Tour of Pendle:- one of the more lenient Pendle days, as the early rain faded away, even the mist cleared. Prizes were done by the time I managed to return, so not a clue as to what resulted. At least it wasn't one of us with a number on the back of a rucsac.....Results.

Harriers v Cyclists:- Results.

Litton Birks Loop – an absolute gem, up Wharfedale. And indeed a real gem. Start up the limestone slippery stuff, higher up into gritstone slippery stuff, around the top on a peaty squelching wander around somewhere, get down without crashing, and retire to the pub. Just some pity it’s a bit away from Peakland.. .Results.

Orton - Results from ages back.

Tour of Pendle:- with the usual carpark at Barley being closed, there is now a reduced entry 0f 300. Anyone who's not entered might need a bit of a hurry, and best sort out some sharing of transport.....

Shepherd’s Skyline:- Results.
Dunnerdale – and FRA Presentation Night. Results.
Elidir Fawr - Results. , from September....

Black Lane Ends – Results. a most welcome revival of an old established race, near Skipton, and unusual for fell stuff, a three lap hard course. The venue was an excellent hostelry, high on the moors somewhere, in the cold wet and mist - back to the essence of fell-running. Tried and tested sticky labels, entry on the day, and a totally biased prize-giving, with the pub being near the Lancashire/Yorkshire border... Sadly Carshare was lapped, but managed to keep ahead of Andy Holden's "Grim Reaper" .

Lockton Limping – N.Y.Moors. Results.

Results for British Relay Championships:- As an onlooker it seemed that everything came together most efficiently, and that means deserved compliments to anyone involved in the organisational side, and to the many runners who heeded advice, to help things flow so well. And even decent weather. Team results can well be decided and reported on by the main website.

Gormire Gamble:- Results.
Wirksworth Undulator:- Results.

Langdale- the final Lakeland Classic . Results. Not easy conditions, but it's often much worse. A bit of rain early on, enough mist to sort out them unsure of the way, the usual swamps across Martcrag Moor, and ample slippy rocks.

Go Big Moor:- Results. Another of those with no club listed, so please help us out if you've been ignored...
Pentland Skyline - Results.

Results for Peris Horseshoe. Yet another different start, a path through the lower quarries, joining the erstwhile zigzags, and then the usual seek of Elidir Fawr. On the early start we got a battering here, wind and rain, but that passed by, just slippy rocks and mist to Pen y Pass. For the full course Lliwedd was avoided. Another very good travelling set of runners from the club.

World Masters - details. down at the right bottom of Italy this year...I’ve not found any full results yet, but there looks to be wins for Adam Osborne, Colin Donnelly and Geoff Howard

Ilam National Trust – Final English Championship:- results. At long last a Championship course in the White Peak, and an excellent course at that. Everything very well organised. There were downpours on the trip down, but it stayed fair for the Women, and some rain later on wasn't much to worry about. Three sharp climbs, with some slippery stepping stones and limestone rocks. So that ends the 2019 Championship campaigns, outcomes will soon be revealed - though a first team result from the Women won't be doing any harm. In time next year's races will emerge.
Relays here we come. and The Nav Leg at Fairholmes...bring on the clag....and trust that Abbey Brook isn't in spate, as once it was....

British Mountain Running Championships – Lanberis :- results

Grisedale Horseshoe – English Championship.Men's Results. and Women's Results.
Excellent running conditions, pleasantly warm, no wind and clear. For those of us plodding at a more sedate pace, ample time to be looking around at the full range of Lakeland Fells. A bit sloshy on some of the drops, and as for that hill......
Once again , totally marvellous club support. Nathan was first MU23, Jude - 1st W50, and apart from that, not a clue and too weary to be sorting anything out...

Ben Nevis:- Results.
Yr Eifl – on the Llyn Peninsula, and a potential Classic?
Padfield Plum Fair:- Results.

Trunce 9:- Results.

Longshaw Sheepdog Trials:-
Gladstone 9 - North Wales Coast somewhere.... Results.

Blackshaw Head:- Well might the venue be remembered with cold, hanging around fondness, as the start of Calderdale Leg 4. It is still cold, wet and windswept, for the village fete. A good little event, passing somewhere along the Pennine and Calderdale Ways. Results.

Arnison Crag Horseshoe:-
Burnsall:- Results.
Brecon Beacons - Results.

Pendleton:- This was also a qualifying trial race for U17 and U19 Home Internationals, and might well have been a trial for plenty else. (But not for us old ancients,,,).
It's some classic, long-established AS course around the far end of Pendle. Hot, though ample boggy bits to wade through, and some rough descent in the middle. An interesting local testrun was to avoid the middle drop by going around high, but it didn't seem to have worked. £3.50 entry, and a bottle of beer as we finished.....can’t be that bad at all....Results.

Grasmere:- Results.
Kong Mini MM Round 3 :- at Loweswater:- Results.
Hebden Sports – near Grassington. Very rare for any results to emerge....
Cilcain Show:- Results. Do I see that 1st MV50 was L Taggart....
