Results and report from Bill Burlton:
“Despite early heavy rain the day brightened up so that by the time the runners set off at 2.30pm it was bright and clear with fresh breeze making ideal running conditions. The 39 runners were given a good send off by the show crowd of some 2500 people.
Conditions underfoot were fairly dry but as last year the vegetation on the main hill was quite lush making it a bit heavy going in places.
The course had been re-routed a little to follow a more runnable track at about the half-way point but this information had not been passed on to Northumberland Fell Runners who had the original course on their website. This caused a little confusion for the front runners.
First home in a time of 34.61 was David Beech of NFR, closely followed by Andy Green of Tynedale and Andy Blackett of Durham Fell Runners. First Lady home in a time of 41.28 was Rachael Vincent of Tynedale.“
Well done to NFR Carl Avery and Pam Brown (Wooler) for their wins
- here are the results from Monday’s race (thanks to Mark from Alnwick Harriers)
“John Telfer has successfully completed the UTMB in 41h 02m. He arrived back In Chamonix at 2 minutes past eleven this morning to be greeted by the Telfer family support crewe who all crossed the finish line together.
John went through some tough times dealing with the incredible heat but dug deep when needed and can now enjoy his success after all the commitment and hard work put in during the year.” – Paul
