Erika smashed Clart Record by 40 Seconds !
Race 9 of the Northern Runner Winter Fell race Series provided some exciting racing. Dave parry’s report is as follows:
The sun (which was ordered beforehand) shone it’s fading wintery heat and a cool breeze meant it was cool in the shade but generally excellent running conditions except for the ‘Clart’ in the middle section which slowed everyone down. This did not stop Erika Johnson from a storming run to break the old course record by just over 40 seconds. Andrea Lancaster and Kay Neesam had an excellent battle to come in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
In the Men’s race there was a great battle between the front three with just a few seconds separating them at the finish. Dave Smith in the end edged out Philip Elliott-Dick and Dan Middlemas. An excellent day out and many thanks to The Cleveland Inn for hosting us and providing the warm fire.
