A bit disappointing not to have any Ilkley teams in this (let's do better at Wasbburn!), but Dave Wilby's red and green vest finished in 19.32 for the 'Crow Lane Crocks', and Dave Tait ran with some V60 chums in 24.44

Morgan Williams reports on ... Marathon du Mont Blanc, 42 kms and ascent of 2511 metres. This race was a stepping stone on my way to the start line of the CCC in late August, which is a little longer! I wanted it to be hot. It was, though the first hour after the 7.00 am start was relatively civilized. I wanted to go steady, which I did after Vallorcine, which I reached much too quickly, but at least I realized this and slowed up. I didn’t eat or drink enough, but at only 42 kms, you feel like you can push through without taking too much care of yourself. There will be no such luxury in the CCC. The temperature must have been in the mid-30s by the time I finished at around 2.30 pm. The race accepted 2,000 entries. This is too many for the course to bear; on the main descent around 3/5ths distance, there were queues on the trickier sections. 1,500 entries would be a better number. I had no interest in time or finishing position, this was a training run, and a very decent one. Seven and a half hours of hot trail endeavour was perfect. Even better was the 2 and a bit days we spent on the CCC course after a day’s rest, walking and running over the 100 km course in around 23 hours. Alison finished over an hour in front of me, very respectably, in 6.27, for 6th LV40.
Mark Mon-Williams reports I had my first decent run for many years but had the very depressing experience of being in third place from about the first mile, easing off over the last two miles as there was no one in sight, only to have someone fly past me on the high street as I was ambling along hoping to leave something in my legs for Thursday's league race (which didn't work anyway!) - Results

Well done to Tom on his win! And good to see Eric returning to racing.
Clare Smith reports ...
There was fun for all the family at this friendly low-key event. The
weather was a little warm for my liking and the turnout of runners wasn't
high, possibly because of the heat! The traditional village gala itself
was well attended which meant that there was plenty of support for the
runners who left the field accompanied by the tunes of the brass band,
after an initial false start which I presume was because the road hadn't
been cleared of traffic. The 3 mile jaunt took us to the trig point on
Baildon Moor and ended with a sting in its tail- an uphill climb across
the field to the finish. It was great to hear a few shouts of 'Come on
Ilkley' on the way round, and Tom Adams did us proud by finishing 1st.
There was also a variety of junior races, including a 1 mile trail for the U10s, U12s and U14s.

Amanda Parnaby reports ... on an East Yorks LDWA event from The Buddhist Centre, Kilnwick Percy Hall near Pocklington. 25 miles but once again added a bit extra due to taking a slight detour en route. A very hilly route on an extremely warm day but a welcome breeze on the top of the Wolds. Finished in 6 hrs 29 mins.

Update from Jamie Hutchinson .... Starting Saturday 19th June at 4pm and sailing from Wales to Scotland via the Lakes, running up Snowden, Scafell and Ben Nevis ... We did it finishing at just 10pm on Thursday night. An epic race that will live in the memory. I think we did a fair job of the running and cycling. We were 4th placed on Snowden and Scafell and beaten into 2nd on Ben Nevis by one minute! The race was won by last year’s winner EAD Innovation works in a total time of 96 hours 37 minutes, which included a significant amount of rowing!! Our team Sigi Mae (Sailors: Phil, Hugh, Ed and Runners: Jamie & Brian) finished 13th in 125 hours 45 minutes out of 23 participants. The total run/cycle time of the winning team was 14 hours 4 minutes compared to our time of 14 hours 48 minutes.
Run times: Snowden (from Caernvon and back) 4th, 4h10 (fastest 3h40) Scafell (from Whitehaven, cycling to Ennerdale) 4th, 7h27 (fastest 7h09) Snowden (from Corpach) 2nd, 3h11 (fastest 3h10)
A good turnout of Harriers last night for this friendly local race, read
If you liked Beamsley, or if you missed it and like the sound of running up this lovely hill, you'll like our

Thanks to everyone for coming and making it such a great evening.
Henry Heavisides reports on ... the British Masters 5k road race in Horwich. Sally Morley was second lady in the race & 2nd F35,
which is a great performance in a National championship. Geoff Howard won bronze medal in the M65 category and set a new
Club record for V60 and V65. We narrowly missed a medal for the
M50 team in a very competitive team race.
Individual results were:

Peter Shields reports ... Mike Picken and I went into Lancashire today to have a go at the oldest half marathon in the country at Freckleton, situated between Preston and Blackpool. Reports said it was flat, don't you believe it! Undulating would be a better term. The weather was hot, infact hot enough to melt the tar on the roads, PB's were out of the question. The locals of Freckleton and its environs certainly did the racers proud by putting their water hoses on sprinkle to cascade us with water as we ran, there were hundreds of them. The race itself was extremely well organised with rucksacks to all finishers. Peter Shields came in 124 and first v60 in 1.40.20 and Mike Picken ran really well in the heat to finish 353 in 2.02.13
Gaenor Coy reports ... myself and team Tate, consisting of Jill (swim) John (bike) and Brit (run) took part in this event on Sunday morning. Starting from Allerthorpe Lakeland Park, it consisted of a 750m technical swim in a big muddy puddle, 20k bike over a very flat and windy course and a flat out and back 5K run. Enjoyable event.

Andrew Bennett reports ... Alison and I took part in this 5 mile fell race which starts off in the Quernmore valley just outside Lancaster and goes up to the top of Clougha Pike. Lots of variety with field, fell and crag to negotiate. Alison came in 53 in 50.03 with me in at 62 in 54.13.
John Marshall was 107th in 25.07 at Leeds.
Richard Hinsley was 19th in 25:000 at the Bradford run in Lister Park.
A Magnificent 43 Harriers turned out for the 4th race in the League, over a revised course at Nidd Valley. The Male Vets and (mixed) SuperVets continued their winning streak, but the main team competition was incredibly close - we were 3rd but not too many points adrift against some pretty determined opposition. And the ladies made a welcome return to form with a good win in the Lady Vets team competition and 2nd place in the Ladies team comp. The final League counter is in 2 weeks at Swaledale. Every race counts in the team competition. And the 'famous for its chips' pub has re-opened! So mark the date in your diaries - Thursday 1 July! Results and photos on www.harrogate-league.org.uk.

A great turnout of 36 Harriers at the annual Mob Match against Bingley Harriers. Tom Adams won the race for the second year, against some quality opposition including Karl Gray and Ian Nixon. Strong 'good for age' performances from Ilkley meant we beat Bingley for the third year in a row in the Mob Match (Mob Match Rules). The race and supper raised over £500 for Riding for the Disabled.

Henry Heavisides reports ... It was warm, dry & sunny in Long Eaton today for the 5 mile race. The course is fast & flat, with the winner, Bruce Raeside from Notts AC running 23:55, which is one of the top 10 fastest 5 mile times in the UK this year. I did 29:42 to win the M55 prize. Unusually, free beer was on offer (as much as you could drink), whilst waiting for the prize giving.... unfortunately I was driving home so couldn't take advantage. (This is a Club M50 & M55 record.)
Amanda Parnaby reports ... a new event - not sure of the origin of the name. 23 miles from Dacre Village Hall in the form of a figure of eight around the Summerbridge and Pateley Bridge area, although everybody seemed to have added around an extra couple of miles due to problems with the route description. Enjoyable if rather hilly, taking in Brimham Rocks, Yorke Folly, Ashfield Beck and Waterfall and Braithwaite Moors. Excellent and plentiful food at the finish. Completed in 6 hrs 7 mins.
Dave Wilby reports ... Ennerdale, one of the wildest of the Lakeland valleys, where the only permanent residents are of the 4 legged
or feathered variety, and home to the magnificent, and brutally tough, fell race. The greats of the sport have all raced here, and this year the
incredible record winning time belonging to Kenny Stuart was 25 years old. This one quite rightly sits amongst the 'Lakeland Classics', and for the
English Championships on Saturday, the weather more than played its part in showing off the course in all its majestic beauty. It's not often I actually
stop when I'm racing, but the view from the top of Pillar was more than enough to stop me in my tracks for a few seconds, the whole of the Lake District
laid out before me, with views across to Scotland.
There was a fantastic turnout of Harriers. Given how tough the course was, I think the attendance deserves a special mention. Everyone put in a very brave shift to get round the course not just in one piece, but in very respectable times, and a special mention should go to Steve Turland for a magnificent run to take his first ever championship points, and Tracey Greenway for finishing 6th lady & 1st FV45. Well done everyone.

Report from Alison Weston ... I would just like to add to Dave's account of the day. Ilkley Harriers men were brilliant! Eleven men completed one of the hardest fell races on the calender. It was great to see so many Harrier's vests in a Championship event. Most of the Cumbrian clubs did not field as many. Dave and Steve did exceptionally well and Nick and Graham received prizes for their age categories. It was Duncan's first long Lakeland race and he ran it in a really good time. We were a bit lacking in numbers for the female Harriers but Tracey easily secured her V45 lead in the English Championships.
Richard Hinsley was 32nd in 26.38
Jim & Lyn report ... from Pendle Hill. 4 Mile, 1100ft of climb. New course from last year doing away with all the road section. This made it a lovely descent off Pendle.
Jim Towers 41.20
Jim & Lyn report ... a lovely 5 mile fell race with 1800ft of climb of the fells between Kettlewell and Arncliffe. Pity there were only 30 runners as it is a lovely run, and after a cloudy day the sun came out during the race lighting up the whole of the valley.

Dave Wilby reports ... there were 4 Harriers taking part in the 'Old Man' triathlon on Sunday, a race which in its 2nd year,
and can quite possibly lay claim to being the toughest triathlon in the country. It all kicks off with a 2km swim in Coniston Water, and is followed by a
70km road biking leg which takes the willing rider (and their not so willing legs) over Wrynose Pass (25%), Hardknott Pass (30%), Birker Fell & Kirby Moor.
The cherry on the cake is a fell run which in the style of the Coniston Fell Race, takes in Wetherlam, Swirl How & Coniston Old Man (hence the name of the race)
for a total climb of 3500ft. Unlike the fell race though, it starts from the campsite so there's an extra 3 miles of running for a total of 12 miles.
Jonathan & Helene Whittaker were taking part in the relay option, and their respective teams finished 2nd & 3rd, a great effort and both looked very impressive descending off the Old Man. I was flying on the bike and was making a good push for the front of the solo race when with 15 miles to go, a large and unexpected bang signalled the end of my rear tyre and my race, gutted! Luckily I managed to hitchike my way back to the event centre before the rain came in. Kelly meanwhile was having a great battle at the head of the ladies race, and after leading out of the swim, was a close 2nd going in to the final transition. Impressively she'd conquered her biggest demons (Wrynose & Hardknott) in fine style, and still had enough energy left for some banter with a couple of guys who had been forced to push. Out on to the run and the weather was starting to close in but she pushed on well. Despite a slight detour coming off Swirl How (a popular error given the route was entirely unmarked, and the paper maps that had been distributed had all but disintegrated in the worsening conditions), she made it to the top of the Old Man with the 1st lady in sight, and promptly set the fastest descent time for any solo (male or female) to open up a winning margin, and come home an excellent 6th overall in 6hrs 47mins.
All in all an excellent course, and a grand day out in the Lakes. The usual complimentary event tee shirt or mug was replaced with an Exped waterproof rucksack, so value for money was for once very high from a triathlon. Recommended as a real challenge, but leave the fancy time trial bike at home!!
From Bob Wightman ... there was a smattering of Harriers at the Newfield Inn in the Duddon Valley
for both the long (18m/6000ft) and short(11m/3000ft) races. The long race is one of the classic Lakeland events, reckoned to be harder than the
Borrowdale race but easier than the Wasdale (but then what isn't easier than the Wasdale?!)
Having not raced since the Wasdworth Trog in February in a moment of madness brought on by the heat I had entered the long race, it was going to be a trial by oven. Just over 180 grouped up on the start line for the mandatory inaudible safety instructions and then we were off. The initial part of the race is on a good track before heading through forestry and out on to Harter Fell, at least on the fell you had a breeze to help cool you. Morgan was about a minute ahead at this point with Jonathan somewhere in the multicoloured dots in the distance that I assumed were runners. A long fast stretch to the summit of Hardknott Pass then up to the next checkpoint before a big descent in to Moasdale and the biggest climb of the day up the inappropriately named Little Stand. I caught Morgan up just before the checkpoint then somehow got past him on the long traverse to the Three Shires Stone.
In common with the other Lakeland long races the Duddon has cutoff times at each checkpoint but I was nearly an hour inside the time. Things were looking OK. Except they weren't - almost immediately after leaving the Three Shires I began to feel sick and the long drag up to Swirl How seemed to take an age, even on the flat and downhills I was having to walk an increasing amount of the route as my right knee was beginning to lock up. It didn't help that I had lost the group I had been running with so there was no pressure to keep up with anyone. Water offered by a spectator near the Dow Crag checkpoint helped and the long grassy run out to White Pike was helped by trying to keep up with the runner that had just passed me. A good line on the descent from White Pike was negated by having to walk the rest of the way to the final checkpoint on Caw. Unbeknownst to me, Morgan was now rapidly gaining time on me and we passed on the out and back to the checkpoint. It was the spur to try and run to the finish where the boggiest bit of the course awaited just outside the finishing field. I finished just outside my target of 5hrs. Pint needed!
The short race was won by Jamie Luxmoore of Keswick Athletic Club in 1:36:53

From Jez Hellewell ... Had a fantastic day up in the Dales for this great event. It's the first time that I've run it & I'm glad I did. The weather was hot, but not uncomfortable. But the route is beautiful. Taking in Kettlewell, Kilnsey, Hawkswick, Arncliffe & Malham Tarn. It was difficult to watch where you were going at times as the views were stunning. There were a couple (I think) of Harriers doing the half (including Johnathan Sinclair) & three (I think !) doing the full, Including Russell Thomas & Ewan Welsh. It seemed a small field for the full, which might explain how I managed to come joint 6th in 3h41.46. Apologies if I missed any Harriers. Results From SportIdent:

Amanda Parnaby came in 1st female (3.04) and 2nd overall at the Wharfedale Rugger Ramble, run withh this event.
From Ewan ... Following on from Jez's report I have to agree his sentiments towards the race, it's a great race to have on your doorstep and one in which I would aim to do on an annual basis. However, unlike Jez, I suffered in the heat, the last time i felt like that was the last time I ran a long distance race in the heat (funnily enough). Last year this was one of my better runs, in comparison with this year I would say I went from the sublime to the ridiculous, finishing an hour later and somewhat overheated. It didn't take away the enjoyment of the day out and the opportunity to soak up a few rays ! When I staggered over the finish line Kitty, the eldest daughter came running up and asked why I'm so slow......kids, they say the funniest things !
Graham Arthur's story ... I was 44th in 4:28:12, 1st V60 (and V55) but wore a sleeved top due to the intense sunshine, so Jez would not have realised. I collapsed with heat exhaustion at the end, due to having been pushed to race the last four miles against another V60 from Borrowdale, and could not stand up for 15 minutes. Some thought I was dead. It was a case of who cracked first. 82 started, 75 finished.
From Steve Turland ... 5.9m, 1650ft. Run in very hot conditions. Results were:
1 47:46 Craig Roberts (Kendal) 13 54:28 Steve Turland 79 71:19 Andrew Snell
Jim & Lyn report ... 3.4miles, 700ft of climb. Finally ran this race after wanting to do it for many years, but it always clashes with the Duddon Valley Fell Races. Having run both Duddon Valley long and short races over the years decided finally to run Kelbrook. It was well worth the wait. A lovely little fellrace with a Gala in the main field, and easy parking. A lovely day, a bit hot, but beautiful views from the top. A tough ascent but a beautiful descent with a small uphill sting in the tail at the end.
Jim Towers 32.08 Lyn Eden 43.26
Rob Cunningham was 8th in 19.48
This was the third race in the series, and another tough one, on a revised course starting in Yeadon and looping through Esholt. There was a really good turnout of Harriers in most classes, and another main team win - 2 in a row! The main team competition is very close now with regular winners Harrogate and Otley within our sights. Strong team wins again from the men's vets teams and the mixed supervets teams, consolidating our overall lead in those classes.

From Fiona Schneider ... a hot 17 km course over the undulating trail in beautiful countryside. I finished in 2.06.13, nearly an hour behind the leader and way behind the only other Harrier I saw. Apologies I cannot find her in the results. www.lakelandtrails.org for details of 2 further events this year.
Mike Baldwin was 70th in 36.06
