Saturday 2nd November – Hellvellyn Trail Race

Report from Jackie Ackroyd: Andy and I took part in the Hellvellyn trail race. This was the last in the series of three

The weather was awful with gales and driving rain . The bad conditions meant the race was shortened from 15k to 10k .
We missed out Grisedale due to snow. I was aware of runners falling about me on the narrow paths.
In the end our times were respectable .Andy did 51.05 and I did 55 41 . The race was won by John French from Eden Runners in 35.36 and first lady was Christina Wiejak, Barrow and Furness Striders in 40.28 mins.

It was a pleasant surprise to discover I won the first over 50 for the series. Full results here
