We fielded 2 teams (amongst 20) in the inaugural running of this event, 5 legs of 7.5-10 miles run in pairs.
Our men's team got off to a great start with Jim Ryder and Mark Iley finishing 3rd, just a few minutes behind Abbey Runners, in
1h21.41. Phil Chappell and Iain Mann gained the lead at one stage, and held on for a good 3rd place by the end of the
leg in 1h24.56.
Lloyd Best and Richard Gray carried the baton on to Silsden where they handed over to Neil Chapman and Morgan Williams in
4th place, 1h13.55.
Neil and Morgan ran on to White Wells in 1h24.02; and Ian Marshall and Rob Pawson ran the final leg to Bingley in 1h27.11. Overall, the men's team finished 6th in 6h51.40, less than a minute behind Pudsey Pacers and only 25 minutes down on the winners, Wakefield.
Our ladies team ran the men very close on many of the legs, to finish 10th overall and winning the Ladies team prize.
They got off to a strong start with Alison Bennett and Cath Wolfenden, 1h33.05. On Leg 2 we saw the welcome return to racing of
Sally Malir, and with Julie Harvey she ran a strong leg only slightly less fast than Phil and Iain (1h26.07) and finishing
a very creditable 9th overall. Shirley Wood and Karen Page made short work of leg 3 (but too much road, said Shirley) -
1h18.42. Emma Barclay was a valuable late substitute on leg 4, running well with Joyce Marshall - 1h36.39.
And Alison Crane and Jane Leather stormed the last leg in 1h30.13

Alison Weston reports ...21M, 5,500' climb. A very friendly, low key event with no marshals or flagging but electronic punching at inconspicuous controls. There were probably only around 50 runners. I took 3hrs 34 and came in 1st lady with Wendy Dodds (we'd ran such a lot of the way together that it didn't feel right to have a last 100m sprint at the end!). Anna Liuba and Ashley Hardwell stayed together and had a good run in 4hr 17 (Anna 5th lady).
Eddie Winslow and Adrian Hall were 5th team in Saturday's Salomon X Adventure race in a strong field (42 teams). In 8 hours they managed over 100kms of mountain biking, some abseiling and 3km of canoeing around Edale.

9 Ilkley Harriers (a Mens and a Ladies team), plus supporters, travelled to fair Melrose for the Eildon Two Hills race,
4.5M with 1500' of climb, and a counter in the British Fell Championship.
The ladies raced first, and despite a stomach bug Andrea Priestley dragged them around the Gala field and up onto the fell. Straining to see the race from below, it seemed that Louise Sharp - with whom Andrea is neck and neck in the British Championship - seemed to take the lead up the hill. But Andrea ran in for a final lap of Melrose Rugby Club with Sara Carson on her heels and Louise back in 4th place. Andrea's time was 32.39. This win should put Andrea into the lead in the British Fell Champs, but if Louise wins the final race at Y Garn then they will share the Championship. In either case, Ilkley Harriers has a British Fell Champion!
In the men's race, Jim Ryder was first male Harrier home in 77th place 33.13 (the race was won by Lochaber's John Brooks in 26.51, beating Ian Holmes). Mike Baldwin was 92nd in 33.34; Geoff Howard 94th in 33.46; Ewan Welsh 124th in 36.46; and Paul Wood 128th in 37.09
Many of us stayed up for the weekend, and enjoyed a social meal on Saturday evening - thanks to Ewan for organising an enjoyable weekend.Click here for photos
Suzanne Akeroyd recorded a good time of 3h25, considering the windy conditions, as did Richard Midgley with 3h45
Ian Marshall was 31st in 70:20 in this 8M navigational(?) race,
results and more on Ogden Water web site.
Some of the hardier Harriers competed in the Lowe Alpine Mountain Marathon at "Braes of Balquhidde" at the weekend.
We had two teams in the 'B' class, Rob King and his partner were 40th team in 13h44m over the two days; and from the results it looks
like Ashley Hardwell and Anna Liuba missed a few controls in the terrible weather conditions.
"The low cloudbase and torrential downpours meant that views over Loch Lomond were limited, but most were too busy trying to keep their footing on the slippery ground to notice."

Vic's birthday was duly celebrated in Aussie style with a 'Barbi', but alas with English-style rain. Many of those present had enjoyed a long, soggy Sunday run on the moors above Embsay and Eastby and thoroughly deserved the excellent tucker. Thanks to Vic and family.
Andrea Priestley was first lady, and 5th overall, in this Scottish race - 8 miles and 2400' ascent. With a time of 77.42 she only narrowly missed the record (77.03 set 2 years ago in a Scottish Champs race) - a good time given the atrocious conditions.

Thanks to Skyrac's Graham Breeze for these results.
Eddie Winslow and Adrian Hall took part in the Salomon, X-Adventure GB Series 1 day adventure race at Machynlleth, Wales.
A maximum of eight hours was allowed for this score competition based mainly on mountain biking with abseiling, canoeing,
canyoning and running stages. Thirty one mixed teams of three set off and Team "Ont Moor" (Eddie, Adrian, and Astrid
Wheatcroft) came 5th after 46 miles of biking with 280 points in 7hr 46mins.
The result was mainly a result of Eddie's superb navigation and route choice. A few teams dropped out with heat exhaustion and dehydration - it was a tad hot! Strangely, some teams came in about 2 hours late and accumulated nearly 2000 penalty points! (only 10 teams finished with a positive number of points).
Eddie and Adrian's team were only beaten by four professionally sponsored teams- not bad for their first event in this series. They are doing the next two events in the Peak District and the north east.

11 first-claim Ilkley Harriers (a Mens, a Ladies and a Men’s Vet teams) competed in the Duddon Valley British and
English Championships’ fell race in the Lake District. Championship rules require individuals and teams to compete in at
least one long category A race such as Duddon (20 miles with 6,000 feet of ascent). Although the hot windless conditions
suited navigation and mobility they also presented a high risk of dehydration and cramp.
Mike Baldwin also discovered a third risk in the form of grassy slopes, wet from the recent rain, resulting in a slip, his scalp being gashed by a rock and enforced retiral from the race. Fortunately after teatment he declared himself to be OK. The Harriers’ performance of the day was that of Alison Weston, coming in seventh lady, with all the other Harriers’ completing this very demanding event which had a record entry: Geoff Howard 93rd (3hr 58min 03secs); Nick Pearce 102nd (4:02:26); Alison Weston 103rd (4:03:56); Jim Ryder 123rd (4:12:04); Dominic O’Hooley 136th (4:19:39); Mark Iley 150th (4:28:12); Rachael Gooch 165th (4:38:38); Ashley Hardwell 168th (4:39:23); Jane Leather 184th (5:09:54); and Anna Luiba 185th (5:09:59).
Second claim Harrier Jason Hemsley came in 24th for Pudsey & Bramley (3:21:01) with Simon Booth of Borrowdale the race winner (2:49:05) and Louise Sharp of Keswick first lady (3:28:46).

Andrea Priestley was selected to run for GB in the first event in the
World Mountain Running Association's Grand Prix 2002 at Grabs, Switzerland.
In an uphill race with a fair bit of road running Andrea was 9th in 56.55.

Tim Ashelford was 3rd in 1h.48 min (3m run, 22m bike, 3 mile run in cold wet conditions).
There can't be many tougher 3.5 mile races than this in the calendar. This is only the second running of this race, and
it attracted a good field as it was the Yorkshire Championships. The race was run in bright and breezy conditions. Perhaps unusually for a
fell race there was great spectator support, at White Wells. The race was won by Bingley's John Taylor in 27.54
There were good runs from all the Harriers competing: Jim Ryder 9th in 31.22; Andy Wade making a rare appearance on the fells 14th in 33.00; Dave Cheesewright 15th in 33.05; Mike Baldwin 18th in 33.12 (1st Vet45); Ewan Welsh 28th in 34.41; Iain Mann 30th in 34.49; Emma Barclay 31st and 2nd lady in 34.52; Pete Shields 39th in 35.43; Alison Weston 46th in 36.21 (4th lady); Ashley Hardwell 49th in 46.33; Johanne Kerr 56th in 38.15; Alison Crane 60th in 39.02; and then Morgan Williams 63rd in 39.21; Steve Cockerham 64th in 29.25 and Clare Cheesewright 65th in 39.26.
Second-claim Harriers Jason Hemsley and Stefan Macina and Kirstin Bailey were well to the fore: 2nd in 28.54; 4th in 29.15; and 23rd and first lady in 34.09

a quality field as this was the third counting race in the English fell championships; good organisation; and all on a
The ladies’ race was run first, allowing us all to do some spectating. Every Ilkley Harrier who ran counted (thanks for running Pete!) Our ladies team were 7th (Emma Barclay 12th 26.07, Alison Weston 16th 27.04, and Joanna Foster 38th 30.53); and our men’s team were about 14th (Jim Ryder 80th 23.44, Nick Pearce 85th 23.51; Norman Bush 116th 25.14, Paul Wood 140th 26.53, and Pete Shields 144th in 27.10). Sadly we were one runner short of a male vets’ team.
(After the previous 2 races in the English Champs, we were 3rd in the ladies team event, 10th in the male Vet-40 event, and 7th in the male Vet-50 event).

There was a top class field for this 9 mile AM fell race with 3,500' of climb, as it was a counter in both the
English and the British Fell Championships. And there was a great turnout of Harriers. On a fantastic sunny day, Bingley's
Ian Holmes was first home in 1:06:02. First Lady (and first Harrier, in 64th place overall) was Andrea Priestley in a storming 1:21:01 (just 10s
outside the record!) and that placing takes her into the lead in both the English and British Fell Championships.
Next Harrier was Nick Pearce 115th in 1:25:49; then Mark Iley 123rd in 1:26:44; Jim Ryder 168th in 1:33:10; Geoff Howard 177th in 1:34:35; Alison Weston 194th and 13th lady in 1:36:03; 244th Emma Barclay 1:39:57 (19th lady, and helping us to a good team place); 277th Norman Bush in 1:44:29; 289th Rachael Gooch in 1:46:08; 296th Jane Leather 1:47:33; 314th Joyce Marshall in 1:49:45; 318th Ian Marshall 1:49:56; and Jo Foster 364th in 1:58:45. Over 400 ran, with a record ladies field.
Other friends seen included Jason Hemsley well to the fore; Malcolm Pickering (just behind Nick?); Kirstin Bailey 157th in 1:31:22; Helen Johnson chasing Kirstin hard (and just pipping Kirstin on the line).

Neil Chapman and Keith Wood battled against the weather to finish in 3:25 and 3:36 respectively; while in the Half Marathon Billy Kerr ran 1:20:30 and Ewan Welsh 1:30
One of the toughest races in the fell calendar, over 24 miles with 4500' of climb taking in
Pen-y-ghent, Whernside, and Ingleborough Hill, it was even more so this year with "absolutely awful" weather.
Mike Baldwin finished 48th in 3:59 - a magnificent result and his top-50 place getting him automatic entry for next year.
