What a week for Sophie Noon- after a cracking run on Saturday coming 13th Lady in the combined English and British Championships in Buttermere, Cumberland Fell Runner Sophie has been selected to represent England at the Snowdon International Mountain Race.
Thanks to all who turned up and supported the race today. I hope you enjoyed yourselves.
Clearly an awful lot of people were involved and I am sure that I speak for all runners in saying thanks for all the work today. There are so many, forgive me not even starting to name names.
Provisional results are up. Follow the link below
A beautiful evening for CFR's Latterbarrow Loop - this year a CFR Championship race.
On the start line, there was a little history lesson of the River Man and River Belle trophies (donated by Irving Block). They were later awarded to CFR's Sophie Noon and local farmer George Crayston for being first male and female to sprint the 800m to the Calder River and "thrash" through it to get to the other side.
Keswick AC's fast-paced Lord's Seat race saw a huge CFR contingent, all vying for Championship points and an enjoyable mid-week evening out racing.
A lightning-fast trail pace saw Mark Likeman storm into Championship contention with a clear 1st place CFR position (and overall 7th) for the men. At the sharp end of the ladies, Sophie Noon collected a cool 100 CFR Championship points and was 2nd lady overall to Keswick's Hannah Horsburgh.
A great Coledale Horseshoe for the 3rd CFR Senior Champs race – some fantastic racing and impressive results.
A painful-looking tumble for Phil Archer near the end saw Rob Stein finish with the top spot. The resulting hospital visit means Phil needs a bit of recovery time – get well soon!
Thanks to all those who came and ran today. Hope you enjoyed the handicap / chase format.
Clearly, many people contributed to today. At a risk of missing someone out......
Big thanks to
Registration - John Fletcher, Ian Grimshaw, Anna Blackburn
Emergency first aid - Ian Grimshaw won the race to provide a plaster
