Bamford fell race result

Race Date: Wednesday 13th July 2016

A lovely sunny evening attracted 233 finishers, including 26 Striders, to this 4.5 mile Bamford Carnival fell race. The website describes the race as thus:

The course is 4½ miles long with just over 1000’ of climb. Start from the Recreation Ground go along Water Lane to Thornhill Lane where you turn right before climbing up to the hamlet of Thornhill. In the middle of Thornhill you turn left followed by a right 200 metres later up Townhead Lane. Follow this track up through some woods to the triangle at the boundary of the open countryside. After a short steep ascent the course level out and cuts across to Parkin Clough where it turns left for the final steep climb to the top of Win Hill. After admiring the views over Ladybower Reservoir continue about 100m before turning sharply left and return to Thornhill over the fields. In the middle of Thornhill follow the narrow footpath by the side of Barleylands to return to Bamford Recreation Ground.

This year we had the added factor of ankle deep oozing mud in a small number of places, but enough to account for a couple of shoes and a couple of face dives – and that was just amongst the Striders. All in all a very hard slog up and an enjoyable run straight back down – the Strava profile basically says it all about this one. Well done to all involved.

The race was won by Matt Elkinton of DPFR in 29.33. The first woman home was Helen Thornhill of Buston in 36.37.
