02/06/10 Blencathra Fell Race - from Will Horsley

Summer was back just in time for the Blencathra fell race with a glorious evening. A starting line-up of over 100 included many stars of the scene. NFR was represented by Dave A, Chris R (both having done Two Riggs on Tuesday night too), Joe Faulkner, Billy Fraser and me [starting a little later than planned, Trevor Wakenshaw ran too - ed]. Jim Davies won by literally a mile. By the time the chasing pack had reached Bowscale Fell he was almost out of sight about half a mile ahead. I was in third place most of the way around but was overtaken by Ben Abdelnoor of Ambleside with 400 yards to go, who eventually came through for 2nd. So I got 4th in about 66 mins. I'm afraid I didn't stick around to see anyone else finish as I had quite a long drive home and work the next day. Great race, highly recommended.
