Ian Hodgson Relay | Ravenstones Brow Fell Race | Smarna Gora

Todmorden ladies fielded a team at the Ian Hodgson Relay on Sunday in the Lake District. The 25 mile route was split into four legs, that were run in pairs and misty conditions on the hilltops made for a challenging day of navigation.

The team were led off by Elise Milnes and Kath Brierley, followed by a strong performance on leg 2 by Sarah May and Gemma Kendall where difficult conditions meant several teams went astray.

Mandy Goth and Sue Roberts navigated their way through the checkpoints perfectly with almost zero visibility at times.

Lucy Burnett and Cath Shanley rounded the day off to take the ladies into 7th place.

On Saturday a trio of Harriers took on the Ravenstones Brow Fell Race at Greenfield, in unseasonably hot and sunny conditions.

James Riley completed the 9 mile course in 17th in a time 1:38:43, with Mick Craven a couple of minutes further back in 20th place.

Lucy Hobbs finished 5th lady, and 36th overall, in a time of 1:50:35.

Lauren Jeska travelled to Slovenia for the Smarna Gora mountain race, which was the final round of the WMRA Grand Prix.

Lauren’s 7th place took her to 4th place in the series overall as she narrowly missed out on a medal.
