The North East’s Premier Fell Club Website by Merlin
New Years Day and Great Ayton welcomed the fell running community for the 37th running of the Captain Cooks Races. Well done to the 449 senior finishers and the 56 juniors to complete their events. Safe to say thats a record turnout. Thank you to all the helpers on the day and in advance of the event and the Royal Oak for hosting registration. The Captain Cooks Fell Race held for 37th time has been run on every occasion by runner number one Graham Robinson of Pickering Running Club, a terrific achievement. This year marks the 50th anniversary of our governing body the Fell Running Association, it was formed on the 4th April 1970, this is the date of the first FRA meeting though also coincides with the Gisborough Three Tops Fell Race, first counter in English Fell Race Championships which we are hosting. The Captain Cooks Race had the honour of being the first counter in the FRA's 50@50 series, a year long celebration of 50 fell races starting on New Years Day and finishing with the Auld Land Syne on New Years Eve. Thanks to for providing our bespoke race numbers. And thanks to the Parry family, Kathryne, Olivia, Andrew and Anthony for their continuing support and help at fell races, we remember Dave Parry in the name of our winter and summer fell race series, his legacy of North Yorkshire Moors Fell Races and the great and diverse running achievements of its competitors past, present, young and old.
