Fell update – April 2017

Well done to everyone who completed the Gisborough Moors race last weekend, with excellent performances from Eddie (again!) and Kirsty Struthers who both won their categories. There were also a few good runners up.

The Ladies also won the ladies race, with the mens team coming second.

This has changed things in the ladies fell champs with Kirsty closing in on Iona. Eddie has extended his lead with Kev deciding to do the Duathlon instead.

Well done also to David Allison who did well last week at the moors race and has finished the tough 3 peaks race today in about 4 and half hours, getting some training in for Jura by the look of things.

This was the last of the winter series, next up is the Fox & Hounds chase at Ainthorpe near Castleton (starting @7pm). I've done this race before and it was a good race, it is about 9 miles long so could be getting chilly and dark by the end, so if you are thinking of doing it be prepared. It also carries 5 bonus points.
