Fellsman 2017

Six Harriers turned out this year for the 55th Fellsman event held last weekend, a 60 (or so) mile jaunt (interspersed with eating and drinking tea at regular intervals) round various bits of the Yorkshire Dales (including two of the 3 Peaks in the race taking place on the same day). Conditions were pretty good during the day, a bit windy and chilly at night on the tops.

Five managed to complete the whole route... Harriers place and times below:

Position Name Time
103 Graham Brown 17:16
109 Amanda Calvert 17:31
181 Joanna Miles 20:33
181 Julian Brown 20:33
260 Nancy Bunyan 25:14
 
Andy covered the 37.7 miles to Fleet Moss. No mean feat in itself. Well done everyone !

As always huge thanks to the organisers and marshals for providing entertainment, fry-ups and type 2 fun (whatever that is) for us for 48 hours or so. (not to mention the rather nice medal they gave me for completing 20 laps)
 
It went better for us than for some...
