Roseberry Topping Fell Race results 2014
The latest round of the Northern Runner/ Esk Valley Summer Fell Race Series was a balmy autumnal evening. There was a good mix of both Juniors and Seniors for the 61st running of The Roseberry Topping Races. It did not take long in the men’s race for Jack Willis to break away at the front with Duncan Bertwistle, Andy Blackett and Peter Bray
giving pursuit. It wasn’t long before, through the binoculars, I could see Jack had a clear lead coming off the top and taking the slide down to the trees to win comfortably from his pursuers.
In the women’s race it was a much closer affair with Lucy Butt and Kay Neesam head to head. Jenna Maynard and Jacqueline Keavney were the main pursuers. As it was Kay headed off Lucy in the finish section to win stretching out her initial advantage. New Marske were excellent in the team event lead by Kay to come first and second teams.
In the men’s event it was Esk Valley Fell Club led by Paul Williams who managed first and third teams, with York Acorn in between. Well done to all finishers the race having a total age range of 67 years.
