With just 2 races remaining in the 2022 Fell Race Championship, we’ve reached the crunch point. Some battles are all but decided, while others are heading to a photo finish.
And so, on to the standings…
Sally Twigg has a healthy lead, but a high placed finish from Caroline or Tessa in the final races could see either of them taking the title on the finish line.
Rachel Rea looks to have this year’s title in the bag, unless Alison can run strongly at both of the final two races.
Kate Scott holds on to the lead she built up in the early races, but both Jane and Nada have been racing well recently. Can either of them overhaul Kate before they run out of races?
Jo Gleig has run consistently well all year and, barring a miracle, seems to have the title in the bag. Nicole would have to record a couple of super high placed finishes in the final two races to stand any chance of catching Jo.
Seth Kirby has been the breakout star of Striders fellrunning this year, and looks in prime position to take the senior men’s title. But Jim Rangeley can still take the crown with a decent run in one of the final races, especially if Seth can’t make a fifth race to top up his points.
Paul Middlemas got his five races in early and is looking good for the title at the end of the season. Louis and Andrew could theoretically still catch him, but would need one or two very high placed finishes in the final races to get the extra points required to sneak into pole position.
Always a tough fought category. Al Cook is sitting pretty with a good lead, but Mark, Ian and Will will all believe they are in with a shout of catching him. Expect some changes in the positions before the champs is over.
Dave Beech started strongly but Kevin Haighton has pulled into an unassailable lead with just two races to go, following a string of top results.
Just a single competitor in this category this year, but nevertheless, Paul Shelton has proved a worthy winner with a number of fine performances.
