“Many thanks from Norham RC to everyone who turned out at Yetholm for what was a very big day for a very small club, new records all round and great to see so many new faces and NFR’s at our race, we hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did………the weather certainly helped and the cakes didn’t go wrong either!!! We were delighted to be able to donate £1000 to the Border Search & Rescue team and £500 to the Yetholm Macmillan Cancer Care group who were also generously rewarded for their efforts with £160 donated on the day, Yetholm Village Hall will also benefit……..a great day all round. There were a few items of lost property handed in please contact us and we will try to get you reunited asap. Next year it’s back to a low key event, maybe even run the opposite direction…..we hope to see some of you then A’ the best, Les”
Andy Russell writes: “I enjoyed a great day out on the 18 mile / 6000ft Long Duddon Fell race. Cool, sunny and dry weather made for great running conditions. Six NFRs made it across to the Duddon Valley. In the long race Will Horsley was first home for NFR in an excellent time of 3h 20m followed by Dexter (whose time of 3h 34m earned him third place in the MV50 category), John Butters (3h 48m), Emma Bain (5h 17m) and myself (5h 46m). James Charlton came in in 8th place on the 10 mile 3000ft Short Duddon race with a time of 1h 59m.”
