The weather just held off for a great night of fell running at the third counter in the Dave Parry/Northern Runner Summer Fell Race Series, Whorlton Run. Thanks to Ian McPherson and his team for holding the event, which we think has the longest lineage of our fell race series, starting in the 1960's as a village festival run.There were 109 starters and finishers so well done everyone and £300 to playing fields funds, much appreciated by the playing field association who manage the site.In the tale of the tape, overall winner was Rory Stead Aberdeen AAC though lives locally, with second going to Michael Joyeux of Quakers. 3rd and 4th was the battle of York with Acorn's Paul Whittaker leading homes Knavesmires Simon Collins. Darlington Harriers claimed the men's team with Paul Lowe, Paul Allan, Shaun Marshall and Garry Collinson. Kay Neesam eased to victory in the women's race and led home the womens New Marske Harriers team to victory, with support from Kath Aspin (newly crowned BMAF V50 champion) and Shelli Gordon (easing back from her Hardmoors 200). Second place was claimed by Ella Towers - indivdual and 3rd went to Natalie Curgenven of Darlington Harriers.Supporting the Fell Runners Association's initiative to tempt younger seniors into fell running, the men's under 23 winner was Matthew Bowman, Billingham Marsh House and in the women's category Elizabeth Hall, individual.
