Saturday:-
Yr Aran – British Championship AM. Results. Interpretations and team results when the statistician sorts them out. Next should be the English, at Guisborough, but that's a long way off just now.

Haworth Hobble:- Results.
Lad’s Leap:- Results.
Bilsdale:- Results.
Brough Law:- Results.

I Black Combe:-the first of the Lakes Grand Prix series. Results. Rhys back into top form, then?

Stan Bradshaw Pendle Round:- Results. Even decent weather for Pendle, clear, a good bit windy at times, and planty of wet sloshy stuff.

Saddleworth Ten Res’s:- Results.

Horsehill Tor:- "Fine spring day for this classic in the making. A much more respectable turnout this year in the sunshine, but unfortunately no ladies - perhaps occupied with other International Women’s Day duties. All found their way round with the usual minor variations right from the off. Apart from Jim, who apparently struggled with a map too small for his needs. Neil luckily remembered Mam Tor is indeed the last checkpoint just in time, and Gabor’s pioneering individual line down the final descent provided good value for the spectators. No records in the windy and very heavy underfoot conditions, but pretty close run to the finish for the only four to wait for the official 10am start."

Bluebell 1:- Results.
Peak Raid 3 – Round 1 :- Abney and Bretton. Results.

Saturday:-
Loopy Latrigg:- Results.

Sunday:-
Ilkley Moor:-50@50 event. Apologies to those I never spoke to, it all was busy at the start, and you'd likely be on the way home when I rolled in. Extremely boggy, a nasty head wind blowing across the tops, a need to be keeping that 'at on up there... Results.

Cloud Nine:- Results.
Hope Winter:- Results.
Long Mynd Valleys ...now re-arranged. Results. No clubs seem to be listed, so please help us out if you're missed off...
Hoppits Hill:- Results.
James’ Thorn:- Results.

Saturday:-
High Cup Nick :- 50@50 Series. -Results.

Sunday:-
Heartbeat Hobble:-Results
Midgley Moor:- Results. We had it all, rain, wind, hail, then sunshine. Those tracks around Sheepstones Trig Point and Crow Hill, with every opportunity to be wandering, which many of us did...

Clwydian Sheeptracks:- "Yesterday - (for John Hunt) - started out pretty wild but soon cleared up and turned out to be glorious run in the sun albeit still a bit breezy. I never took this race seriously from the start which was a good thing as for this very special race, the course is issued on a map months in advance and folk recceit to death such that they don’t need to read or follow a map on race day. Which if you turn up to “on sight it” you’re going to be going backwards at numerous points.Great run out though as a long training run building to race pace." Results ..

Sedbergh – Kendal Winter League - another cancellation

Yukon Ultra - Results, etc. Steven Jones looks to be well finished, hope he's keeping warm out there, whatever it might be like...To me it looks desperate out there, very cold and competitors being hauled off with touches of frostbite. Also, besides this 100mile event there is a 300mile course still ongoing.
A bit of a report.

Make no mistake, this must be one of DPFR's really major achievements, close after finishing The Spine, and clipped onto that Dragon's Back last year.

Margery Hill:-
Pendle Way:- Results. Can't just be seeing any of us there?
Stybarrow Dodd:- Results.
Wadsworth Trog:- Results.
Rombalds Stride:- seems to have been a lot windy over Ilkley Moor tops....I’ve got a copy of the results should anyone need them.....

Sunday:-
Kong Mini MM Round 1 - over the Carnedds…Results.
Mickleden Straddle:- Results.
Runners and Riders:- so we all lines up, runners and bikes, from Appletreewick in Wharfedale, and chase each other around the organiser’s farmland...A lot windy, with a bit of wet, all good preparation for probably the very best in post-race cakes and refreshments. Results.

Yukon Arctic Ultra - starts January 30th. I knows nothing about this, "Quite simply the world's coldest and toughest ultra. 430 miles of snow, ice, temperatures as low as -40°C and relentless wilderness, the MYUA is an incredible undertaking."
There appear to be softer touches at 100mile and 300 mile.
Fresh from that triviality up the Pennine Way, Steven Jones might be needing an extra jersey up there, it seems. Might we well be watching those dots once more?

Saturday:-
Hoofstones – by Todmorden. Perfect conditions here - wet sloshy bogs, clag, and featureless moorland. All is simple until the trig point, and despite numerous pre-race and post-race discussions, there is now't much better than getting the compass out, head off into somewhere and hope to land out at the CP on the other side. Pete Davies will have upset the locals by winning on their home patch...Results.

Tigger Tor:- next in the 50@50 Series. Results.

Sunday:-
Peak Raid – Event 4:- Calver. Results.

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.

Sadly, it is reported that Barry Blyth passed away last night, in hospital. I’m one of so many who will miss him enormously. Please could anyone let me know of any funeral arrangements…..

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.
Peak Raid 3 – Round 1 – Alstonefield. 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

Fell n’ Back:-
Orton:-
Bradfield 6 by 6 :-
Firth – a recommended event from Buckden…was cancelled, due to a lack of pre-entries.
