Race Date: 17th July 2019
The course is 7.2 km (4½ miles) long with 320m (just over 1000’) of climb. 202 runners took part in the Bamford Carnival Fell Race this year, a popular and long established summer evening race. Runners begin with a dash across Bamford Recreation Ground, climb up to the hamlet of Thornhill and steeply up to Parkin Clough, before finally reaching the summit of Win Hill. The descent back to Bamford is challenging and twisty, through gorse bushes and narrow paths.
Phillipa Williams of Sheffield RC was first lady back, impressively coming 6th overall and taking the course record in 31.30. Will Boothman of Dark Peak was the leading male in 29.58.
There was a good smattering of Striders, despite there being a championship race the following day. Well done all!
