Bridestone Fell Race, 26 Jun
Report by Lucy Hobbs
Last Tuesday seven Todmorden Harriers took part in the local Bridestones Fell Race organised by Tod Harrier Dan Taylor. All proceeds went to a local play group based at the Fielden Centre. It is a short, 4.7 mile race involving 1230 foot of climb up to the Bridestones above Todmorden. The ground was dry and soft, and apart from a steep descent through gorse, was perfect running conditions. Andy Payne of Calder valley won in 37.12 and first Harrier was Duncan Canon in 40:46, 9th overall. Tristian Langlois was 13th in 43:10 and closely followed by Rebecca Patrick, who continues to build on her fine form, in 44:33, 15th overall and first lady. Strong performances were made by Kath Brierley 28th (50:08 ) and 2nd V50. Derek Donohue was 32nd (51:18) followed by Robin Gray 33rd (51:21). Jane Leonard was 35th in 51:42.
