British Fell & Hill Relays, Middleton.19th October  2014.

CRR fielded a V40 team for this years British Fell and Hill Relays, held in Middleton, Cumbria. The event was hosted by Dallam running club and Howgill Harriers  in a relatively unknown part of Cumbria.

The team met up for an early start with a 2 hr drive over to the South Lakes. Registration was a straight forward affair followed by some hot tea, bacon butties and a little banter with some of our local neighbours, Eryri Harriers,  Denbigh Harriers and our arch rivals Buckley Runners.

Out first for CRR was Dan Hurst on leg 1, coming in 15th in the V40 cat. A quick handover in the pen and it was over to team leader Jim Davis and Greame Peacock to take up the race for CRR. The lads returned just under the 2 hr mark  with a brilliant time of 1:57:18.

Next was the navigation leg with Chris Wilcox and Steve Jones setting of into the unknown. Returning safely in 1:29:10 it was over to John Montgomery for the final leg.

Overall the team came in an overall position of 20th in V40, with over 200 teams competing in all categories.


Leg 1 was 5.4 miles with 1,648 feet of ascent

Leg 2 was 9 miles, with 2,559 feet of ascent

Leg 3 was 7.7 miles, with 1,659 feet of ascent

Leg 4 was 5.6 miles, with 1,722 feet of ascent

Brocken marathon in Harz mts, Germany. 11th October 2014.


CRR was represented for the first time in the 37th running of the Brocken marathon in Harz mts, Germany by Paul Oldfield. ‘ Okay, so it was just me but there was a bit of recognition of our club when the welsh bit on the running vest was spotted by a Danish runner as she zipped past, which was nice’.  The Brocken is 1145m high, the sam-ish as Snowdon, and I was made to feel very much at home due to the very familiar levels of low cloud, mist and clagg as often found around our parts, although the Harz has, allegedly, more trees.

Tim Higginbottom had a great result in the first ‘lakes in a day’ race on Saturday, winning in 10.5 hours by only 4 minutes! The route was 50 miles and 4100 metres climb, a journey on foot from the very top of the Lake District at Caldbeck to the very bottom, at Cartmel, via the stunning Helvellyn Ridge and the western shoreline of Lake Windermere. With over 200 people racing it was no mean feat. The longest time taken was just under 24 hours.
