—York & District Road Race League Handicap & Presentation evening.



—Montane Lakeland 50.

An epic 50 mile tour of the Lake District with over 3000m’s of ascent. The route starts from the Northern end of Ullswater within the grand Dalemain Estate before following the Eastern shore line as far as Howtown. A quick climb and descent followed by a trek along the banks of Haweswater sees you at Mardale Head. The route from here visits Long Sleddale, Kentmere, Ambleside, Langdale and Tilberthwaite before the final climb and descent to the finish at Coniston.

—Saltaire Stampede.

The race clock will be set to 70 mins, and will count down to zero. You decide when you want to start, based on how long you think it will take you to run the course, but you must get back before the clock reaches zero! The winner will be the last person to set off, provided he / she gets back in time. The race should end with a stampede along Dockfield Road back into the brewery yard as the clock mercilessly ticks down to 0:00. Those who leave it too long and fail to ‘beat the clock’ will be eliminated from the results!

30th Clare Moffatt  49:04 ( 2nd FV45 )   Beat the clock by 55 seconds

Despite a forecast of rain and cloud the Lake District defied the gloomy predictions  and was hot, sunny and the mountain tops afforded great views of the far off lakes of Windermere, Ullswater and Haweswater.
The Kentmere Horseshoe is a 12 mile fell race around the head of the   Kentmere Valley, the routes highest points being Ill Bell ( 757 m ), High Street (828m ) and Kentmere Pike ( 730 m ).
