Please find attached to a good little report and the official results for the Push-up-the-Pincyn race at the following link
With swooping birds of prey, a picturesque sky, £2 entry for the car and £1 extra to race (what a bargain btw) and some rolling fields of Wales the four hardy Helsby souls enjoyed the very 1st Pincyn race. Runnable but technical, except the 40degree angle climb (no protractors please) near the summit, and what a pity none of us managed to record/photograph Andy Todd using his special technique to hurdle the biggest haybale in Wales.
Positions and times of Helsby runners below:
8th Adair Broughton 47.02
32nd Phil Gillard 59.20
41st Andy Todd 66.10
42nd Stephen McCue 66.38
Congratulations also to Mario who finished 16th running for Cumberland and provided much needed ‘Powerade’ at the end and thanks to Joe for great support and helping to Marshall on the course. Special mention should also be made to Max Taylor who biked over 40 miles to welcome us home at the end of the race.
Please note the next fell counter is the classic Ponderosa race to be held on Wednesday 12th August at 7.00pm. This was my very first fell race, hmm how many years ago, and I guess i’ve never looked back……so if you’ve not yet tried a ‘fell race’ then this might be the ideal opportunity. If you’d like any more information then please contact, or see Joe, Andy or myself at the club
Some details at the link below, goto Entry Forms and look for the 4 Mile Hilly Off Road.
In the meantime, enjoy your running!
