Midgely Moor

Navigation and Route Choice is the name of the game at Midgley Moor. With a mostly unflagged course covering 5 miles and 400m elevation (approx.), runners are at liberty to find their own routes between 6 checkpoints dotted around the moor. In true fell running fashion this can make or break a race, something that was seen in abundance in Sunday’s race. Martin Howard of CVFR stormed ahead to win the race outright in 41:33, and Rowen Pymm of Saddleworth won the women’s race (24th overall) in 52:53. Paul Hobbs led the Todmorden charge with 4th place in 48:52, followed by Dom Leckie and Ricky Parrish who teamed up and climbed through the field into 13th and 15th place respectively. Tristan Langlois (pictured), Bob Halstead and Mark Whittaker all put in great performances in tough conditions.

Full Todmorden results:
Paul Hobbs – 4th – 48:52
Dom Leckie – 13th – 51:20
Ricky Parrish – 15th – 51:31
Tristan Langlois – 32nd – 53:20
