Helsby RC weekly round-up 14th to 20th August 2017

Hello Green Army

Couple of notice’s before we do the reports.

Davyd turns 40 this weekend and to celebrate he will be doing Pheonix Park Run on Saturday, 9am start. It’s also his 50th Park run, and i believe he’s bringing cakes, so would be a great way to start his weekend of celebrating with some of the green army. Happy birthday mate.

We have a dilemma, our last road counter at Congleton half on 1st October, clashes with the first Borders League race and also the Sandstone A & B races. There are a few that have already entered, so the committee decided to add another (13th) road counter in, so people who normally commit to the Borders and the always popular Sandstone races, still have chance to do one more road counter. We have decided that Conwy Half on 19th November will be the additional race. This was also chosen so it didn’t clash with any of the Sunday XC dates that have just been finalised, list of dates coming out very soon.

Richard Hankins wanted to remind us of the following race

It’s is the Cilcain show race on Monday.  Details here http://cilcainshow.org.uk/page30.html .

Right then, onto the race reports, over to Ben Fletcher who is back running, great news for the Borders League team that is 🙂 

After a long absence from racing due to injury, I finally got to do my first race of the year, the Weasdale Horseshoe fell race. The race is part of the Ravenstonedale Show which is a typical Cumbrian show, with sheepdog trials, tug of war, wellie wanging and even the egg and spoon race which I fancied entering in myself!

The Weasdale Horseshoe is roughly 8.5 miles with just over 2000ft of climbing which takes you over the Howgill Fells of Hooksey, Randygill Top and Green Bell.

The race started at the top of the showfield before heading out onto the open fells over some very boggy tussock ground, which was good fun as I ended up knee deep in mud and ditches a few times. Once on the open fell the route choice is up to you, as long as you have reached the two checkpoints, which I found straight forward, unlike a few runners who got lost and decided to add a bit extra on! Once round the horseshoe it was back down and through the mud and ditches and back into the showfield which was a uphill finish, just what you want with a crowd watching you!

I finished in 12th place and 3rd v40.

Good to see you back Ben

Jackie and a few others have been racing trains again. 

This weekend it was “Race the TRain” weekend in Tywyn, mid Wales.
What a grim start to the weekend! A wet week in Wales followed by a 2 hour intense deluge Friday evening meant we “surfed” our campervan into the camping field/mooring skidding very close to Dave & Lesley’s Delila.  Then sat snug in the van listening to the rain outside waiting for Rachel & Mollie to arrive close to midnight!  They insisted on putting their tent up despite me trying to persuade them to squeeze into our van. A quick discussion before we settled down made me sleep at lot easier. Lesley & I had entered the full 14 miler & Rachel & Mollie the 10 K but Rachel volunteered to swap with me. A fine deal I thought as I’ve taken a few bumps/falls these last few weeks & felt 14 miles of mud was tempting another one.
Even more rain overnight,  but it dawned slightly brighter & drier thank goodness. The 10K meant a morning ride on the steam train to the far end of Tal-y-Lyn valley. Mol & I shared a cabin with a chatty  group of runners from Holland, over specially for the race.  Yes its an international race!  Then at 11am we were off. When you’ve done the full race many times then the 10K is a delight!   The full race is out and back, the first few miles road & repeated at the start & finish with a large off road loop consisting of 5 miles of meandering & undulating fields & farmland to the train terminus at Abergynolwyn. Then a higher run back climbing & undulating along the valley sides. The 10K consisted of the return higher & hillier loop, but the difference is you do it on fresh legs. So it was thoroughly enjoyable with much more energy for the muddy, slippery sometimes calf deep boggy bits!   Mollie did really well, shooting off way ahead of me but alas a slip and her road shoes slowed her down & I caught up and we encouraged each other over the final miles (only for her to sprint ahead again in the final uphill 100m!).
There was a great viewing spot close to our campsite where the trail crosses the railway line and our support team were there to cheer us on before making their way to the start of the long race at 2pm.  Time for a quick shower & snack before making our way to the same bridge to clap the full race runners on their way. A quick nip into Tywyn for afternoon tea (where all the shops were running out of cakes due to the sudden influx of hungry runners) & then back to the same spot to cheer everyone back in.   Mud, smiles, sweat  & grimaces galore; there was even someone hopping (over the stony bits) who had lost his shoes miles earlier in the very deep bog!   Rachel & Lesley came in looking challenged & fairly beaten but by the time we made our way to the finish to greet them they were their usual happy selves and on a high at their achievement – as we were!    All washed down by a great evening back on the campsite with celebration drinks & BBQ to finish the day off perfectly. A slow & short wander along the beach to Aberdovey for coffee & cakes on Sunday, getting back to the vans just before the afternoon rain set in!  Yet another memorable and most enjoyable Race the Train “Summer” weekend! It comes fully recommended!
Cheers Jackie

2 Hillforts Fell Race – Sunday 13/08/17

image1-3

A great race report has been sent in by Chris Collins:

“Firstly I will start by saying I’m not normally 1 for blogs nor am I an English grammar teacher but Jim asked me so nicely to do this and I couldn’t think of a valid excuse not to so here we go…

Sunday afternoon,1pm race start and the weather looks good as well as the temperature being near the 20’s. After spending a week in France eating and drinking I knew I wouldn’t have ran if I didn’t turn up. Having done this race before I knew what to expect, low key, great organisation, great atmosphere and on a good day some nice views from the 2 hill tops.

Once registered I spotted Jim Jones, we chatted and he told me how he had raced yesterday. Secretly inside I was over the moon knowing he may be heavy legged made my confidence grow at the fact I could be first home for our club!

Anyway to the race. This course is basically a long climb up to Penycloddiau (where there was once a hillfort) slight drop in altitude before a shorter climb up to the top of Moel Arthur (you guessed it, there used to be a hillfort there too) from there it’s all downhill to the finish.

For anyone who is interested results and a race round up can be found here http://walkrunclwydian.co.uk/2-hillforts-fell-race-2017-results/

Highly recommend the events Joe Cooper and Out-Fit put on regularly, not only do they have a great feel he also does these events to raise money for chosen charities.

Big shout to Jim for turning up and giving a good race after already giving his all on Saturday, I’m sure if he hadn’t of ran Saturday he would have had me!”

Thanks again for the report Chris. It was also great to see Leah there in support and taking photos.

NB Chris Collins was a little too modest to say in his report that he finished in 4th Place and won the MOPEN category! Well done mate!

Maesgwm Muddle fell race – Saturday 12/08/17

20861865_1827580963923046_3865835727724034075_o

Jim O’Hara and myself did the Maesgwm Muddle race on Saturday, Sharon Basford was also along running for Tattenhall, and what fun we had. It was a 10 mile race with some 3800ft of climb. The route loosely covers the Moel Eilio race route in reverse – with a couple of out and back add-ons! The most notable add-on being the first climb and then 20747973_1405593029489699_7589964420039885550_odescent of Moel Cynghorion, which was very steep, grassy and wet. Coming down a few opted to slide on their backsides. I tried it for a while until my sizeable load caused me to pick up so much speed I was worried I might not be able to put the breaks on! Visibility was bad on top, and a few people who didn’t know the route were using map and compass or tagging on to those who knew the route (or had gpx!). This was definitely one of the more technical races regarding descents that I’ve done, with the more experienced fell runners able to make good time on the downhill. It was a well hosted event by Mike Blake of Eryri and a great day out. Not seen the results yet but they should appear on the WFRA site.

Parkrun

Well done to everyone who was out at Parkruns this weekend. Phoenix Park runners were shown what Helsby RC are all about when Chris Fitzpatrick turned up for the first time there – and finished 1st! Followed in 2nd place by Ian Rutherford! Brilliant running guys. Our Parkrun cosolidated report is available HERE

That’s it for this week. Happy running!

Onto the reports, Ben C sent in this from the Ponderosa Fell Race

We arrived to a wet, foggy and what could have been said to be a miserable setting in the hills of Llangollen for the Ponderosa 2017 fell.
pom1

We could not see anything from the end of the carpark. Still, as always, the runner’s vibes were high as we all set off walking down to sign up with our pennies ready. Took us a good 5minutes… must have been 30 meter, the Frodfather, being stopped by every man and his dog to say hello, “must be some sort of local running celebrity”, “think it’s his tan to be honest”. £4 to run, no kit check, savvy!

pon2

 

Back to the car we trotted to get suited and booted, “bladdy hell, its gunna be a wet one, is it a coat job?” “You kidding??!! We’re from Helsby, Vests only!!” and there we were jogging up field, vests out for the ladies, high-fiving Joe and Mario whist en route as we headed to the start.

7pm arrived and the runners assembled, 9 of us from team Helsby (Paul Frodsham, Paul Cunning ham, Debbie Read, Christine Roach, Rachel Arnold, The Roberts Due, Jim O’Hara and myself). The whistle blew and off we went,
92 runners started the ascent. It wasn’t a complete nightmare to be fair, most managed to keep a steady pace all the way up. After the ascent, there was a narrow lose stoned bike trail that we had to single line dash across, seemed to go on forever. Everyone eagerly trying to get a chance to pass those in front whilst not falling over on the unstable rocks under our shoes… wasn’t going to happen. By this point the rain had stopped and the low clouds had started to pass.

pon3

The trail final opened up down a descent, runners finally getting their chance to take the person in front of them, others taking a minute to catch their breath, whether it by the ascent or the view of the rainbows over the valley. Either way it was beautiful!

pon5

As we finally winded our way down and around the hill, we meet with Mario once again, warning us that we were about to hit a bog! and didn’t we just. There was no running through this.. runners piling up on one another, struggling to keep their shoes on. Christine fell in, luckily not all the way, but it was up to her knees. My runners are still a wet, mushy mess now at home stinking out the kitchen.

The finish line was there! If we could just make it up this final little ascent. I’d like to think everyone struggled with that last bit. I know I sure did.

We made it! The race was over. We had all managed to get our sorry for nothing, wet, boggy asses over the finish line, all with smiles on our faces!!

The race was won by Michael Corrales (NWRRC) 26.59mins followed by two runners from Mercia Fell Runners, Billy Stirling 27.44mins  and James Craig 28.04mins.

Our own Jim O’Hara came 9th with a time of 29.55. Well Done Jim!!

pon4

I’m proud to say I was only 20 seconds behind the Frodfather with a time of 35.00mins (I thank you) Debbie and Christine were the winners of their categories!! Absolutely smashing it as usual! Much respect ladies!

Over all, for a 4 mile course and the weather leaving us with an ‘orrible stinky bog, it was a tough but enjoyable race.

 

Fitzy sent in this from the Pie and Peas race.

My first race back from injury and really wasn’t sure whether to race or not but what a race to come back to, pies & peas at the end of it. This sells out pretty quickly every year and i can now understand why, held in a lovely little village, which is very tight for the cars to get down and also the runners.

We arrived just in time for the heavens to open, and that continued exactly until the end of the race. The race takes you out of the village road of Davenham and onto the trail paths surrounding it, down to the Salt works and what i think was the River Weaver, a bit of undulation and back into the village for a lap of the green and past the finish line.

A few great results from Adam Gordon, 2nd Vet 40 and 15th Overall, 9 out of the top 10 were Vale Royal in a very strong field, and Carol Shaw 1st FV55. All in all 10 Helsby vests out on a thoroughly enjoyable night, and then back to the Legion for the best bit, pie and peas….lovely stuff

Jim Jones sent in this from The Peaks Skyline race

On Sunday 06/08/17 I completed the Peaks Skyline race which starts and finishes in Buxton. The route is 29.7 miles long with some 6600ft of climb and takes you to the five trigs of Axe Edge, The Roaches, Shutlingshoe, Shining Tor, Burbage Edge. I finished in 7 hours which was longer than I’d anticipated. But it was my first long run since I injured my knee in the Snowdon race 3 weeks ago. Not being able to run distance or hills while injured but continuing to eat like an ultra runner didn’t help much yesterday. I struggled the last few miles but at least the rain stayed away – and I stayed on my feet for a change. I finished 67th from 105 runners.

Helsby runners were in parkrun action across the area. Highlights include a 1st place for Col Thompson at Phoenix Park. Full results for Helsby members are below

Helsby RC weekly round-up 24th – 30th July 2017

Hello Green Army

Not much going on this week, only the one report, and that’s about a Swim as well. Don’t forget without reports we cannot put much in the blog, send them in to helsby-race-reports@outlook.com. Would be great to get some new writers as well.

As i’m typing this i’m reading on Social Media that Gaz O’Connor (who should have done the blog this week) has just completed the Deadwater Ultra Marathon, 225 miles from Scotland to Wales, running for 6 consecutive days. Sure we will hear about it next week, but I for one want to congratulate you, what an amazing achievement, well done mate.

Park run seen runners out in Bramhall, Pheonix, Chester, Medina I.O.W, Delamere, Shrewsbury, & Widnes. Full consolidated results below

Right over to CBH for the only report of the week, Helsby Swim Run club we will be known as soon. (note; i always get a mention in his reports, he must be missing me)

Breca Buttermere
Another weekend, another SwimRun! This time I stayed in the country and travelled up to Keswick for Breca Buttermere. To say the course was ambitious would be an understatement… after 21.9k of running, 4k of swimming over 7 swims, and all the transitions in between, the race heads up from Buttermere to Robinson along for a further 14.5k of the Anniversary Waltz route before dropping down to Derwent water for 2 swims (1500m total) separated by an island hop and a final 900m run to the finish. Phew! Check it out here: https://tinyurl.com/y8ad46k2
This time I was partnered with Tin Wilcock, my long-term partner in endurance sport, and what a privilege it was to spend time out with the him. We’ve done so many races together now, from our first ultra, through mountain marathons to UTMB, to winning the inaugural ‘Escape from Meriden’, I knew I was going to have a great day out in his company.
These days I find I don’t just want to rock up to an ultra unless I get to share it with one of the friends I’ve made through the club or through all my previous events; I see them as adventures to be enjoyed, sure I’ll compete, but that’s not the primary goal anymore, it’s the challenge, the adventure, the beauty and sharing it with friends that makes it for me.
Lining up I clocked Ben Abdelnoor and immediately thought the race was won if he has a half decent partner, there wasn’t much time for such thoughts as we set off and immediately got caught out by a dodgy course marking! Right from the first run I was feeling knackered, but we squeaked over the rollercoaster terrain and transitioned well into our first swim.
Sizing up other swimmers and knowing where other team’s strengths is a really important part of SwimRun, assuming you are racing (rather than just enjoying a day out). We’d decided that we were going to start off well and see how things went. The second swim was 1k and boy was it choppy! We bobbed up and down like corks and it felt for quite some time that we were not moving. Added to this a number of the other team’s ahead insisted on swimming banana shaped routes to the flags which kept making me question whether I was losing the ability to swim straight in the choppy waters; I wasn’t.
It’s the little wins that give you strength. Knowing that others were swimming extra distance, or didn’t have a swim tow rope (Tin and I consider this mandatory kit), spanking people in the swim so they know they must get well ahead in the run to maintain position (Liz and I were on the opposite side of this in Engadin!) bantering with other teams for dropping things repeatedly, or hearing the team argue. Focusing on the bits that are working for you, rather than the bits that aren’t, can bullet proof your psyche.
Every event requires a nemesis to keep things interesting and ours came in the form of one half of a mixed team. He clearly had a problem harnessing his competitive nature and was not only totally out of sync with his partner (and not even remotely interested in adjusting for the greater good) but he certainly didn’t like being overtaken due to dropping his goggles. His reaction was to elbow me out of the way on a narrow path; mine was to try and raise my jaw back up from astonishment. We’re all competitive, but these long endurance events just aren’t the place for that kind of behaviour… certainly not in the first few K. He instantly became a comedy figure and one we’d be quite happy to finish in front of.
Setting off up the climb to Robinson we spent extra time in transition whilst our comedy nemesis and his partner panicked their way through the aid station following our overtake of them in the swim. We suited down, topped up fluids, got fruit and gels in then cracked on. We were soon overtaken by a couple of farmers, one of which was a Sheppard… no prizes for guessing who could walk up a mountain quickest!
The route up is great as it affords competitors with good views of any teams ahead. For the first time in the race I realised that we could now see third place… unfortunately we could also see fourth, fifth and sixth too!
Hitting the ridge line, I realised I had absolutely nothing to give. By the time we saw Dale head we were a good 7-10 minutes behind 3rd-6th and spoke about how happy we’d be with a top ten finish. Dropping from Dale head we could see that one of the teams were really struggling. Their ‘beaten’ body language was set against the beauty of the Newlands valley… Tin got inspired.
Tin chased and I did everything I could to hold on. We finally took them on Maiden moor and put on our best cheery conversational voices (psychology is everything). To our utter astonishment they were still fully suited and wearing caps and goggles on their heads – I was roasting and I was fully suited down, goggles around my arm and cap in hand! The trip out to the Anni Waltz to cheer on Helsby runners earlier in the season left me with a nice bit of knowledge of the best line of Maiden moor; we were running free.
Descending to Derwent water allowed us to pick off another team (triathletes can’t descend Fitzy J) suddenly we were in 5th and not planning on relinquishing it. Hitting the road disaster struck, we’d lost the markers and were off course, a quick backtrack and we managed to finally find them again. To our astonishment we also found our comedy nemesis (much to his dismay). Overtaking them and heading to the final two swims I was confident we could seal 4th.
We… ok, I, had an enormous faff getting into the penultimate swim. I literally couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Thrashing away in the swim were the farmers and the comedy nemesis and his partner. The four teams had been so far ahead, but had taken it in turns to break like wet KitkKats! At this point Tin was wondering what I was doing and I was just making sure nothing was going to need fixing whilst in the water. We set off to the island just ~ 100 swimming metres behind third and fourth.
Arriving at the island I started to get concerned… had I been over confident of our swimming prowess? We hadn’t appeared to take much out of them and Tin was doing his shoe lace up which he hadn’t thought he had time to do before the last swim. I desperately wanted to get moving. We got into the final swim 60+ metres behind the two teams with me stating the obvious, “We’ve got to go balls out on this one Tin!”
The water had got choppy. Waves attacked us from behind whilst I tried to time my stroke so I could surf in on the wave… I don’t believe I ever sussed it! Within the first 200m we’d taken the farmers. Without a tow rope they were struggling in the water, and really struggled with the chop. Just the comedy nemesis to go.
The biggest problem we had on the swim was the concertina effect of the tow rope and the waves. This manifested in me going to breathe, Tin being pulled backwards on the wave and me being pulled underwater by the rope. It was killing me! We exited the water a couple of minutes ahead and Tin confessed to being wobbly – it wasn’t over yet, but I was confident we could walk the 900m to the finish and still snatch third. Job done!
Amazing event, recommended to anybody with a sense of adventure that can swim!
Epilogue – we met our nemesis later at the prize giving (they won the mixed), he introduced himself and got chatting to Tin. Blamed his partner for being so slow and made out like he would have beaten us soundly if it wasn’t for her. There was definitely one loser there this weekend!
