Fell Championship 2024 – Event 9 – Kettlewell Anniversary – report and results

7th June 2024

Round 9 of the Fell Champs saw a trip to Kettlewell, in the heart of the dales. While the course was only about 5 miles/8km this had a LOT of elevation. Given the busy week in Striders’ diaries (HDSRL and Bed race) I think it was impressive that we had 3 finishers.

Below are the official results.

Kettlewell Anniversary Results

It was pretty tight, on age grade, between the 3 finishers; Phil came out on top and takes his 4th win of the year and has taken 1st place from Sean, in the overall standings, as he has now completed 6 events. Tom took 2nd for the 3rd time and remains in 4th overall. Steve took his 5th podium of the year and remains in 3rd overall. We are now past halfway, but since we have 8 events left, plus the wildcard, anyone could win!

The next event is Danefield Relay on Tuesday 2nd July 2024 (NB Please let Steve E know if you are interested in entering so he can put together the teams of 3)
