Fell Race Championship update (after race 10)

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.

Entries are still open for Curbar Commotion (Sat 1 Oct) and it’s entry on the day for the Roaches (Sun 12 Nov), so anyone needing a vital few final points still have two more opportunities.

And so, on to the standings…

Senior women

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.

1 Sally Twigg 371.25
2 Caroline Brock 287.89
3 Tessa Bainbridge 282.71
4 Laura Rangeley 202.73
5 Ellie Bull 102.64

V40 women

Rachel Rea looks to have this year’s title in the bag, unless Alison can run strongly at both of the final two races.

1 Rachel Rea 319.36
2 Alison Barrett 174.76
3 Clare Gilmer 83.29
4 Sarah Allcard 72.07

 V50 women

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?

1 Kate Scott 212.92
2 Jane Huws 187.19
3 Nada Ross 181.57

 V60 women

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.

1 Jo Gleig 305.82
2 Nicole Nield 118.80

Senior men

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.

1 Seth Kirby 348.28
2 Jim Rangeley 282.58
3 Rob Byers 94.40
4 Jude Stone 67.74
5 Chris Brown 59.33

V40 men

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.

1 Paul Middlemas 438.35
2 Louis Wood 425.91
3 Andrew Mansfield 385.70
4 Lee Mills 333.33
5 Tim Holt 244.47

V50 men

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.

1 Al Cook 393.33
2 Mark Platton 366.88
3 Ian Stinson 339.91
4 Will Day 311.27
5 Warren Brown 218.55

V60 men

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.

1 Kevin Haighton 293.67
2 David Beech 59.03

V70 men

Just a single competitor in this category this year, but nevertheless, Paul Shelton has proved a worthy winner with a number of fine performances.

1 Paul Shelton 250.35
