Congratulations to Jackie and Phil Scarf on completing the Bob Graham Round on 11th June, along with friend Doug Gurr.
Jackie came in before the boys, in 23:35; with Doug completing in 23:36 and Phil in 23:42.
And on the next weekend, Dave Almond romped round in a speedy 21:51. Well done Dave!
We are going to run out of room on our plaque of Bob Graham completers!!
Two of our Calder Valley members represented Yorkshire in the Inter Counties in the borders of Scotland on 28th May.They did themselves and the club proud with Ben Mounsey being the 3rd counter to take team silver and Jo Buckley being the 1st counter for her Yorkshire team to take team bronze.
Jo has now been selected for England in the International Snowdon race.
Last weekend (13th/14th May), Linda Murgatroyd stormed round the Bob Graham in fine style. Strong and smiling all the way round, never once looking like she might fail, Linda shrugged aside the poor weather to return to Keswick Moot Hall in 23hours 15mins.
It was a tremendous day for the club at the Calderdale Way Relay. For the first time ever, our A team won the event.
Then to prove the strength in depth in the club, our next team won the mixed team category – again a first for the club. Our Vets team were 3rd vets team; and the Mixed-B team were 7th out of 11 mixed teams.
Truly a great day in the sunshine for CVFR.
