Ambles Revenge result

Race Date: Thursday 28th December 2023

Race Distance: 8 miles

Race Elevation: 1200 ft

The Ambles Revenge is a mixture of cross country, road and fell. The race goes in a clockwise direction, starting on the Trans Pennine Trail at Oxspring. It proceeds for 8 miles with over 1,200ft elevation, over farmers’ fields, quiet country lanes, through woodland and over many stiles towards Green Moor and back to Oxspring. The weather is usually poor & wet and there are parts that are very muddy and wet underfoot making it a real slog in parts. Undulating and hilly, it is certainly not an easy race.

275 runners started the race out of a sold out capacity of 350 making it a 21.43% no show rate – that’s pretty high and might be reflected by the pretty torrential showers that we suffered towards the end of the race – fun but grim!

The male race was won by Tom Fryers of Penistone FPRAC in 55.50. The female race was won by Ellie Cowper Coles of Denby Dale AC in 57.34.

Well done to the 20 Striders who made the trek over to Oxspring. Notable results were Sarah Thorne (F Sen 2nd), Caroline Brock (F Sen 3rd) and Josie Hill (FV 40 1st)
