Bowland Fell Runners News: April 2013

News: April 2013

Cool conditions made for ideal running in yesterdays 3 Peaks race - won again by Joe Symonds - and the race saw another good turnout for the club.

Martin Hurst showed good form in his first attempt at the race - sub 4 hrs and Mark Chip managed to avoid his infamous "Ingleborough bonk" this year to finish well. Both Steves were still smiling at the finish to complete the vets team.

As a bonus, Rich won the Tankard for the "first runner from a Lancashire club" ... so only beaten by 19 yorkies, cumbrians, scots, spaniards etc etc

Results for the club were;

A glorious, sunny, Lakeland day brought the crowds out on Saturday for Wynn and Steve's races. I counted about 20 Bowland vests running in the two races with seemingly the rest of the club out marshalling, organising or supporting.

A huge thanks to all those involved for putting on such a great race - I could even take advantage of the FREE BEER afterwards this year thanks to new member Pete Shanahan's offer of a Lancaster lift!

Just a quick post to say that I've sent £144 to Bowland Mountain Rescue from the cancelled Fiendsdale race. A big thank you to all those who donated their entry fees.
