The North East’s Premier Fell Running Club Website by Merlin
The weather the weather the weather, registration opened at The Lion Blakey Ridge, our generous hosts, to drizzle and a chill breeze, almost as cold as when the scheduled event had to be cancelled earlier in March due to an untimely visit from the 'Beast from the East', though no snow this time. With the Three Peaks Fell Race the previous day and a number of local competing events, there was still a healthy turnout of 99 on the start line. Blakey Blitz with its two descents and one ascent on the outward leg and reverse on the return leg can catch the unwary on its final one mile ascent to the finish line. In the tale of the tape it was Stuart Grange of Yorks Knavesmire (photo) in 88 minutes 4 seconds who claimed victory, followed in by Tim Grimwood of Swaledale some 40 seconds later. Third across the line was regular Lancashire visitor Darren Fishwick of Chorley also claiming first veteran (MV45). First over the line from the local clubs was Stefan McLoughlin, NYMAC in 4th. In a strong MV50 category (6 finishers in the top 15) it was Ed Gamble of Cheshire (6th overall) to the fore. Annabel Mason, Wakefield Harriers eased to victory in the female race who was also awarded a meal voucher for The Lion, leading home Kim Spence of Valley Striders by just over 5 minutes.....(more) Thanks to all our helpers, race proceeds to support cancer charity.
