Eccles Pike Fell Race - Wed Fell Champs

Tom Wild was first Harrier in an excellent 2nd place, but by being 2nd Harrier home, Ewan Douglas goes to the top of the wednesday night champs table, pipping Andy Lamont. Janet Hatton finished top lady. Final table (subject to Craig rule changes...)

Cracken Edge Fell Race

The penultimate "wednesday night fell champs" race was at Cracken Edge on the 9th August. The course was improved by a slight diversion near the start to avoid a stile that caused a lot of congestion plus the finish was moved back into the field to allow a fast grassy finish rather than the road.

Tim Stock was first Harrier home. Click on the "read more" for full Harriers results. Champs table will be updated shortly... Andy Lamont had better turn out at Eccles Pike or he may be overtaken!
