Calder Valley Fell Runner did the 1 – 2 – 3 at the local Hebden Bridge Fell race organised by Tod Harriers. The two Joes, Washington and Crossfield did battle and with a blistering start Washington took the lead. With his down and in race mode he unfortunately missed some of the flags and did a slight detour off route. Crossfield did see the flags this time came home to take the win in 47mins 44secs. Washington battled hard back through the race field but had to settle for second place being 3 minutes adrift of his team mate. Mark O’Connor had the run of his fell career to place a fantastic 3rd (51mins 06secs) and this easily secured the mens team prize. Not to be outdone Womens captain Helen “Buckers” Buchan led her team mates of Gillian Wisbey and Jackie Scarf to the women team prize.
