=============================================

British Fell Relay Championships.

Knavesmire fielded a team of six of our hardiest ‘mountain goats’ for one of the biggest events in the Fell Running Calendar.

This year the relays were held North of the border at Luss on the banks of Loch Lomond and would be run upon the challenging Trossoch Mountains .

Leg 1 will be a solo leg of 5.9 km with an ascent of 427m (navigational experience and skills will be required). Leg 2 is a pairs’ leg of 13 km with 1096m of ascent (and a nice sting in the tail) (navigational experience and skills will be required). Leg 3 is the pairs’ navigation leg and will provide all that is expected from a competition championship nav leg, with good route choice over some beautiful running terrain (navigational experience and skills will be required). Leg 4 is a solo leg of 8.3 km with 653 m of ascent.

Knavesmire’s Nik Zizzler ran leg one and gave the team a great chance finishing well, placing   22nd out of over 100 teams entered.

Leg two was undertaken by Harry Holmes and Chris Roberts , both strong runners who pushed the team up to the heady heights of  14th position  .

Unfortunately things went a little bit wrong on leg three, the conditions in the mountains were rain and low cloud, which made the navigation leg very tricky , especially for those club pairings not familiar with the area and now having to attempt to find their way around it at speed with little visibility  .  By the end of this leg our wandering pair of Neil Stabbs and Simon Collins had sunk the team back to 53rd place.
The challenge of the nav leg can be appreciated by viewing the ‘ spaghetti’ of various routes shown in this STRAVA comparison 

Sam Allin was 15th fastest on the final leg , making back some of the places lost , for a final team  position of  46th.
