Race Date: Saturday 20th September 2014
Scafell Pike Fell Race is 6.1 mile long with 3000′ of ascent. The name ‘Scafell Pike’ gives it an aura all of its own being the highest peak in England. There you go, highest peak in England, run up it and back down again in the fastest time.
Certainly sounds daunting, but it this didn’t put off Strider Helen Davis as she tackled the race along with 76 other brave souls.
Winning man was George Crayston of Borrowdale FR in 1:04:57, reaching the top in 45:30. First lady home was Caitlin Rice of Glossopdale Harriers who reached the top in 49:30 and came back to the bottom in 1:16:10.
Helen reached the summit in 1:09:30 and the bottom in 1:46:56, a great effort.
