Scotland, England and Wales!!!!

A busy weekend of racing saw club members travelling to Scotland, England and Wales and with great success. On Britians highest mountain Ben Nevis Andy Fleet had the run of his life to take the under 23s title in a time of 1hr 51mins. With his trophy overfloweth with alcohol he celebrated in style in the evening. His head was more painful than his legs in the morning!!! Steve Smithies had something to celebrated as he has at long last got under the 2hour barrier in a time of 1hr 57mins. On their first go at this race husband and wife team Bill and Anne Johnson had great runs in times of 2hrs 4mins and 2hrs 10mins respectively. Anne was 5th lady and 2nd veteran. In the Welsh hills the 40th birthday celebrations kicked off with Karl Gray taking 1st place (48min13sec) at the Moel Hebog race and not to be outdone Womens Captain Helen Fines (58min 42sec) replicated his win. With a much improved performance from Mens Captain Ben Mounsey in 3rd and team mate Alex Whittem placing 4th they had worked hard for their beers afterwards. Trevor Murgatroyd and Birthday Girl Sharon Godsman looked to have had an enjoyable day out on the fells. Closer to home at Blackshawhead Fete Race in the sunshine it was local man Ben Crowther of Halifax Harriers who took first place in 38mins 1sec just 56 seconds in front of Calder’s under 18 Max Wharton.
