Wednesday night saw one of the Clubs more popular ‘fell races’. The Ponderosa Hill Race. Direct link to results can be found here:
Helsby positions and times as below
13th Adair Broughton 28.56

19th Jim O’Hara 30.35

64th Phil Gillard 35.56
70th Alec Robertson 36.35
103rd Jackie Keasley 41.45

With what was a record turnout of 118 runners to make their achievements all the more spectacular, two Helsby runners enjoyed their place on the Ponderosa Podium in 1st Place.
Well done to both Jane and Alec continuing the impressive winning streak. If I am not mistaken I think both these runners have now had two victories apiece in two races!
Joe gave some great hillside support as always, noticing how tightly the Helsby front runners were packing at the top of the first climb. It looks like next season will have some very close battles in the fell races. So please come along and be a part of it!
When photos become available of the Ponderosa I will post an edit on the Helsby blog. Comments and thoughts always welcome!
