Report from Tom Lynch: The 40th running (according to the FRA, but somewhere else said 36th?!) of the Otley Chevin Fell Race fell in half term, and the day after the Swaledale Harrogate League, so numbers were a little down on the usual for Otley, also a debut for the new black vests, which may have confused a few of the spectators. Jack Wood (Ilkley Harriers) won in 17:45, first woman was Bronwen Jenkinson (Eryri Harriers) in 21:27. For Otley I think I ‘just’ missed out on first local to Jack Wood, coming in 17th in 20:54, followed by Tom Pomfrett (22nd) in 21:18, James Rawstron (42nd) in 23:09, Kirsty Pomfrett (80th) in 26:16 and Antonio Cardinale (104th) in 39:27. Strong performance all round, with those of us that ran it last year taking at least a minute off our times.
