NFR Championships 2014

Here are the long awaited 2014 Championship results. Only paid up members are included in the final results. If you spot any mistakes please let Paul or Frank know as soon as possible and before tankards are engraved! First, second and third places are highlighted for those completing the minimum of one short, one medium and one long race, with a maximum of six counters.

At present we do not formally have a Junior category so although congratulations go to James Green for completing three races (short and long), his name has had to be omitted from the final results (this year at least!).

Finally, if you have any comments about the selection and format for the past year, please pass these on to either of us.

So good luck for 2015 and happy running in the forthcoming year’s Championships – still a closely guarded and undecided secret!” 

Paul Hainsworth and Frank Shillitoe”

Wadsworth Trog

Many congratulations to NFRs Emma Bain first lady (and 32nd overall) at today’s 20 mile Wadsworth Trog in very challenging conditions with most of the course either snow or ice bound. A great result.

Meanwhile The Secretary enjoyed taking in the views to finish 95th out of a field of nearly 160. However, he ran out a clear winner in the Hebden Bridge Friday night liquid refreshment stakes.” – John Telfer

Clay Bank East

A little while ago but Andy Russell writes: “Five NFRs joined over a 140 runners at this years Claybank East Race on January 4th.  Clear weather made for great visibility and crisp conditions underfoot, with many of the boggy sections being frozen over. Phil Green was first home for NFR in a time of 47.07 followed by Nina Cameron, Jason Taylor, Dave Johnson and myself. All in all a great morning out on the moors. Thanks to the organiser David Parry and his marshals for putting on this race.
