Report by the Hon. Handicapper:
This one is becoming a favourite shortish fell race, (~5 miles & 1500ft), if 40 minutes to an hour or so of running can be described as short, of course this is all relative depending on your natural talents. It’s a race over the hill almost reaching the village of Arncliffe before a return climb further up the valley finishing with a steepish descent and short sprint along a flatish stony track.
Local farmer Ted Mason, Wharfedale H. was first back in 36:44, 1st lady Lorena Lozano Sufrategui from the host club North Leeds Fell Runners. I was 6th in 39:54 and Caron was 56th, 57:29. All in all a superb little race with stunning early evening views of Littondale & Upper Wharfedale.
Also Late news from Bank Holiday Monday 30th May: Austwick Amble Fell Race, (~8 miles & 1200ft).
