Fell Update July/August 2013
It’s been a while since the last report so quite a lot to get through
Monday Evening Fell Runs:
These have been running through most of the summer and have been regularly attracting 7 or 8. The last two will be:
12/8 Gribdale car park 6pm
19/8 Guisborough Rugby Club 6.30pm
What happens over the winter I’m not sure yet as I haven’t quite worked out what I’ll be doing, but it would be good to keep a run going, whether I’m involved or not. If anyone has any suggestions please email me.
Too much has gone on to report things in detail with a lot of races over the last two months with the Esk Valley Races, the Osmotherly Phoenix and the National Trust Bransdale race. In brief good performances from Brian Saysell, Paul Lowe, Nick Simmons, Gareth Wilson, Julian Barwick, Gary Thoms, Di Jobson, Sharon Gayter, Georgie Hill and Maddie Whyte. In the recent Gribdale Gallop race in particular good team performances with the men winning and the women taking third place.
Fell Championship Latest
This is now starting to take shape with 11 out of the 19 counting races completed, though the Bransdale result wasn’t available as I wrote this. 33 men and 9 women have now completed at least one race. The leading contenders are:
- Sharon Gayter 74 (from 4 races)
- Di Jobson 70 (from 4 races)
- Brian Saysell 65 (from 4 races)
- Mark Edwards 59 (from 4 races)
- Julian Barwick 54 (from 3 races)

- Nick Simmons 49 (from 4 races)
- William Gayter 39 (from 3 races)
- Paul Lowe 38 (from 2 races)
- Kev McLoughlin 37 (from 2 races)
Remember it’s calculated on performances in age category, 20 for a win, 19 for second and so on and it’s your best 6 results to count. The next counters are: Hanging Stone Leap, Guisborough Grunt and Roseberry Topping.
