Duddon – the first of the Lakeland Classics, and the well-hard-enough Short Duddon. And fun was had by all.....Before the start all looked dry and clear, but soon the misty damp set in, and runners had the joys of visiting new hillsides, mine was a trip to The Pikes....Rumours of the wrong valley farmers coming to help out? Safely round are Rhys - 1st (by a quarter of an hour..) and Majka - 2nd Woman.

Coiners:-,Results. and Coiners Juniors - Results. :- Most welcome news from Lewis:-"There was a good turnout today from Dark Peak Juniors, at the third Junior Championship race of the series. Good solid representation across the age groups and some great results in a tough field. It was perfect racing weather, cool and dry. Fortunately the longer courses found enough bog to keep everyone happy! Being dry underfoot helped with the vicious, fast down hill finish. Well done to all the travellers!
Just for good measure, Helen being the only representative in the hoops of gold and purple took the women’s race over all.

Following a good day of Junior championship racing at Coiners in Mytholmroyd, the up to date championship standings are on the Championship racing tab of the Junior blog pages (https://dpfr.org.uk/pages/view/juniors). The club is being well represented across the age categories and good team results are seeing us edge up through the team standings.

Saturday:-
Eskdale Elevation:- Dave Sykes helps out with:-"On a beautiful April day six dark peakers undertook a quintessential lakes race. With so much route choice, loads of climbing and plenty of route choice this is my new favourite race - 18km and 1400m of up and down. For me the downside was a lot of running but there were 2 very steep climbs and a never ending descent off Sca Fell to compensate. Max Wainwright won in a new course record and DPFR narrowly missed out on the team prize being pipped by Ambleside ( if only I’d got a better line to Eel tarn). Heartily recommended (unless your Mike Nolan - sooooo rough!)"

... saw a packed house at Tha Sportsman.... as well as some snow en route. Dave Bollington bore the weighty responsibility, of being the only identifiable Wart present, admirably. A number of routes at varying speeds were run. Some of those taking in the traditional way points of north Lees pond and Little John's grave.

Results. from Stretton Hills

Moel Wnion – Carshare League Counter:- Jim reckons it was cancelled, and he should know....

Stretton Hills – The first English Championship event this year…..Rhys says it was close with Keswick, one point either way......hopefully ours. A tremendous turnout, thanks to all for representing. Max was 1st MU23, and Nicky - 2nd W50. Mercia had done a very good effort with this, a hard course, plenty of route choice, and very well organised. Earlier in the morning there had been every combination of rain, hail and snow, but it cleared up, and finding the lines was alright, if maybe not any best lines. So let’s be getting those entries in....
Greg calculates the Senior Men - 1st, by that one point : M40 - 4th : M50 - 4th : Women - 4th : The rest to be awaited, and the statistician will be deciding things.
With it looking to be close, just essential to be getting best teams out, if possible.

Bilsdale – a new, AL race, up in the N Y Moors.

Stretton Hills - Championship. No sign of entries just yet, but here is a route description, and a map. All the more reason to be partaking of the Carshare League this weekend....

"An Organisers plea to all of you" - this link , within the report from Mercia's Cannock Chase Trig Points Race, is worth a read, and the crunch importance of filling in the registration entry form accurately, and of making your number, pinned on where required, easily readable to any marshals.

Winter Half Tour of Bradwell:- Results. A most welcome report from Greg...”Storm force winds on the tops and heavy rain were promised but didn’t really materialise for the race but the short course was never really a consideration with the high points on the course being visited only briefly. A slight change to the finish of the route meant that this ‘not to be under-estimated 16 miler’ was in fact just short of 18 miles with an extra big climb just before the finish. The route change went down well, certainly with the Dark Peak contingent, first 3 men (well done Adam, Craig and Tom), Helen clocking in for a prize along with Mike Nolan (first V50) and Jane Crowson (first LV50). The consensus after the event was the last climb was a worthy addition to an already fine route and that the rolls and soups were mighty good. Same second Saturday in Feb next year, thanks.

Long Mynd Valleys:- the next Carshare league counter….Results. a most impressive turnout here, Carshare League points being a decisive factor, no doubt. Tom just missing out by six seconds, closely followed by a most strong pack, and Dave Allen enters the ancient's category with success....

Bikes and runners set off up the hillside, rolled around the top lands in the lying snow, to find a ravine, and then back down the hillside to finish. Results.
