A bright autumnal day greeted the 86 competitors for the first counter in the Dave Parry Lets Run Winter Fell Race Series 2018/19, Lockton Limping. As a reminder of the importance to bring kit to every race, three competitors couldn't run as they couldn't meet the race organisers kit requirements. It was two returning runners who headed the race from the go, Harry Holmes, Pudsey and Bramley and Rory Stead, Aberdeen AAC. In the womens race Sandrine Fraisse Saddleworth Runners led off from Summer Series champion Kate Smith York Knavesmire. The undulating nature of the Lockton course meant some shuffling of the pack outside the leading five, though Harry went onto claim victory in a new course recourd of 45.03, some five minutes faster than 2015. Rory claimed second overall and first under 23 also beating the previous record, with Josh Abrook NYMAC in third. First veteran was Matt Machouki (V45) of Scarborough AC in sixth place. Esk Valley Fell Club claimed team victory with Tim Hill, Richard Clark, Lyndon Ashley and Dean Stockwell. Sandrine and Kate battled over race distance at the finish there was only 18 seconds between them. Kath Aspin of New Marske Harriers eased to third place. In the womens team competition Scarborough AC were led home by Nikki Carr supported by Sue Haslam and Hiede Coates. Thanks to Chris Roberts of York Knavesmire for organising and his team. Next year the Lockton Limping batten passes to Nicholas Cousins of Pickering AC. The second race of the winter series is Gormire Gamble on its new date 28 October 2018.
