Barlick Fell Runners - Reports

pendleside_logoIn the past month, Barlick members have raised over £1,000 for this local charity.  The first money raising event was the Man v Bike race up Salterforth Drag.  This raised £430 on the night, but money kept money kept flowing in for it.  It had reached £500 when the above picture was taken for the press and was £600 by the time the money was handed over.

At the Kelbrook Fell Race, the sale of Cakes and Ale raised a further £67.

In the meantime, Tom Corrigan took part in the Trail Blaster event and managed to raise over £400 from his 12 hour challenge, bring the total to nearly £1,100 for this worthy cause.

This must be one of those annoying courses that favours junior runners.  There were two in front of Screw, one of them being in 2nd place overall and Angela was actually 1st senior woman, but unfortunately for her, again, two juniors managed to skip home in front of her, the first home being an FU14!

Richard Treitl again entered this race and knocked 7 minutes off his time last year.  He puts this down to better weather (hot and humid last year, wet and windy this year) and in knowing what to expect in terms of terrain and severity of the ascents.
