekend.  All welcome - kids included - and the opportunity to give our (mostly) youngers and betters a good cheer at the FRA Relays on the Sunday morning.  Do let me know by email if you plan to come along.

2015 Championship Races:- We know of Duddon, AL, and in a break from tradition, "Manx Fell Runners are pleased and proud to announce that they will be holding a round of the English Championships on the Isle of Man in 2015. This will be a long counter and held on June 13th over a modified Bradda race route."
Other rumours will await a definite confirmation...

World Masters Mountain Race - is in the Stubai Alps, Austria. 
I've not found the results yet, but I'm told Craig Roberts was 2nd, and Ann Marie Jones - 1st. Few other medals, i suspect.
Next year it is in Wales, at Betws-y-Coed, Five-year categories, from V35.

Ben Nevis:- results  . With 2nd Lady for Judith.
Grisedale Horseshoe - any results, even from last year, most welcome...Sue Robinson has found this on Twitter, thanks!, "Won by Rhys FR then Lloyd T and Mark Roberts. Ladies: Jackie Lee then Lyn Thompson."
  Getting rather secretive are we, Rhys?

OMM Lite - Penrith -

Helvellyn Triathlon:-
Exterminator - results.
Loweswater Show -
Shelf Moor - results.
Great North Run......results. I see that Keith didn't stay with Mo Farah, but well round in 01:36:54. Anyone else need a mention?Trunce 9 - results.
Roseberry Topping -results

Coming Soon:- "The Lake District Mountain Trial, on Sunday 15th September has been announced as being from Patterdale. This is the penultimate counter in the Carshare League…and the decision is that " unless persuaded otherwise, any course counts. % of winner's time in each case."
All will be relieved to know that Carshare's navigational skills will not be unleashed upon those hills..
