Greg and Nikki win at Purleigh, but Gary and Tracy win series

5 April 2010

Another successful Easter weekend of trails was completed at the Roundbush today with 125 competitors braving a strong headwind in the opening miles.

Last man off Greg Deacon surprised himself by snatching victory from Gary Chandler by just 36 seconds, but Nikki Brockbank won by almost 4 minutes with her stunning run which placed her 8th in the race.

Tracy Woodyard's dogged run was good enough to retain the overall. Despite his second place Gary Chandler still took the overall ahead of Andy Mason and Tim Brockington.

Andy and Tracy take lead

4 April 2010

Andy Mason and Tracy Woodyard went to the top of the leaderboard with wins at the third trail of the series today.

The Stag at Little Easton has always been the venue but this year was hosted by Trailfreaks rather than the B Team. Another good turnout saw many tired legs tackling the hilly course.

66 Striders have so far taken part this weekend with the other 240 expected to turn up tomorrow for the final race from the Roundbush at Purleigh. Starts from 10am Helen and I will be partaking of one of the fine breakfasts in the attached cafe from about 9.15. Do not disturb.

Spring on the fells

Saturday 15th May - Mount Famine, 5m/1850ft, a long way for a 5 miler, but one of my favourite fell races; another day trip

or join Andy Mason for Cribyn, 5.5m/3100ft. Again a long way, to the Brecon Beacons; probably feel even longer on the way back.

Sunday 16th May - Surrey Hill Races, a choice of 18m/2535ft, 10m/1268ft or 6m/730ft; not many easier fell races than the last 2 of those.

races start south west of Dorking, details at

Saturday 22nd May - Lletty, 9m/2900ft. (Inter counties race); another day trip, this time to the Clwydian Hills

and a couple of planned weekend trips

Friday 18th to Sunday 18th June - Midsummer Madness 3 day event on Midgley Moor near Hebden Bridge; good for anyone wanting to try fell running; accommodation is booked 

Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th July - Brecon Fans weekend, Pen-y-Fan (3.5m/1930ft) & Fan-y-Big (10m/2200ft); a good weekend, but not really for beginners. Websites -  &

ok, the last 2 aren't spring, but as weekends away a bit more notice is needed.
