Flowerscar 2017

The Flowerscar Fell Race was run last Saturday. Organised by Todmorden Harriers, the senior’s race reaches the windswept hill of Flowerscar on the moorland between the Burnley and Bacup Roads.  The runners then head across Todmorden Moor towards Sharneyford before heading back to Todmorden via Tower Clough Several Calder Valley Seniors ran the race, notably Helen Roberts fifth woman and Mark Wharton third V50, but the real stars this weekend were the Calder Valley Juniors.
