Fell Championship 2024 – Event 1 – Stanbury Splash – report and results

18th January 2024

While a lot of the club was focused on the Temple Newsome 10 and the Club Championships, clever Sean sneaked out to the Stanbury Splash and took the top spot in the Men’s Fell champs after 1 race. Unfortunately there were no women representing Striders at this race but there is time for that.

Looking at the Strava profile for the race, Sean definitely didn’t take the easy option completing almost 400m of elevation in just under 11km of running in a time of 1 hour 16mins 24seconds. A downhill start, inevitably meant that there was a sting in the tail to contend with. Stanbury Splash Results.

It is early days but Sean has taken the lead in the champs table, but I’m sure the defending champions Dan and Catherine will be back out there soon.

The next event is Runners and Riders on Sunday 4th February.
