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.
Wolf’s Pit:- results.
Rogaine 3 – Blackden:-
High Peak Marathon:- Results.. Plenty to be sifting through here....
Lad’s Leap:- Results.
Stan Bradshaw Pendle Round:- Results. A very pleasant wander around Pendle paths and tracks.
Loopy Latrigg:- Results.
High Cup Nick:- Results.
Ilkley Moor:- Very dry up there today, and even warm. A pity about the inevitable bottleneck start, whether a bit of re-thinking might help, but once we get going, it’s a good, hard AS course. Results.
Clwydian Sheeptracks:- Results.
With Championship race Stretton Hills drawing near, some good races are around the weekend after this (23rd/24th), High Cup Nick, Hoppits Hill, and Ilkley Moor..….just have a check of pre-entry needs....
Everything seems to have been most quiet....
New Chew – is cancelled.
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....
Rogaine 2 – Cutthroat Bridge:-
Doctor’s Gate:- Results.
Stybarrow Dodd:- Results.
Wadsworth Trog:- Results.
Runners and Riders – a new Wharfedale race, for Ted Mason’s 40th birthday. Bikes and runners set off together. Hopefully a return for Carshare….but not yet driving....And it was a gem of a race. 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.
Rombalds Stride – the traditional first long event up here, around Ilkley Moor….
Mickleden Straddle:- Results.
Kong Mini MM – from Capel Curig - Results.
The Spine. Lots to be following here, Jasmin has done well, , and Steven Jones has safely finished. Enormous respect to everyone out there.
Hoofstones – Carshare League. News eagerly awaited, and is now on DPFR results. Results.
The Spine sets off on Sunday, up to Kirk Yetholme, and the Spine Challenger, to Hawes, on the Saturday. Us lesser mortals can be following it all with stuff on the website, and our DPFR participants
So into a New Year, with very best wishes from Carshare, for whatever our hopes should be.
Jubilee Plunge - report and results. Looks to be a mad downhill hurtle in the Clwydian Hills.
Grindleford Café Run:-
Boxing Day Bogtrot:-
Totley Two Turtle Doves - Results.
Wansfell:- a simple race, start in Ambleside, round the top and get back down. Short, sharp and hard effort indeed. Although only AS, full kit was required, understandably, and so a reminder that we takes the lot to each and every race. Results.
Guisborough Woods:- Results.
Bradfield Christmas Score:-
Stile End – Kong Winter Series:- Results.
Tour de Helvellyn:-
The Stoop - relatively benign conditions today above Haworth, not too cold and little wind. Plenty of sinking bogs around, though nowhere near as wet as sometimes it is...Results.
Kirkby Moor:- results.
David Staff Memorial -results...with a bit of fiddling around...
Kong Mini MM – Round 4:- from Hathersage. Provisional Results.
Lee Mill Relay:- can't just be seeing any official teams there, Results, but some familiar club names lining up...
Please would anyone use the new e-mail address, which is email , (if it actually gets to be working...)
Club Championships, and Club Dinner.
Harriers v Cyclists.- results.
Two Riggs – Kong Winter Series 1. Results. and a most welcome return from Joe, after injury.
Penmaenmawr - results.
Tour of Pendle. Relatively benign conditions on Pendle, apparently a bit colder up the tops. Clear, quite dry underfoot. A nasty foot injury when someone trod on some kind of metal spike high up on the hillside. Some regular familiar faces passing through the CP, all but some few with the number pinned helpfully...Results.
Arnside Knott:- results.
Peak Raid Round 3 – from Glossop. Results.
Litton Birks Loop – an appealing new race from Litton, the Litton up in Wharfedale. And it was some excellent new race, starting up a relentless slog, into a flat moorland boggy loop around the trig and a moorland tarn, and back down again. A long way to come from the Peak, but surely the organiser's B&B would suit perfectly...Results.
Wrekin Wrecker:- results.
FRA Presentation Night – in Ilkley, hosted by Pudsey. Well, everything was collected, so a little bit of asking around should make sure that everyone gets their medals.....
A host venue needed for next year, it seems.
Ilkley Afternoon Race – a suitable, sharp course here, effectively two laps of the long-established Badger Stone Relays. These Relays are named after the tragic death of Will Ramsbottom, a while back, who was a talented Pudsey runner.
Leg it Round Lathkil - results.
Lee Mill Relay - 25th November. This is a good event, from Rossendale. 4 individual legs, all the same, not high powered like the traditional autumn relays, and over a strong fell course . It might? be well worth putting out a strong set of Seniors Teams, but after that there may be a case for anyone else who wants to run getting themselves sorted into teams of matching abilities...Might someone be taking on a role of sorting out?
Grisedale Horseshoe - results.
Friday - Really Wild Boar Night Race.
OMM - Around the Black Mountains. Results. And some good ones in there...
Snowdonia Marathon - regular visitor is John Hunt, 34th and 2nd M50. Anyone else there? Results.
Grin and Bear It:- results are lurking somewhere within Facebook...
Bronte Way – a scenic linear route to Keighley. Results.
Gormire Gamble – N.Y.Moors from Sutton Bank. A pleasant enough wander around the muddy woods and pond below Sutton Bank, with a strong climb at the end from the bottom to the top....
Results - and a good first place for Chris Vanderhoven.
British Relay Championships – hosted by Ambleside, all from Grasmere. Results. On a quick look, Senior Women - 7th : WV40 - 1st : Senior Men - 5th : Senior Men "B" - need help to count it out... : MV40 - 5th : MV50 - 1st :
Leg 3 Nav Leg Map - not for the faint-hearted...
A big , most deserved thanks to Ambleside for excellent effort and organisation , and to team organisers, getting it all sorted out, and to everyone prepared to commit to running.
Rather nasty conditions at times, drizzle throughout, with very slippy rocks and grass, and a good dose of clag, which saw the demise of certain hopeful clubs.
And so to, as ever, next year, and get the date in the diary with red letters...
There is, of course, the Lee Mill Relay, in Rossendale, November 25th, which is more open to anyone getting a team together.
Wirksworth Undulator:- results.
Those completing the Lakeland Classics Series this year are:-
Rhys – 1st : Pete Davies – 2nd : John Hunt – 11th (2nd V50) : Dave Lund – 14th : Dave Sykes – 24th : Nicky – 29th (5th W and 1st W40, W50).
Team – 2nd – a distinctly closeable gap of 0.6 points on Borrowdale.
All-time list of completions.
