CVFR welcomes race wins & newest member

Calder’s Chris Holdsworth stormed home to victory in the Lakeland Trails Marathon, starting at Coniston on Sunday. This 26.2 mile route covers almost 3,000ft of climb. Despite a minor navigation error which cost him a few minutes, Chris showed his running class to take the win and the course record in an incredible time of just under 2hrs.47mins.

Chris on his way to a course record and great win

Chris was delighted with his win: “Started the year with a trail marathon and ended it at another at the Lakeland Trails Marathon (with a big fat Covid sandwich in the middle). After the long distance qualifiers were cancelled last month, I put my years’ worth of training towards today’s race…and what a race it was. Amazing race (well worth the accolade of one of Europe’s top 10 trail marathons) and so well organised, even with Covid…There’s not been enough chances this year to enjoy a post-race Dominos, so I’m going to slam that bad boy down my face and enjoy every minute of it. Roll on 2021 with lots of mountains, races and pizzas for all.”
