The Seven Sevens - British Championships rd 1

Helm travelled on mass to this fantastic event, this time by executive coach to avoid anyone having to drive and then run 18 miles over Northern Ireland's toughest terrain. Unlike our last couple of trips the weather gods were kind allowing for stunning vistas all around. Success at these events never comes easy, which means the win for Victoria Thompson and 2nd for Janie Oates and the team prize with Bianca Dyer 2nd v40 is all the more impressive. Phil Rutter came in 7th overall and Kenny Richmond 13th 1st v50, Keiran Hodgson 17th, Nic Barber 18th, Ross Bibby 37th counting for the men. Many fantastic results and a race report here. Initial glancing suggest the teams have done really well. We also set a record for the single Guinness order (25)at O'Hare's in the evening warm down...

Success on the Hills and on the Flat

A great weekend just past which proves it's difficult to keep up. Firstly well done to James Parsons who was 6th in the eye watering Northern Traverse from St Bees to Robin Hood's bay and Andrew Russell for completing in the Lakes Traverse in the same event. Meanwhile Joe Kenny set a blistering 2.36 in the Manchester marathon, chased by the returning to action Ben Procter in 2.46! Finally of course it was the presentation day for the Winter League and the Arant Haw race  - won outright by the increasingly speedy Hannah R. Results for the WL here, congratulations to category winners Tim Lamont, Alice Rea, Sharon Taylor, Brian Pennington, James Baron, Sharon Dixon, Dylan Cater, Emily Swarbrick, James Baron, Ray Gill, Wendy Dodds, John Taylor and Lynne Whittaker.

 Spring in their steps...

All of a sudden racing seems well underway and over the past week we have had some amazing results, firstly with the Winter League several races in, new recruit Tim Lamont has taken a liking to the fells with a victory in all rounds so far...including a win at Loop Latrigg. Meanwhile in the Spanish sunshine Chris Richards took the win whilst representing Cumbria in the Transgrandcanaria 2022, and Hannah Russell won Black Combe in a new record time.....also (unusually) in the sunshine.


British Fell Relays

More to follow on this about the fantastic day, the great performances, but the first word will go to all the volunteers and contributors who made it happen - Thank you. In the meantime...RESULTS...also more to come on the final champs positions and the Hodgson Bros...we've been busy...

Kentmere Horseshoe

Results here for the 4th English Championship counter. Amazing running once again from Chris R who came in 2nd a shade outside the old record, with Rob Jebb (2nd v40) Phil Rutter, Sam Dixon and Adam Perry helping Helm to 2nd team. Hannah was once again first back for the ladies in 6th and with Sharon (2nd v40) and Bianca made it 3rd Team - a great turnout for the club in our local race with over 50 runners....Also great to see 3 u23s racing with Lewis Bowness coming 3rd, Jack Byrne 6th and Nick Peat 7th.

Alderman's Ascent English Championship success

Alderman's ascent was the third championship race and was conducted in what could only be described as a cauldron. Great running by all Helm who made the trip and with some fantastic results in the conditions. Chris Richards 4th and Hannah Russell 5th were first back for Helm and news just in, their efforts have been rewarded with senior England vests; a brilliant result.  Not only that, but returning to racing Lucy Spain, had a fine run to assist Hannah and Sharon to first team. Following on from strong performances in the first race, Ennerdale, where Rob Jebb, Phil Rutter, Joe Kenny, Chris Richards and Adam Perry help the men take second team, and Sharon Taylor, Janie Oates and Victoria Thompson took first for the women. Blencathra was the 2nd race and once again Chris had a fine run for 2nd and in the women's Hannah 3rd helped the team to 3rd place with Sharon and Jenny Rice. Full standings can be found here. Kentmere next.
