Fell Championship 2024 – Event 4 – Hooded Horse – report and results

18th April 2024

Round 5 of the Club Champs and Round 4 of the Fell Champs saw a trip to the North York Moors and the Hooded Horse 10k race. We had 21 Striders completing the race. Following, what felt like, months of rain the course was muddier than usual. The day itself provided good running conditions and it was great to see a good tun out.

Below are the official results.

Hooded Horse 10k Results

We had our first finishers in the Female’s Fell Champs 2024, which was great to see. Sima takes the lead in the Female category, could she go for an unprecedented double?! Sue and Emma join her on the current podium, but it is very early days.

Phil took the male category win by less than 10 seconds over Dan. This was our 4th different winner in 4 races. This means Phil and Dan sit 3rd and 4th overall. Sean not only completed the 4th race of 4 of the Fell Champs, but he also completed his “Wilcard event” at the Heartbeat Hobble. This means he has completed 5 events and we have only had 4 rounds!! This means he sits comfortably on top of the rankings and has already bagged 3 podium finishes. Tom completed his 3rd Fell race of the year and sits in 2nd.

The next event is Gisborough Moors on Sunday 21st April 2024
