Saltergate Gallows Fell Race Results 2015
A challenging day with the wet, particularly underfoot for the second race in the Northern Runner/Esk Valley Winter Fell Race Series. This did not deter the mud loving field and saw 70 finishers in the main still smiling! The women’s race was in the early stages a contest between Karen Pickles of Pudsey and Sarah Attwood of York Knavesmire, with Louise Venables not too far away. As the race developed the gaps just grew to eventually give the veteran Karen a comfortable win. Sarah however led her team to victory ahead of Esk Valley Fell Club. In the men’s race it was the debutant to this league Richard Sirrs of The Orchard Park Club who eventually had the victory over his three main challengers:- Chris Roberts, Harry Holmes and ‘The Beast’ Paul Butler. Again the second placed man Chris Roberts led his York Knavesmire team to victory, ( making it a double,) over Esk Valley. Click here to see full results.
