Saturday 14th July – Wasdale Fell Race

Report from OAC’s Sharron Smith:

Although just missed out on the prizes I was one of few women who completed the Wasdale Fell Race (21.1 miles / 9,022′)!

The race was won by Ricky Lightfoot (Ellenborough) in 3.44.44 and Jasmin Paris (Carnethy) who finished twelfth overall (4.30.54).

Sharron finished 104th (6.08.11).

I will send a full report later this week….

    Well done Sharon, 9000′ ascent! That’s like climbing 10 or more Chevin’s while doing a marathon.

    Nice one Sharon ! We covered a lot of the same ground on the Saunders last weekend so can appreciate how gruelling this race must be!!
