The North East’s Premier Fell Running Club Website by Merlin
It Another great night of fell running at the fifth counter in the Dave Parry/Northern Runner Summer Fell Race Series, Gribdale Gallop 2017. Thanks to Bob Lillie, Malcolm Peggs and Dave Aspin for running the event. 145 made the start line, 60 of whom were running their first race in the summer series. It was Harry Holmes, Pudsey and Bramley, back in the area for a stop-off , who set out hard building a lead before Roseberry Common, the battle for second started out between Paul Lowe, NYMAC, Paul Lowe, Darlington Harriers and Sam Garratt, New Marske.  Confusing I know! we have a few runners with the same name, though not often two runners the same capability and battling for the lead!   In the end it was NYMAC Vet Paul Lowe showing he is still a force to be reckoned with on the fell (despite being beat over 5K by young Archie Lowe recently) coming 2nd with Darlington Harriers Paul Lowe 3rd closed behind.  New Marskes Sam Garratt was 4th as he returns to fitness. Mens team prize went to York Knavesmire packing well with, Gareth Green 5th, Thomas Ratcliffe 8th, Giles Hawkings 12th and Barry Atkinson 13th. In a strong ladies race it was ebb and flow between Aisling Wall (photo), Pudsey and Bramley, Alison Matthews (photo), Darlington Harriers and Kay Neesam, New Marske.......
