Orchan Rocks Fell Race

Tuesday 29th April saw the first running of a new event in the valley The Orchan Rocks Fell Race, organised by Tod Harrier Dan Taylor. The race HQ was at the The Staff of Life Pub, Burnley Road.
53 runners from near and far enjoyed a quick race on a lovely warm evening. 
The route went up Knotts Cliff, past Hartley Royd, a loop around Orchan Rocks then a quick descent back to the finish.
Local Fireman and current BOFRA champion Shaun Godsman was pushed all the way by Darren Kay from Pudsey and Bramley. Shaun managed to finish in a very fast time of 21.59 setting a record that will be hard to beat in years to come, Darren was just 7 seconds behind. Joe Crossfield finished 3rd,  and along with first local John Lloyd in 4th place and Shaun they took home the team prize for Calder Valley. 
First lady was Rebecca Patrick from Tod Harriers, a couple of minutes ahead of Sharon Godsman and first local Rachel Hudson. Everyone enjoyed the fast grassy route, especially the fast descent back down Knotts Cliffs. 
Dan thanked Tim and Kate from the Staff of Life for hosting the event and all the runners for turning and making his his first ever race a great success. With all the good feedback Dan is hoping to run the event annually and also has another race ’Bridestone Fell Race’ scheduled for 17th June, see for further details.
