Flower Scar Fell Race | Ilkley Moor Fell Race

The Flower Scar Fell Race moved to a new venue of Todmorden Cricket Club and a new route on Saturday.

The longer 10.4km course climbed up Todmorden Edge from Centre Vale Park, and on to Flower Scar Hill. A woodland descent then led runners back along the valley, with a sting in the tail climb before a final descent to the finish at the Cricket Club.

Calder Valley Fell Runners claimed the first three places with Karl Gray edging out Tim Ellis by one second to win in a time of 45:59. Alex Whittem followed over three minutes later in third place.

Hannah Rhodes Patterson, of Durham University finished over four minutes behind Lauren to claim second place ahead of Horwich’s Lindsey Brindle.

Todmorden also won the ladies team prize, with Jane Leonard and Clare Kenny combining with Lauren to pip Clayton Le Moors by just one point.

Dan Taylor was the first Todmorden man to finish in 36th place, followed by Rob Tyson in 60th and Simon Hollows in 78th position.
