Winter Half Tour of Bradwell 2018 10/02/2018

39th James Lurati 2:31:03,
72nd James Watson 2:56:14,
146 finishers.

James writes; “At our Christmas Dinner this year Paul suggested we set ourselves a running goal to achieve in 2018 so I thought I would take the bait and have a go.

So, ‘Tada!!’ I did my first proper Fell Race ‘the Tour of Bradwell’ yesterday.  I say ‘proper’ in that it involved lots of mud, some cleverly concealed ice, low cloud and all whilst running 15 miles over hill and dale, hanging out with hardy men and women for a few hours.  They are a different breed to softie road runners.

Anyway, mission accomplished!  I finished it in just under three hours and came half way in the field see https://www.racetek-live.co.uk/website/public_results/548/complete_results/ and didn’t break my neck in the process.

Thanks Paul plus extra egging on from Elaine”

Races for this years league are published at the Club league page

The Ramathon and Derby 10k races that were popular last year are still in and there are two or three additions this year.  A return of the local Riber Run and a first year for the Lea Bunny Run 10k as well as a first year for the 16 mile Exterminator fell race.  If you know any races that several people are planning to race in you’re welcome to suggest them for inclusion.

Handicaps will be calculated once I’m initiated into the secrets of those dark arts.

Stuart Learmouth Undulator 22 Oct 2017

Results for this year’s Stuart Learmouth Undulator are posted on the race page here.  A fantastic turn-out of 162 in hard conditions, almost 10% of whom came from Wilmslow along with big groups also from Beeston and Long Eaton and visitors from Rossendale.  Congratulations to Harry Holmes on his second win in a row and Billy and Ben Cartwright for racing and finishing together in second/third. The women’s title looked a competitive race, the three first finishers battling it out from at least Hopton where I saw them together, to the finish with eventually Catherin Wilson of Beeston pipping Wirksworth’s Jacqui Hawkins (pictured at Harboro rocks) and Belper’s Ruth Keeley.
