Bleasdale Circle Fell Race 25th Feb. 2012

The race is now a pre entry only race.

Due to the cancellation of the Noonstone Fell Race which was to be on the same day, I have decided to make the race pre entry only as we are only a small race with a limit of 140 runners and I have made promises to the Landowners that we will not exceed the limit.

So if you want to run send your entry in soon.

£4 to Les Orr,

Hazelhurst Cottage,


Preston. PR3 1UY

Or, If you would like to marshall either on the Fell or lower down, then call me on 01995 678118

With the CARWAGS results being added as the last race, the 2011 Championship is now complete. The full breakdown can be seen on the club champs page of the website.

In the "best of 4" MV60 category, Ian Cookson narrowly pipped John Taylor whilst the rest of the men's categories saw Lancaster based winners with Mike Johnson (MV50), Chris Reade (MV40) and Richard Mellon (Open).

Rowena Browne continued her domination of the Ladies category with her 5th consecutive win.

The stats are interesting. It was good to see a record number of 59 Bowlanders competing in the champs this year and the Carwags event proved the most popular. Only 8  runners though completed the minimum number of races for their categories (down from 16 in 2006) - is racing in the club on the decline?? DIscuss!
