Fell Championship 2024 – Event 2 – Runners and Riders – report and results

6th February 2024

For the second event in a row there was a clash with the Club Champs, which may have meant the attendance was lower at the Fell Champs. I believe that this is the last clash of 2024. On the positive side Sean had friends this week as Tom and Steve joined him on the Fells. I can only imagine what a race is like with bikes alongside you; I haven’t heard about any injuries so it must be fine!

Looking at the Strava profile for the race, unlike Event 1 the start was a “steady” uphill with a total elevation of 241m. Runners and Riders Results

Sean retains his lead at the top of the standings adding a third to his first place in event 1. Steve picked up the win, with Tom only 2 seconds behind on age grading!! Steve must clearly have timed his finish very well and clearly had all the age grading calculations in his head!

The next event is Ilkley Moor Fell Race on Sunday 3rd March.
