Lantern Pike FR - Sat, 21 Sep - a splendid late-summer day for this last race of the Hayfield Champs. Lloyd Taggart was back to take the top spot and Madeleine Dickson was first woman. Thanks to Jim for organising as usual and to Mel for looking after the junior races. Here are the senior and the junior results - thanks to Jim for these. Thanks also to Nick Ham for his in-race photos (with poultry!).

After this year's race, I was sent images of the results for the 1994 and 1995 races by Danny Jenkins who returned this year after 23 years! Thanks Danny, I'll stick them in the archive for now.

Hayfield Champs 2019 - the Champs concluded with the Lantern Pike race and 17 managed to complete four (and often more!) races to qualify and take home the usual natty T-shirt. Luke Cook was first man and Imogen Jones was first woman. Thanks, as ever, to Andy Howie for organising everything. Hopefully, we'll be back to the regular format next year with more longer races to look forward to! Here is the final table.
Cracken Edge - Wed, 7 Aug - Good conditions for this race which attracted 206 runners. Thanks to Kinder MRT for organising, marshaling, etc. Steve Vernon repeated his win of last year and Lauren McNeil was first F. Here are the results - thanks to Jim for these and also for the race report. Mark Fermer has taken some nice photos - thanks! As has Nick Ham - here - thanks Nick.

Congratulations to Rob Tayor who took over 4 minutes off Jeff Norman's V70 record for this race (and who now has both V60 and V70 records).

Race Route Map - I've been playing with OpenStreetMap a bit lately and have made a route map showing all of the local races. There is a menu at top right which lets you control what is displayed. Please be aware that some of these routes cross private land and no right of way is implied...
Hayfield Weather Site - Local runners may be interested in a weather web site I've cobbled together. Latest conditions and historical data (no forecasts!) can be found here.
HAYFIELD CHAMPIONSHIP - 2019

The Hayfield Championship is based around fell races held near Hayfield. There are no specific compulsory races but you must complete at least four races. Normally this must include at least one in each length category (short, medium and long) but for 2019 only any four races will count (owing to the cancellation of two of the long races).

  1. Lamb's Longer Leg - Sun, 13th Jan (Short)
  2. Chicken Run - Sat, 6th Apr (Medium)
  3. Kinder Downfall - Sun, 28th Apr (Medium)
  4. May Queen - Fri, 17th May (Short)
  5. Mount Famine - Sat, 18th May (Short)
  6. Lantern Pike Dash - Sun, 19th May (Short)
  7. Kinder Trog - Sun, 23rd Jun (Long)
  8. Cracken Edge - Wed, 7th Aug (Medium)
  9. Lantern Pike - Sat, 21st Sep (Short)
Entry to the championship costs £10 and all successful finishers receive a championship T-shirt. Entries will close after the Cracken Edge race. Championship scoring is based on the position in each race where the first championship runner scores one point, the second scores two, etc. The winner is the runner with the lowest number of points in their four best races. Prizegiving is at the Lantern Pike race.

All you need to know about entering is on the entry form or for more information contact Andy Howie (see Kinder Trial details below).
