Described by many as the 'best one', this 17mile brute covers some of the most challenging terrain in the Lakes. A good turnout from the club with Kieran H (11th) and Nigel W (17th) leading the way for the Helm men and Sharon T for the ladies in 7th. Good runs also from Paul Jackson, Tim Roe, and Marie Robson. Results.
Ambleside Sports and Rydal round
Much fun was had at the fair although no one managed to double up from the club for these two races. First up, the Rydal Round featured a select five from the club with Phil Thurlow leading the way, followed by Stuart Allan and the Chris S, Karl M and David A. Results. Shortly afterwards more Helm athletes appeared from out of the beer tent to compete in the famous guides race. Mark A won (for a 3rd time) and Catherine N also made the podium in third. Tom Tipping was sixth, chased down by Ben and Lee who made the top ten. Results. Pic @adamtricky73
Cracoe, Kentmere, Ingleborough, Bradda Niarbyl, Blisco, Alva, and Reston Scar
Quite a few races to catch up on that have taken place over the past week. From this Woodentops pic John Armistead is making a good effort at keeping up with Hannah R who recorded another victory in the BOFRA series. Results. Meanwhile a large Helm contingent tackled the 40th Kentmere Horseshoe and Ali R, Jenny R, Jo W, and Marie R took the team prize, with Ali 6th and 1st v40. Paul Aitken had a storming run to finish 6th, closely followed by Nigel W (9th) - who completed a double header as he was 1st v40 at Ingleborough on Saturday. He was joined by Sharon T (4th) and Stuart Allen for Helm. Kentmere results. Ingleborough results.
Earlier on the Isle of Man at Bradda Niarbyl six Helm runners made it across the water, Kieran H finishing a great 11th and Nigel W (20th) and Andy T (66th) in this competitive English championship counter. The ladies v40 packed really well and we think they achieved 2nd team - well done Carrie G, Jo W and Marie R. Results.
Alistair Dunn made his well trodden path up the steep slopes at Alva, this time finishing an impressive 3rd. Sharon Taylor was 2nd and Hannah R 3rd in the ladies and Andrew Russell completing an impressive showing for Helm. Results.
Blisco dash results. Well done to Paul A who was 5th Lee Knight and Jordan Rawlins 1st u18.
On the same Wednesday evening Reston scar scamper took place with Mark A and Sharon T winning, and too many other Helm prize winners to list. See here for results.
