  1. A surprise sunny evening saw the 35th Chevin Fell Race unveil. A good turn-out for Otley despite the Half-Term and some great encouragement from non-participating club members. Thanks. Everyone especially loved the steps – Excellent commitment and full-on efforts from all who entered – Well done all. The presentation and food in the Red Lion afterwards an added bonus.

  2. I make it 5th and 7th actually, 2nd and 3rd old ladies. I guess I’ll have to wait til next year to beat your record, Rachel 😉
    I was quite proud of my whizzy descent, as opposed to my wimpy (walking up the steps) ascent, but am now struggling to get up the stairs at home!

  3. There were others in this – I saw Gloria going well. But it was a lovely night and even stopped raining. Good buffet in the Red Lion afterwards. Cheers to the Skyrac. Matt

  4. I think the enigmatic “15th lady” is our very own Gloria Jackson. Lovely race and nice buffet. Lots of support from OAC members and an olympic triathlete. Wimped out a bit on the descent – particularly at the top of Johnny Lane as it was somewhat slippy. Didn’t fancy a tumble on the tarmac. I need more practice !!

  5. WOW , What a bunch of “Black and White” Warriors, well done every body, well done Antonio!
