Pendle Three Peaks - English AM Championship.

Ladies Results. It looks to me like second Seniors Team, after Calder Valley, and first V40 team. Champions?
Men's results. Seniors just behind Keswick : V40 - too hard for me to add up : V50 - no need to add up?

A windy, wet trip around Pendle, the first part seemed to cover much of Pendle Cloughs, and the later bits were much the same as The Tour, with those same three strong climbs. Spyke finally admitted to being 1st MV50, John Hunt looks to be suitably recovered, Judith decided to match whatever the other half can do, Nicky walked out for something, Anna is first U23 ..... and then our driver was away for Burnsall....Results will be soon.
As for teams, the Ladies will be strongly in the mix, the men are close to Keswick, but not close enough. MV50 may well be Champions.
As it should be, Langdale is crunch. Then the final British race at Merrick, and the two Relays.

Merrick - the final, crunch British Championship race., 17th September. I've actually got around to looking at the route map, what a cracker!

Many, many congratulations to our two Bingley runners!

Sierre Zinal:- results. They take some interpreting, far beyond my understanding, so please let us know if you've been ignored. Pete Davies finished in 3.24.26, he might be 78th, and apologies for ignoring Tom Saville, 70th in 3.15.11.

from Tours of Bradwell
from Borrowdale

Saturday:- Borrowdale. English Championship. Thanks to the many representing, I seem to have avoided several runners at the Sty Head Cafe . Right to congratulate the Ladies, 2nd Team and similar? For the Vets Team? Judith was first in her category, Nicky walked out for something. And suggest that all the men's teams are banking on Langdale - to be hoped that everybody and everybody has got their entry in....Rhys was 5th, Nell was 13th, Spyke wax 3rd V50 (in a rather competitive age group..) andKeith in the prizes. Just a bit chilly if ever you were waiting around, but clear and dry.

Two weeks now until the next English, Pendleton Three Peaks.

Results from Ambleside Sports, BOFRA

Results From Stoney Middleton

Results. from Holme Moss.

Carshare is upgrading, eventually , to Windows 10, so it's some reduced contribution just now, until I gets my computer back. No doubt our Webmaster can deal with any pressing urgencies.

British Championships after Sedbergh.

The team results are on the FRA website, under Events, and then Championships. Or Here , for the British. (The link might be working this time...). The individual results seem to have wandered.. Senior Men and MV 50 are Champions, the MV40 need to deliver in Scotland.

English individual results

British Championships after Sedbergh.

Congratulations to Tom Saville, MU23 Champion. When all the results emerge, they can have a better prominence. The final race, Merrick, in September, will find people getting their last counter in, or dropping a weak result, so far too soon to be banking on some excellent current positions being maintained.

Peris Horseshoe, and Half Peris. Not in the calendar, but Saturday 10th September. Will our man be defending his title

Borrowdale - isn't far off, and is English Championships. Substitutions are allowed on the day, so please let us all know if you are sitting on an unwanted entry..
Yvonne Beckwith , email , can't use her entry, if you can make use of it. Ashley is now getting around to taking this entry......,
After Bessyboot - a new fence has emerged along the next part, which may get folk confused. As to where the fence leads, not a clue...

Lingmell Dash:-

Holme Moss. Once again, Holmfirth reminded us how to be putting on an excellent race. The legacy, no doubt, of previous organiser Russell Bangham. Seven pounds, free drinks and top class food afterwards, and lots of prizes throughout all the categories. As for the race, it don't get any easier as each year passes. The boggy bits were deep, but mostly the peat was dry and the rocks not slippy. It is so much harder now that we return on the outrun, whereas once we dropped off Holme Moss road to the dams and legged it in. Does someone have an accurate distance measured? It seemed a long, long way.. Kris Groom has it as 28.6km, with 1106m climb.

Snowdon:- results.
RAB Evening Mini MM:- The Manifold Valley - results
Kerridge Climb:-

Kentmere - results. a goodly set of travellers here, some most welcome new,(to me), faces. Clear, hot lower down but windy and a bit colder higher up. This is the 42nd time that Pete Bland, and his wife, have organised this race, and now he is stepping down. So many of us owe him a great deal for his contribution to this race, and many others. Another remarkable achievement was that the first winner of the race, Jeff Norman, was here running, now being 1st V70.
Results in due course.

Sedbergh Sports. English and British Championship. results

On a most quick calculation, for the Men, Pudsey are 1st, Keswick - 2nd and us - 3rd.
Ladies - Mercia- 1st , Helm Hill - 2nd , Calder Valley - 3rd and us 4th.

Rob Little, clearly much more statistically able, thinks:- "regards the British, by my calculation the senior men now can't be beaten (2 wins and a 3rd=32 points, best P&B or Keswick can get is 30 even if they win Merrick).
From DT - superb, congratulations to everyone involved. But now it's Borrowdale....job only half done...

Not a clue about the Vets, but that looks like 1st MV50 Team, and thus British Champions.
These results don't show the 5 year categories, so that will have to wait.
A very worthy Championship course. Rain always around, and although windy, not that cold. A lap around the field to thin the race down, into a long road bit out onto the fell. Two strong climbs, then a steep slithery, slidy descent into the finishing fields.

Wasdale. results . Not the best of conditions, with 40 retirements. A very strong team result from Ambleside.
John Hunt sends:- "It was wild even by Lakes standards, awesome, the forecast was bang on."
The race report mentions that it will be Championship next year....

Charlesworth and Chisworth - any results most welcome, not sure we ever found last years..
Great Hucklow:- results.
Peak Forest:- results.

Summer Series (8) - Wicken Whizz:-
Tom's Bransdale Race - N.Y.Moors.
Bamford:- results.
Black Rocks:- results
Golden Acre Park Relays - another extremely popular relay, teams of three, around this Leeds park. An event putting on a relay for all abilities. results.

Blackfell:- results - is a completely excellent AM course from Kettlewell, well worthy of Championship status. Regrettably there were only 24 runners, such a shame for the organisers and marshals. Hopefully many of us can get along next year. Plenty of rough stuff over the back of Great Whernside, then a last part across to Hag Dyke, where anyone finding any correct line would have thrived. Tom Brunt, 2nd,, Ashley, 1st V50, and Greg removed the Team Prize, so a need to be retaining that next year.

Heptonstall Festival:- results.
Round Sheffield Run - results.

Saunders MM - from Pooley Bridge:- results. I'll surely have missed people off DPFR results, so please let us know when you've been ignored...

Lakeland Classics:- I've not yet found any official team results, but Ennerdale looks good, though I'm not knowing whether a Lady counts for the Team points...

Buttermere Horseshoe. This year a counter for the Lakeland Classics, and also the Carshare League. results. With taking the first three places, a clear win for Borrowdale, but 2nd will be useful Lakeland Classics points.

Wharfedale 2 or 3 Peaks:- results. Much like "Grin and Bear it", for the local Mountain Rescue, around Buckden Pike and Great Whernside. Only two peaks for Carshare, quite far enough. But hoping Willy never finds out, there was a most crafty recce of secret lines off Great Whernside. So when the final Carshare League race rolls around, might Carshare be hurtling past, whilst others are wading through the boggy swamps?

Seniors Results.

Settle Hills - results. One of the much better Medium races, starting from Settle market square, and previously used as an Inter-Counties course. A long sharp uphill, then to scenically roll around Attermire Scar, with a good mixture of ups and downs, mixed with ample rough stuff across some grassy bits.

Not long now until AS Sedbergh Sports, 9th July. A crunch need to be getting there in full strength and depth, as other individuals and teams can do a whole load of overtaking in the last two British events, and it is also an English Championship.

Cwm Pennant:- British Championship 2. and also Carshare League. - results .
A clean sweep for the Men's Teams...
My rubbish mathematics gives us 71 points, then Keswick on 79 points. The crunch is getting the team out, and then getting them non-counters strongly into the mix, and vitally here we have John Hunt, Dave Taylor and David Lund home before Keswick's 5th counter. Marvellous all-round support from so many people. Keswick, playing at home a lot more, are going to take some stopping, but....
Tom Saville is 1st U23, Rhys - 2nd : Tom Brunt - 3rd V40 : Spyke - 3rd V50 : Keith - 4th V60. Apologies to anyone missed out who needs a special mention...

Ennerdale:- results.
Turner Uphill Juniors:- results.

Howtown:- results. one of the gems of fellrunning, and only £3.00 for a class AL race. Surprisingly, conditions were perfect, cloudy but clear, very warm. A wander over Loadpot Hill, High Raise, Place Fell, with a nasty sting-in-the-tail up and down Hallin Fell.

Edale:- results. Several runners here impressively doubling up...
Hawkswick - BOFRA. I'm thinking Mike Egner was holding back yesterday, as he still had enough legs to be 1st V60...and others have doubled up...

"Up the Nab - English AS Championship.
Mens Results and Ladies Results
A much better course than I'd been expecting. Not any big hill, but five strong climbs, some just runnable and some right steep. A good mixture of stuff to be descending on. Warm and dry.
Good to see so many people representing, but then it is a nearly local race, and to be hoped this committment can be applied to the other important events throughout the year.
Not sure much of who did what. Judith and Nicky walked out for prizes, and it should be a 1st for the Ladies, which should also mean the LVets.
Keswick, clearly getting their act together, look to have taken, just, the Men's Team, with us 2nd?. not any idea about the other teams.

The organiser of the Howtown race scheduled for Sunday 12th June has with regret, cancelled the race"

Hawkswick - Junior Championships - results

Jack Bloor - A damp evening, but the earlier rain has pssed by. I'd forgotten what a good course this is, wandering and twisting all over Ilkley Moor. Plenty of running, fiddling through heather and swamps to be sinking in. Tom Brunt, clearly fresh from Saturday, was 4th and 1st V40. results

Coniston:- dire conditions yesterday had put the race in jeopardy, but a safe compromise was worked out to avoid the drop off Coniston Old Man, which is slippy at the best of times. From Swirl Hawse we dropped to Levers Water, and then across to join the usual descent route. Plenty of snow around, filling in the holes between lumps of rock, so every opportunity to crash badly. Results .
