Hodder Valley Show - Billy and Tom English Champions - v50 team champions and womens team silver
Just in case you have missed the 'Twitter storm', a big effort by the travelling Helm runners and a certain Borrowdale star has meant we secured a number of podium positions in the final placings of the 2014 English championship (provisionally). Tom A, competing for GB, meant he couldn't run Saturday's final race leaving the door open for Rob Hope, should he win, to finish equal first. However a blistering run from Morgan Donnelly, secured the tltle for Tom. An amazing achievement. Not to be outdone, Billy secured the v55 title, the vet 50 mens team took gold and the women silver. Can the season get any better? Relays soon…..
Well done the Helm trio of Sharon T, Dave W and Russ C who ventured North, especially Sharon who was 3rd…Results
A large Helm turnout for this surprisingly low key race that packs a good 5000ft of climbing into 10 miles, not to mention the sting of all stings in the tail. The regular battle between Adam P (4), Lee P and Paul A, enhanced by Mark H's speedy run, ensured Helm took the team prize. Also making it round for free tea and cake were, Craig B, Jonny M, Mick H, Brian T, David A and Chris S. Some pictures and here. Not sure where the ladies were??
