For the fell league runner of the year competition the results were processed, calculated and verified by the Hon. Handicapper and are as below. Embarrassingly I’ve gone into first place on 88.5 points, closely followed by Gary Johnson 2nd on 88.2 and Graham Lake in 3rd on 87.8.

The spot prize for the best effort against predicted finishing times, goes to James Rawstron, a Toblerone awaits you! The predicted times and method are available for each runner that took part here.

More fell points await at the next counting race  –Beamsley Beacon 22/06/2017. Predictions will be adjusted and another Toblerone will await the best individual performance on the night!

  1. Yep, who knows the inner workings of the mythical Robertshaw-Lynch method….unclear to anyone and open to question.

    On the other hand, the predicted times system for the spot prizes has obviously proved to be a noble, honest and robust system that everyone has full confidence in 🙂 #showmethetoblerone.

  2. I believe any wealth should be shared for the greater good of the (fell running) community #givemeachunkoftoblerone

  3. I concur – I feel slightly cheeky at winning a toblerone for running slightly less poorly on the Chevin than I did at Ilkley earlier this year but I take my kicks where I can get them now I’m in the V45 category.

    I’ve checked with Tom L’s formula and apparently I am OK to let you have 0.8878 of a chunk…

  4. It is great to see after many years Bob P. back to racing , as well with an impressive performance going through the finishing line in 33.22 , also my friend Don B. had a great climbing to the top and finishing in 32.41 . Gloria J. had a good race indeed in 33.26 not bad at all ,also our President Billy R. ran a solid fell race in 30.14. Well done to all .

  5. As long as you ran slightly less poorly James….phew! The system works! I’ll bring the toblerone to club next week, I can leave it in teh box if you aren’t around….could be risky. I don’t even know the inner workings of the Robertshaw method, the results just turn up on my doorstep in a brown envelope…
