Fell Racing

Fell Race Championships 2007

Winner:

Graham Moffatt


From our fell racing correspondent Glyn Sawford...


The fell race championship this year was decided by the following races, with each runner's 3 best results to count.


The first race was won by our resident fell race champion Stewart who then became a victim of injuries so giving someone else a chance this year. Race 2 saw Mark take top spot and I was third again due to Steve turning up for just 1 race, this was the second wet evening run out to Derbyshire hoping that no one else would turn up so my plan was obviously not working,


Race 3 was the last chance to be able to complete the required 3 races and Graham seized the opportunity taking first place with Mark in second and the ever-present MV70 Frank taking my third place.


Lorraine was the only lady contender for the second time and then took no further part so there is no female champion this year.


Race 4 and Mark was again pushed to second by Graham and I was third again, William experiencing his first fell race enjoyed the challenge.


Fifth and final race Mark conceded the title to Graham and with no other contenders I came second.


Graham having won the 3 races he entered became HPRC Fell Race Champion 2007.


While compiling last years 25th Anniversary edition of Running Free I came across an article from 15 or 16 years ago when a fell championship was suggested in order to attract more club members to the sport. It would appear from the results above that this has not been all that successful.
