Carlton Challenge Fell Race Results 2015

A fantastic opener to the Summer Series. On a day of heavy rain we managed a
reasonable window to run with only a few spits and spots. The opening section saw Andy Blackett and last year’s champion Paul Whittaker battling for the early lead with Danny Braun &Ian McGrath but a yard behind. Andy had got a 50 metre lead by the last descent into the wood. At the ‘Angels Staircase’ Andy now had a good lead taking the
higher line. This gave him the race with Paul second Ian and Danny just lost out in the final section. In the men’s team however it was Esk Valley Fell Club led by Danny who took first from North York Moors who packed well to push Acorn into third. In the women’s event we saw a similar patter with the in form Shelli Gordon and a strong Nicola Kent contesting the lead from the first wood corner. This little battle continued right across the top and then down to the finish where Shelli just managed to beat Nicola after a very close contest. In the women’s team event Nicola led her Loftus & Whitby team to victory with Thirsk & Sowerby giving them a very close contest. Don’t forget to retain your numbers and hope to see you at the Fox & Hounds. We were most pleased to present Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team with £300.00 and wish them well in develping their centre. … Best wishes Dave Parry
