Peak Raid 3 - Round 1, from Edale.results
"This was another well organised event from Richard Patton. The map area from last year had been extended, to give a totally different set of challenges. The key to route choice seemed to be joining up the two obvious map sectors to the east and west of the event centre. There was good route choice to be had and a mix of control placement, some being straightforward, others being less so. The weather was less than helpful, with thick mist shrouding the top half of Kinder. Richard Hunt was in his consistent good form for these events. Taking club honours with a high scoring 3rd place. There were a number of new faces from the club, doing their first score event. Tim Rutter (5th) being notable amongst them. More than a few people fell foul of the harsh penalties for late return. Rose Paxman took strange delight in being a Vet for the day - able assisted in the matter by her father."
DT - big thanks to Lewis for this....

UKA Relays:- results
Senior Men - 3rd : Calder Valley - 1st, Pudsey - 2nd.
MVets - 3rd : Borrowdale - 1st, Pennine - 2nd.
LVets - 1st, and 3rd overall.
Senior Ladies - 20th, Ambleside - 1st, Calder Valley - 2nd
An enormous thanks to Clayton for staging the event, there is a huge amount of effort, organisation and hard work involved.
Conditions were benign, cold up tops, but dry, clear and not that windy. In my thinking, this was useful, as some of the teams looked as though wet, cold clag would have been trouble.
Proper reports will need to come from Team Captains, it looked like extremely strong, and thoroughly prepared teams were at the front end, and any medalling position is some big achievement.

2015-10-17--BS3.jpgThis was the memorial plaque to Bill Smith, a fitting tribute - at my CP, last on Leg3, and where you come down off the fell at the end of Tour of Pendle, Ogden Clough. Runners were coming from all directions, and Leg3 seems to have needed plenty of correct route choice.
Scotland next year? Arrochar? But I may well be wrong.
And next year's Relays, perhaps they can, as a New Year's Resolution, get pencilled in as the priority on the new calendar?

Screes:-
Wirksworth Undulator:- results
Round Rotherham:- results.

Boxing Day - should anyone be wanting to run the Chevin Chase, Otley Chevin, best be hurrying up, it is filling up fast...

glad to see the vexed question of awarding vets teams open medals has been resolved this year. The organisers were very insistent on giving us bronze medals as well as our vets ones. Good call for future events.
