Helsby 2010 Summer Race Series – May Update

With some warm and sunny weather over the last few days it seems that summer might have arrived at last. Evening races are now abundant and the Wednesday night club runs over the Helsby Fells are in full swing.

It may therefore come as something of a surprise to learn that we are already a third of the way through the summer road series and a quarter of the way through the fell series. So if you want to compete in the club championship you better get cracking.

This years series has already seen a good number of the club members competing.

Road Series

So far the table for the road league sees some familiar names at the top, with Janet Shaw leading in the woman’s Table and Adair Broughton dominating the men’s table with a maximum score in every race competed in and several PB’s to boot.

Fell Series

In the Fell series Jane Ashbrook is holding the top spot in the ladies table and I’m predicting that once some holidays and injuries are out of the way will have a few more names competing against her.

Probably the most interesting league so far is the men’s fell series. Whilst Adair is holding his customary top spot he is not having it all his own way with Danny Chan scoring maximum points in two of the races. Further down the table the competition is also hotting up with Chris Baynham-Hughes performing well in his first 2 races and several other runners not far behind.
