Sunday 19th July: Holme moss fell race

Report from t’president:

I went over to Holmfirth to do this AL Fell race, 18 miles and lots of climbing. I’d never done it before, no recce and the navigation looked tricky. The day didn’t start well with heavy rain most of the drive there and cloud on the hills, but though windy turned into a good running day. This is a beast of a race, well up there with Tour of Pendle, vertiginous descents through cliffs and full hands on climbs, then lots of boggy runnable stuff on top. I was very pleased to get round relatively unscathed, apart for a black and blue finger from my second fall. Still had some left in the last few miles to gain some places, which prevented me from finishing even further back. Recommend this race – only an hour away.
Matt Lalor – Barlick 2.44.21, Helen Berry – Holmfirth 2.56.57 Followed by the president 123 of 154 in 4.18.07

  1. Well done Matt, local lady Helen wasn’t too far behind the winner, 12 mins in nearly 3hrs ain’t too far.

  2. No, only half of it with a damaged finger! Wish I’d taken my wedding ring off before I fell – it was agony to get off once the finger had swollen nicely.
