This was another busy fell running week with two races within 48 hours. Three hard-core runners tackled both of them with weary legs at Friday's Yar Tor Race. Wednesday saw 5 ORCs, Joe Lane, Tom Poland, Ian Ripper, Kate Wilson and Christine Fritsch, brave the hilly 5 mile route at the Neolith Fell Race, starting from Merrivale. The route starts with a long ascent to Great Mis Tor, and eventually after a few more hills finishes on a fast decent. No prices won this time other than the joy of being out on the moor.On Friday Joe Lane, Tom Poland and Christine Fritsch were joined by Charlie Temperley to compete at the Yar Tor Fell Race. This is a 4 mile route starting at Huccaby near Dartmeet incorporating 1000 feet of climbing up and over Sharp Tor and Yar Tor. Joe managed to beat Tom to the finish and grabbed 1st MV40, 8th overall. Tom came in 9th place and Charlie finished his first top 20 in 20th place. Christine ended up 1st FV40, which came a bit as a surprise.Next Fell Race in the series is Tavy Trio on 25th August. ... See MoreSee Less
