Fell Championship 2024 – Event 8 – Pen Y Ghent – report and results

5th June 2024

Round 8 of the Fell Champs saw a trip to Pen Y Ghent, one of Yorkshire’s 3 peaks. Although the race essentially went up and back the mountain it is not an out and back, rather you run up the South side and run down the North side. Easy!! We had 3 runners on the roughly 11km course.

Below are the official results.

Pen Y Ghent Results

Will took his third win of the year from the 3 races he has entered. While this kept him in 5th overall, he must be in with a shout of claiming the overall title if he completes more events. Phil came 2nd, which means he has 5 from 5 in the top 2. Again he stays in 2nd overall but is now hot on the heels of Sean. Phil was in fact only 32 seconds behind Will on age grading so it was a tight battle. James completed his 2nd race and jumped a whopping 13 places up to 9th overall.

The next event is Kettlewell Anniversady Race on Thursday 6th June 2024
