Clay Bank West Results
A classic wet November day that saw intermittent showers of sleet with a temperature on the tops close to freezing. A record entry turned out for this event and it was a whirl to ensure everyone was registered. We even had to employ a cross country type finish with a roped off finishing lane.
Will Horsley set off without his dog and ran a blinder to finish well clear of a competitive field behind him. In fact the next five runners finished within touching distance of each other. In the women’s event Shelli Gordon battled with a much younger Charlotte Edge to finish just ahead on the line.
The men’s team event was won by Northumberland Fell Runners just ahead of Esk Valley Fell Club. There were a record number of teams finished in the men’s competition. In the women’s team event New Marske continued their dominance with a strong challenge from Thirsk & Sowerby. Well done to all competitors. It took a little while to iron out results so if there are any hiccups let me know. Best wishes …… Dave.
