Last weekend saw Julian and Jenny both racing at the West Yorkshire Winter League- closed results.
This weekend saw the Barlick contingent racing at the Mid-Lancs cross country; Luke led the group home in 20th place 35:44, I was a ‘few’ places behind (120th place) in 42:42, and Scott threw down the challenge to me on the start line, but then slipped and lost a shoe on lap one resulting in 160th place and 45:15.
A few of the team were out racing this weekend:
Luke Maude was part of the Barlick mixed fell relay squad who had an amazing run to finish 1st beating 15 other mixed teams and finishing 44th overall:
44 – Barnoldswick Mighty Mixed – 5:01:31
Leg 1 – Sarah Tipler – 29:13
Leg 2 – Angela Donlan & Jen Hird – 1:53:25
Leg 3 – Ian Beresford & Andy Berry – 1:54:23
Leg 4 – Luke Maude – 44:30
Julian Hood won the SLJ memorial 10Mile multi-terrain race with a 2min pb on that course despite slippy conditions.
Scott Boardman – The master of the negative split… despite being ill with a cold (who hasn’t been ill these past few weeks!!) managed a 96:56
Langdale horseshoe fell race:
25th place- Luke Maude 2.16.58
Vernon’s 4mile road race
16th Scott Boardman 25:82 ( including a 5K personal best time of 19:20)
Lakes in a Day:

Race round up 3rd Oct:
Joe Horne – ticking the UTMB/CCC points box with a 11th place at round Ripon Ultra, 35miles in 5:49:53 (same time as 10th place). Nice warm up for next weekends 50miler 😉
Luke Jezza Maude and Julian Hood teamed up as part of the Ian Hodgson Fell Relays for Barlick Fell Runners, they pulled the team back from 20th to 13th place on leg 2, but the team then slipped back to 20th.
Me! Suffered round the first cross country of the season. Didn’t take my own advice on warm up and remembered how much these short races hurt! Bring on 50miles on Saturday instead!
Good to catch up with Helen Leigh and Christina Singleton who also had a run out at the cross country despite not in structured training at the moment.
