Report from Christian Hosker:
I headed over to Tintwistle, near Glossop in Derbyshire this morning to run the annual Gravy Pud fell race. This was a 5.5 mile route, of which the first two consisted of a 981 ft ascent (according to my GPS). We were very lucky with some un-seasonaly fine weather, and the clear skies allowed for some cracking views of the High Peak. It added up to a thoroughly enjoyable race for a fell running novice like me.
I finished 108 in 49.07. Full results here.
Quite a few Otley AC’ers running this week including the first to break the tape Scott Harrington in a time of 17:19, followed home by Simon Anderson in 18:52.

Early results from the local run are:
Scott Harrington came fourth in the Clowne Half-Marathon, in Derbyshire, recording a personal best
time of 1:14:01. HOWEVER, he was awarded third prize as the winner was a professional guest runner!
First was Meles Okbazghi (Sheffield RC) in 1:11:51; second Mark Couldwell (Charnwood AC) in 1:12:35 and third Ian Bailey (Sleaford Town) in 1:12:44. The first lady was Fiona Davies (Kingston Runners) in 18th place overall in 1:23:45.

A sunny and frosty morning greeted the runners at the canal side start near the Railway Inn.
John won his first handicap finishing a clear winner ahead of Andy Webster. Steve Robinson recorded the fastest time of the day.
As this was the penultimate handicap race in this year’s Eric Smith trophy, Dominic needed a good finish to claw back some of Ursula’s 21 point lead. He managed to do this reducing the lead to 18 points, finishing 7th.
Dominic now needs a big turn out at the traditional Christmas ‘Ken Dixon’ Handicap at Timble to stand any chance of over turning this lead, but Ursula is undoubtedly the bookies favourite to take the title.
However, it should be noted that it is the best 10 results that count. And what’s that phrase; it’s not over till the…

Matt Podd reports: Five Black & White ‘warriors’ ventured to Lancashire to test ourselves on this beast of 17 miles and nearly 5000ft of climbing; basically five times up and down Pendle Hill.
We were blessed with a chilly, but a wonderful day, with huge views lit up by patches of sun. Matt Broughton, Shane Ewan, Andy Hunt, Jim Sneath and I joined a very illustrious field for the 30th running and had a grand day out.
I didn’t see Andy or Shane at the finish, but Matt B (a virgin in this race – bet he got a shock), beat Jim who beat me. There were times during this race when I was nearly enjoying myself, and I didn’t fall – even on Geronimo. Jasmin Paris was first woman, but I haven’t got a clue about the top end.
And here are some photos.
Andy Hunt 51, 2:43:25
Shane Ewan 198, 3:15:53
Matt Broughton 249, 3:24:49
Jim Sneath 255, 3:26:11
Matt Podd 304, 3:37:37
