Sunday 20th June – Settle Hills Fell Race

7mls 1750ft

Report from Colin Best:

A lovely warm dry day so fancied heading out to enter this race. I have done it several times before and always think that this is one of the most scenic of the Yorkshire fell races. I have more time now to take in the views.

There seems always to be a surprisingly small entry for this race but was pleased to see Martin to double the Otley contingent. Martin pulled me round the first half of the course but steadily pulled away on the second half after the steep drop down to the road.

I was 6mins slower than my best time but that was 7yrs ago.
