Fox and Hounds Fell Race Results 2014
Weather was not on our side for The Fox & Hounds as it approached it’s 30th birthday.
Mist was thick and there was a gentle drizzle so much so that a number of runners actually used their compasses! It was clear from the comments of the leading group after they finished that the race had been a bit of an adventure with the two principles Paul Butler and Danny Braun having to correct navigational errors on more than one occasion.
Paul just edged out Danny in the final section with Ken Maynard an excellent third. The women’s winner Kay Neesam had no such problems and produced an excellent time of 80.22. she made a clear gap on Angharad Owen from Check point two to Old Hannah’s Nick. Angharad herself just managed to get clear air between her and Natasha Geere in third. In the team event Sunderland Strollers won the women’s section from New Marske H. The men’s team was won by Esk Valley ahead of Pickering and S’land Strollers. In the Winter Championship Kay Neesam was the overall women’s champion whilst in the men Jayson Cavill was champion. I will provide full details of the championship results and positions in each category at the first of the Summer Series at Carlton Bank Top on Wednesday evening May 7th. Well done to all competitors all passing kit inspection. Best wishes Dave. Click here for full results.
