Heptonstall Fell Race – Sunday March 20th


Shaun Livesey was out again this weekend just a week after wining the Dentdale 14.2 and all part of his preparation for the Manchester Marathon.

Training and racing are going well for Shaun as can be seen in the results of his latest race and this time on the Fells where he finished 11th overall out of 247 finishers in a good time of 2hrs 07. 21 and commented to the Club after his race that “My last race before Manchester Marathon and I though I would take the short trip over to the happy valley of Heptonstall. I’d seen the route profile and previous results and thought if I run under 2 hr 10 min that would be a fair run. A fantastic spring day greeted the 250+ runners which was a record turn out for the event. I set off nice and steady chatting away to nick barber ( Todmorden) with whom I had many battles with during the red rose x/c, conscious that I wanted runners around me when it came to a small navigation section of the race. This wasn’t a problem due to the fantastic weather. I soon established my position in the race and tried to keep within myself and not push too hard too early. I was having a good battle with Dave Kirkham ( wharfedale ) he would drop me on the descent and I would catch him up on the climb, however at around 9.5m he fell hard! I stopped and asked if he was ok, he said yes and told me to push on. Subsequently I found out he had to retire shortly after that. I reached 13m I could feel the onset of fatigue coming on I knew I only had a couple of mile to push. After a welcome descent it was on to the sting in the tail, a brut of a climb trough some woods, the finish couldn’t come soon enough as I heard voices gaining behind me. I just managed to keep my place, eventually finishing 11th in 2hr 7min 01sec and totally spent. As for the race itself, it was fanatically organised with great support. Next stop Manchester”.

Andy Heys also joined Shaun for this race finishing in a time of 2hrs 48.33 placing him 130th out of the 247 finishers. He told the Club that “Whilst my performance was not the greatest, I used it as a training run in anticipation of the forthcoming 3-peaks race. The day was truly spectacular. We were graced with the perfect weather and the views and scenery were remarkable (must have definitely been the Lancashire side of the Pennines J) with the event being well attended and organised. The course was a real tough test with an added surprise of a long, steep, stepped climb about half a mile from the finish. Just what tired legs needed!”

Cumbrian Fell Race – Blackcombe

Blood, Sweat and Clag is how Ian Clarkson described his recent experience at Blackcombe in the race won by Ben Mounsey (2hrs 10.28) with just 19 seconds separating the first three finishers.

Finishing 455th with a time of 3hrs 19.22 Ian said  that “I had a go at a Cumbrian Fell Race, Blackcombe. Full on with all characteristics of a proper fell race, calf screaming ascents, skin ripping heather and visibility down to a few metre’s and a great downhill section at the end.
Many thanks to John Orrell who came along with us and for the support on the hill, teamwork.
Blackcombe is definitely in the diary for next year”.
