02/11 - Jim Coldwell competed in one of his favourite fell races Dunnerdale, these are his thoughts:

OK, so the Black Combe race means the most to me; the Three Shires lives long in the memory; but…the best fell race? For me it’s Dunnerdale all the Emily Abbeyway. Less than 2,000 feet and at only about 5 miles it sounds like a simple up and down AS – but in reality it’s a mini Lakeland classic. With experience I now know that the closest is probably the Three Shires miniaturised by 50% - same hard climbs, tough descents, road crossing in the middle…or maybe it’s just me? I’ve had fairly fast times here, I’ve run with the local club (Black Combe Runners) over the route a number of times (including in the middle of the night) and it was my first real fell race. This year has been my most difficult since I had a real issue 11 years ago (another story that’s been told) and I’ve struggled with injury and then motivation. But…I loved the Dunnerdale today. Quicker than I thought I’d be (but not that quick), and as usual I bumped into a few folk I know from home (alongside the best fell runners in the country – see the results if you don’t believe me). Dunnerdale wins again for me. I’ll share, though, my conversation with my beautiful wife as I came in to the finish (alongside my two boys and greyhound Gem). ‘Did you get a pic of me coming in?’ – ‘Your days are over. Got some nice pictures of the dog though’. Fair enough actually!

03/11 - Tim Greenwood had another excellent Fell race at the Lockerton Limping where he was 3rd, Mike Keavney also had a great run.
Also on 03/11 Emily continued to run well at the Craggside Winter Half Marathon, 9th lady overall, 2nd in her age in a time of 1.49.32
Well done to Martin Randall who was 74th at the Derwentwater 10 mile - 1.11.25, Lucy Tulloch finished in 1.38.06.
