New Year’s Day 2014 – Captain Cook Fell Race

Report from Graham Lake:

What’s fast becoming a festive tradition for the Lake family kicked off in some drizzle and a chill wind from Great Ayton village centre.It’s a 5 mile race with 1043′ of ascent up to Captain Cook’s Monument and back. There’s plenty of road, but the muddy bits really made up for it. The descent is really fast and exciting and worth the race fee alone. I was running with quite a few others for most of the  race, overtaking and being overtaken which kept the pace pretty high,  and the last blast down a footpath to the village was very  competitive.Not sure on position, but I knocked about a minute off
last year’s time, full results here: Esk Valley Fell Club. Hangover? What hangover?

ps. Graham finished 14th in a time of 36:28 and the race was won by James Bulman, North York Moors in 33.09 & 1st lady was junior, Bronwen Owen, Scarborough AC and 9th overall in 35:58

  1. It must be pointed out that the women’s race was won by 16 y/o junior Bronwen Owen in an incredible time of 35.58 in 9th place!

  2. Well done mate. I recognise Bronwen’s name from Roseberry and seeing how strong she was then.

  3. Well done Graham! Bronwen sounds like another Annabel Mason! Faster than a lot of men! Sounds like a good race
