Weasdale Horseshoe | Pikes Peak Marathon | Crow Hill Reverse Fell Race

Dwane Dixon was once again in the points for Todmorden Harriers as the English Fell Championship reached the penultimate round with the Weasdale Horseshoe Fell Race on Saturday.

Dwane completed the 8 mile route in the Howgill Hills in 1:04:34 for 49th place, with John Lloyd in 60th position less than two minute behind and Paul Brannigan also squeezing into the top 100.

Todmorden men’s results: 49 Dwayne Dixon 1:04:34; 60 John Lloyd 1:06:25; 99 Paul Brannigan 1:11:46; 115 Dave Collins 1:14:10; 130 Dan Taylor 1:16:54; 139 Simon Anderton 1:19:54; 168 Mark Whittaker 1:27:03; 177 Chris Drinkwater 1:32:11; 189 Peter Ehrhardt 1:38:41; 192 Peter Marshal 1:43:13.

Kath Brierley finished in 37th place in the ladies race, with Fiona Armer in 56th, as the ladies team suffered from holiday and injury absences.

Lauren Jeska, having already secured the ladies championship, opted for a trip to America for the high altitude Pikes Peak Marathon where she finished in 5th place.

The previous week had seen a good turnout of over 100 for the Crow Hill Reverse Fell Race at Mytholmroyd on a fine sunny evening.

The race is organised, and sponsored, by local physiotherapist and Todmorden Harrier Ali Mills and in addition to raising over £450 for Ovarian Cancer, the runners also raised £150 towards the flood relief fund.

Halifax’s Ben Crowther narrowly edged out Calder Valley’s Tim Black to win in a time of 31:29.

The first Todmorden Harrier to finish was Sarah May who was also first lady overall.

Dave Collins crossed the line in 20th, with Phil Hodgson in 31st position, as they finished second and third v50’s respectively.

Gemma Kendall was third lady and 34th followed by 7th lady Sarah Warburton to help the ladies to the team prize.
