Comments:-

It was the usual sunshine for this race. We seem to be getting better weather in February when in this area than in the summer! A superb race with a number of people telling me after the event that they wished they had competed as the conditions turned out to be so pleasant. We have renamed the event as ‘Not the Danby Beacon Race.’ This was a joint decision by the organisers following a few grumbles through the year by different athletes, that they did not enjoy the road section up to the Beacon itself. We therefore simply cut out this section which seems to be to the approval of competitors generally. I stated at the start that I was happy to answer questions about the route after the race and was approached by six or seven athletes/groups and thought ‘hello’ I could be in for a long constructive discussion here. It was noticeable that no-one wanted to debate the matter, (perhaps it was the call of the beer! ) but accepted the reasons given, generally stating it was a good idea. The new route is therefore about 7   miles with 1100’ of climb. Athletes should be warned however that there will be another slight detour next year just before the first beck crossing. This is to do with land drainage schemes and an effort on behalf of the organisers to meet landowners half way in an area where we are off the public right of way due to a whole range of sensible reasons, not least of which is that there are many stiles and gates on the public path, but this way we get the excitement of the open moor.

Back to the race! It was noticeable that after three miles as athletes reached the second moor that there were five athletes still in contention Paul Lowe just behind Matty Wynne with Merv and Rob Burn in close attendance. As they crossed the main moor the string began to stretch out with an interesting battle between the front two whilst Rob Burn was tracked by Peter Buckby in the over 40’s. In the women’s race Shelley Kempson had a comfortable lead over the chasers led by Sandra Jemson. In the over 50’s Geoff Coulson was just ahead of Bob Firth. As the race developed Paul lost out in the final stages due to wrong selection in route during the latter stages. Rob Burn ran on very strongly to win the over 40’s. Shelley managed her first win in the series which was pleasing for everyone as we need young people to come through. In the over 50’s Geoff just kept his lead despite missing the final descent and having to cover the extra ground. A most enjoyable day’s racing. If this had been a track and field meeting and we had encountered one or two of the problems outlined above I guess we’d still be there arguing the toss! Which just goes to show how sensible fell/ hill  runners are.
