Fell League Winter Challenge 2014/5

Amanda Darbyshire, Melanie West and Dan Cobb all ran in the Chevin Chase, Auld Lang Syne on New Year's Eve and were back on the first day of 2015 to sprint round the Giant's Tooth. There was plenty of fun to be had, and congratulations on the many excellent Boxing Day results.

After travelling to Ripon for the Jolly Holly Jog Ian Hartman still
leads the individual league with Baildon teammate Emma Stoney a close
There was heavy snow on Penistone Hill before the Stanbury Splash but that didn't stop the race going ahead or runners from Saltaire,
Baildon and Queensbury from making the start. Kate Walter's run takes
her into third place in the individual league, and the points total from Saltaire moves them into second team place.

The Wadsworth Trog (7 February) is a long run over a demanding route
(terrain and navigation). The following weekend the Windy Hill fell race sets off from Littleborough on 14th February

Good luck with the weather,
