“Despite the inclement weather, there was a great turnout with 34 NFR runners taking part at Brough Law. This was the best attendance at a Club Championship race for ten years.” – Mark

“Beautiful weather for the February favourite that is High Cup Nick. Organised by ex NFR member Morgan Donnelly in aid of Dufton village hall fund, truly an early season gem. The race is always well subscribed with a quality field from women and men.
We had Karen Robertson and Nina Cameron ut for the ladies and Nick Swinburn, Roger Sillito, Kris White, Chris Eggett and myself from the chaps.
It felt unseasonably warm to me, last year was at least 10 degrees colder and the beast from the east hit three days later.
So a lovely race with blue skies…
Nick passed me on the way in and i shouted how did you you do and he shouted “just”
Nick finished just ahead of Ricky Lightfoot to win under the course record by 45 secs. Ricky was also under the course record. Carl Bell was in third.
Roger was back in 25th and 4th v40, followed by Kris and Chris. I brought the lads home in the 140’s.
Karen was in well before me and was first fv50 and Nina 2 minutes after me with a 6 minutes PB. So very proud of you all!
