    THE FELL RACE

    The annual fell race for the club starts at the Royal Hotel at Dockray at 11.00 am on the day of the Club Dinner.

    The Race runs round Gowbarrow, passing over the summit and starting and finishing at the Royal.  The route can be done in either direction.  Food and drink is, needless to say, available afterwards in the Hotel.

    Fell Race – 20th January 2018

    Possibly the most snow for many years was lying on the Lakeland fells – however the start line was reached by 10 keen individuals champing to get going !!  Interesting conditions watched by a faithfully collection of spectators along the route. Well do to new members and first timer Jim, who beat the well honed Duncan to first place.  Belinda stormed along to be first (and only) lady.

    The results of the Fell Race are as follows…

    1 Jim Haworth  48:15
    2 Duncan Campbell  52:01
    3 Alex Heron 54:30
    4 Belinda Lloyd 1:01:40
    5 John Davis  1:02:00
    6 Alan Davis 1:04:45
    7 Phil Blanshard 1:05:13
    8 Ron Kenyon 1:08:15
    9 Jonny Wilson 1:09:22
    10 Alasdair Rutherford – took a more leisurely pace to time his return to join all in the pub

    As mentioned snow condition were amazing – and Gary and Jane followed by Phil, Ron and Alex (without skins) skied up onto Common Fell – with G&J going on to Hart Side and back by Dowthwaite Head and all the way by road to Dockray.
    Most amazing day for the fell race.

    2016 Race – 7th February 2016

    Duncan Campbell 45-45
    Phil Blanshard 46-35
    Iain Steele 46-45
    Belinda Lloyd 55-03
    Johnny Wilson 58-07
    Meg 58-07 (though she was hampered by having to wait for Johnny)
    Steph Marshall 60-06
    Ron Kenyon 64-14
    Eric Parker 73-03
    The weather turned to be not too bad for the race.  – three new faces (Duncan, Iain and Steph) lined up on the start line not quite sure what they had let themselves into.  Belinda stormed away to an early lead.  Duncan, who had not run for yonks came home first, and teh ever competitive Phil just pipped Iain to second place.  Steph paid an unintentional visit to look at Aira Force (from the bottom) and not sure if Johnny should be disqualified with the help given by Meg.  Well done all. Shame Al was not able to run – he has only missed two since the runs started so many years ago.

    2015 Race – 10th January 2015

    Britain was being buffeting by winds this day and there was the odd “flurry” of white passing by.  11 lined up for the race with a number of cheer leaders along the course. The white stuff came in near the end to help with the “enjoyment”. Andrew Blenshard lead the way and came home to win in 44.00 – followed by father Phil in 46.45.  The Baums had a close battle with Jane (47.10) just beating Gary (47.11).  The new clockwise route was taken and most went the right way though Steve Tinworth went over a bridge and presumably back over one somewhere !  Well done to all

     

    2014 RACE   – 8th February

    Probably the wettest run ever.  Not many people seen on the route – no idea what they must have thought of the five battling round.  Well done to Gary, Alex, Al, Ron and John  – and thanks to the support teams of Jane, Linda and Margery
