Ilam National Trust – Final English Championship:- Can't just see the results yet? At long last a Championship course in the White Peak, and an excellent course at that. Everything very well organised. There were downpours on the trip down, but it stayed fair for the Women, and some rain later on wasn't much to worry about. Three sharp climbs, with some slippery stepping stones and limestone rocks. So that ends the 2019 Championship campaigns, outcomes will soon be revealed - though a first team result from the Women won't be doing any harm. In time next year's races will emerge.
Relays here we come. and The Nav Leg at Fairholmes...bring on the clag....and trust that Abbey Brook isn't in spate, as once it was....

British Mountain Running Championships – Lanberis :- Can anyone find the results?

Grisedale Horseshoe – English Championship.Men's Results. and Women's Results.
Excellent running conditions, pleasantly warm, no wind and clear. For those of us plodding at a more sedate pace, ample time to be looking around at the full range of Lakeland Fells. A bit sloshy on some of the drops, and as for that hill......
Once again , totally marvellous club support. Nathan was first MU23, Jude - 1st W50, and apart from that, not a clue and too weary to be sorting anything out...

Ben Nevis:- Results.
Yr Eifl – on the Llyn Peninsula, and a potential Classic?

Arnison Crag Horseshoe:-
Burnsall:- Results.
Brecon Beacons - Results.

Pendleton:- This was also a qualifying trial race for U17 and U19 Home Internationals, and might well have been a trial for plenty else. (But not for us old ancients,,,).
It's some classic, long-established AS course around the far end of Pendle. Hot, though ample boggy bits to wade through, and some rough descent in the middle. An interesting local testrun was to avoid the middle drop by going around high, but it didn't seem to have worked. Β£3.50 entry, and a bottle of beer as we finished.....can’t be that bad at all....Results.

Grasmere:- Results.
Kong Mini MM Round 3 :- at Loweswater:- Results.
Hebden Sports – near Grassington. Very rare for any results to emerge....

Black Fell:- English Championship , AM.
After all my prattlings about finding the way in any clag, there were no problems at all. There was a track down to CP 2, down in the valley - usually this is pathless. CP3 was visible high up, with a highway to reach it. And from CP%, the grouse butt, a veritable motorway across to Hag Dyke, staying high. Hopefully all will be normal next year, in thick fog...
With Keswick elsewhere, it should be first Men's team - the other results will emerge.
