Saturday 8th October – Langdale Horseshoe Fell Race

Renee - Langdale.Report from OAC’s Renee Saxton:

Here’s a photo from Langdale Horseshoe Fell Race (14 miles / 4,000′).

I finished 63rd overall (and second lady) in 2.45.33 ahead of Matthew John who finished 90th in 2.55.19 out of 343 finishes.

The race was won by Carl Bell (Howgill Harriers) in 2.09.13 and the first lady in 40th position overall was Hazel Robinson (Ambleside A.C.) in 2.36.57.

Results from amblesideac.

  1. That’s a great result in what is quite a tough race. Just ask Dale Foster what he thought of it after being ‘encouraged’ to try it for the first time
