Club Championship Update – Fellrunning Section.

Well the fell club championship is hotting up and with only one race remaining, the Full Tour of Pendle on the 23rd November, the prizes in each category are still up for grabs.

In the overall senior mens club champion category it is currently a three horse race between Capt. Motley, Mike Wallis & Dave Edmondson. Can Msrs Wallis & Edmondson come back from injury to stop the Captain?

The V40 category sees Dave Edmondson and Mike Wallis competing for top spot, but if they don’t make the race then the V40 Championship is blown wide open for the taking and Chris Balderson, Neil Hardiman, Paul Hesketh & Pete Booth are waiting in the wings.


The V50 category sees Mike Wallis with a lead that cannot be caught, however if Mr Wallis doesn’t make the race then Pete Booth & Ivan Whigham have excellent chances of becoming V50 champion.

The V60’s looks to be Pete Booth’s for the taking, however Jeff Pickup, Donald McCallum & Doug Munroe have chances of a podium finish.

With some fantastic performances on the fells this year the ladies championship is being lead by Capt. Jean Brown with the likely podium finishers being between Juliet Horrocks, Barbara Savage, Linda Lord & Irene Roche.

With all the awards and podium finishes still up for grabs the Full Tour of Pendle could be a cracker. Get your pre-entry in as soon as possible as this is one not to miss!
