The North East’s Premier Fell Running Club Website by Merlin
OnThe 39th running of the Gisborough Moors now back in its traditional April slot, nicely book ended the 2015/16 Esk Valley/Northern Runner winter series with the 38th version opening the winter series back in October. The change around to accommodate a practice running of the Three Tops English championship event. Had the event been held 24 hours previously then competitors may have been faced with the snow that blanketed the high parts of the North Yorkshire moors, instead the skies were clear, the sun shone, an ideal day for fell running, though there was a chill breeze and the course heavy in parts. The conditions were a reminder of why the mandatory kit must be carried, apparently good conditions are deceptive, becoming very testing for an injured or worse immobile runner. With much still to be decided in the winter series age categories a good field of 146 started the race. Harry Holmes, York Knavesmire maintained his recent good form to claim the race victory and seal overall series victory, Paul Butler of Loftus came in second close enough to ensure Harry knew he was in a race and Lee Bennett now of NFR was third. In the ladies race, Scout Adkin also of York Knavesmire came very close to what looked like an unlikely race record in the conditions, though had to settle for the ladies race victory and a position good enough for eighth overall, Catherine Davis of NFR was second and in her first fell race Natalie Curgenven, individual placed third. Ella Towers, individual in fourth, continued her consistent form to earn the Winter Series title. Knavesmire's mens packed well for team victory, again pipping Esk Valley to the series title. In the ladies team event NYMAC ladies won out and eased to the series victory. “Step by Step to Success” G’bro Moors result Winter Series Final posns Winter Series Team posns "Oyez, Oyez, Oyez!"
