David Staff Memorial Fell Race

Todmorden Harriers were in attendance at the David Staff Memorial Fell Race in Darwen at the weekend. The 5 mile race climbed out of Sunnyhurst Woods, then up and around Darwen Tower, before a descent back to the woodland finish.

The ground was muddy underfoot after heavy overnight rain, and together with strong winds meant for slower than usual going for the 177 runners except for race winner Ben Fish of Blackburn Harriers who was over two minutes clear by the finish.

Marcel Ellison was the first Harrier to finish in 41st position, followed by Simon Galloway in 74th place.

Kath Brierley posted a time of 47:35 to finish seventh lady and just twelve seconds behind first v50, Anne Ferguson of Burnden Road Runners.

Keith Parkinson was the next to finish, closely followed by Lucy Hobbs, 12th lady, and Chris Drinkwater.

Elise Milnes finished in 52:05, three minutes ahead of Graham Milnes.

Todmorden Results: 41 Marcel Ellison 42:13; 74 Simon Galloway 45:19; 91 Kath Brierley 47:35; 108 Keith Parkinson 49:39; 112 Lucy Hobbs 50:04; 123 Chris Drinkwater 50:58; 134 Elise Milnes 52:05; 149 Graham Milnes 55:15.
