Spectrum, Tattenhall, Helsby inter-club series

A quick reminder of the three-way champs we’ve started with our friends at Tattenhall and Spectrum Striders. One race down, two to go…


There are 3 races for the first season, one chosen by each club:

Day  Race Distance
Wed 11 Jul  The Druid  (nr Mold)  8k/366m  5 miles/1100ft
Wed 8 Aug  Whittle Pike  (nr Rawtenstall)  8.2k/488m  5.1 miles/1400ft
Sat 22 Sep  King John’s Castle  (nr Mold)  7.4k/264m  4.6 miles/850ft

Each club has these races in their club fell race championship.


These are the rules for 2012. There will be a review after the first season to see how they are working and see if any tweaks to the scoring are necessary.

  1. Up to 7 men and 3 women will be counting runners for each club.
  2. Men score 21 points down to 1 point.
  3. Women score 21 points down to 13.
  4. There are extra bonus points in every vet category – 5, 3, & 1.  Vet categories are those used by the race organiser.
  5. There are also 2 bonus points for each male or female runner above the scoring team of 7 men and 3 women.
  6. 2nd claim members do count in this league.

Hi all

Please find attached results for the club favourite Tattenhall Tough Team Challenge. The results have not yet appeared on the website but should soon be updated and available here at the link below. Results can already be found as an excel attachment on the forum.


A great turnout of the green vest with 20 Helsby runners participating, with everyone smiling and full of effort despite the constant rain of the evening

Making light work of the dreaded ‘Railway’ and performance of the night were the winning Vets ladies team ‘Helsby over the Hillers’ which consisted of Jackie, Janet and Vanessa.

It was great to see all Helsby teams sticking together throughout the race and for Joe, Mario, Phil and Helen offering support on the night.
