Sunday 7th September saw Shelf Moor Fell Race, the third of our Inter-club series of races and a good race by Jimmy saw him take home the full 20 points. Rachel Arnold was 1st Helsby lady home. As this was the third and final race in the Inter-club series I have heard that Helsby have done enough to take home the title so well done to everyone who has been involved in any of the races!
Steve Rileys comments from facebook “Top run out today at Shelf Moor, Glossop. Smiley faces at the end from Jimmy (after a 5000′ warm up yesterday), Phil , Steve, Paul, Janet, Rachel and Jackie. Joe in full voice as per usual. About 6 miles and 1500′. Hills, sunshine, peat bogs, rocks, smiles. Rumour has it we did enough to snatch the inter club championships from Spectrum, Pensby and Tattenhall. Get in!”

Sunday saw a great result for Adrian at the Delamere Montane Trail 10k where he was 18th from over 160 runners. He ran so well he was awarded a special pink t-shirt, full evidence will appear on the blog shortly
18th Adrian Jackson 50.17

Also on Sunday Jenny and Tim Palmer ran in the Lakes. A report from Tim below
“Jenny and I ran in the Lakeland Trails Derwentwater 10k Trail Race on Saturday and we too received pink T shirts for doing so. The race starts at Fitz Park In Keswick and is very much a race of three parts: after a lap of the park, it is 2.5 miles along the old railway (now a cycle/foot path) alongside (and sometimes over) the River Greta, then a steep climb 400ft in about 1.5miles finished off an exhilarating fast descent back to Keswick. The weather was kind to us and the views were great.
Jenny 1:00:53 122nd out of 278
Tim 0:49:04 31st out of 278
Note: that on the provisional results we are listed as Deeside Orienteering Club, not Helsby – this should be changed on the full results”
Sunday was also the Salford 10k with four out for Helsby and a storming run by Ivan Davies saw him take home first for a Helsby in a classy sub 40 time. Not sure who the 4th runner was but Dave Madders has been watching too much Doctor Who and was in more than one time and place so all credit to him.
107th Ivan Davies 39.30
126th Roy Gaskill 40.20
186th Dave Madders 42.18
244th Dave Madders 43.30
