Report from OAC’s Matt Podd:
I did this first running (of what they hope will be an annual event) of the Charlesworth Chase Fell Race (BS 5.1 miles / 1,201′) from Appletreewick down the river to Howgill and straight up the steep side of Simon’s Seat, touch the trig and back down.
This race however had a couple of novelty features – Wharfedale Harriers put it on to celebrate the marriage of two of their members and the bride was given a head start – Chase the Bride.
Read the feature in today’s Yorkshire Post.
Then before crossing the finishing line you had to drink a pint! (Dave wimpy Wilby only had water).
Great race with breakneck descent. I was 63rd (55.03) and the only OAC runner.
Results from Wharfedale Harriers.
