“A few photos from the 12.5 mile/2600ft BL Gisborough Moors fell race held in almost balmy conditions on Sunday. 12 NFR’s took part with category prizes for Garry Owens and Nina Cameron. Nick Swinburn won but was running in his Morpeth Harriers vest as he had forgotten his NFR one.”
Congratulations to Nick Swinburn at the Rivington Pike Race on Saturday! Results | Photo courtesy of Mike Powell:

A note from Ian Holland of the North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team:
“Entries for this year’s Allendale Challenge organized by the North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team, on 7th April, are going well at present there are 75 entries for the fell race. NFR members who intend entering save £5 if they enter before the end of January. Entries are via Si Entries.
Entries (Si Entries) have also opened for this year’s Alwinton Three Tops Fell Race which takes place on the Saturday 16th June. There is a 24k race and also a shorter 10k race to encourage less experienced fell runners. Both courses are well marked and marshalled by MR team members.
Proceeds from these events help to fund the annual running costs of the Rescue Team, currently running at about £15000. We would be grateful if NFR members could continue to support our events.“
