  1. Helen Beck was awarded 1st female in the fell, although she entered and intended to race the trail version. She got lost and ended up running and ultimately winning the alternative race.

  2. Fantastic running guys to get an OAC 1 and 2. Frank you could be a contender for this years runner of the year comp !

  3. you “Black and Whites” were all fantastic, credit to Otley ac., well done Frank, great running Liam, great results all round!

  4. Well done Frank,Liam. guess it shows that the training works. Be good to get more people along to sessions.

  5. Good runnable trails on this race, will use that route for training. Cracking results from Otley, and it proves that reccying the route and keeping your whits about you is pretty important on the open moors, as quite a few went wrong.

    I’ll be up for more structured training over winter Mark. Quite pleased with a top 10 finish despite still not getting out much.
