Dionne wins Anniversary Waltz

Anniversay Waltz Fell Race, 24th April 2010.

11.5 M / 3600′

Dionne Allen continued here recent good racing form with a victory at this tough lakeland fell race, from Stair village in the Newlands Valley, placing 42nd overall in a time of 2:03:02.

Karl Ward was also running for the club finishing 40th in 2:02:10, with Geraldine Walkington clocking a time of 2:28:59.

For the first time this year there was an alternative to the traditional route for those who find 11.5 miles over the lakeland fells too easy. The “Teenage with Altitude” fell race added a few extra peaks to the start of the usual route to make it up to 15.4 miles and 7600 FOC. Only one club member, Ian Charters, was up to the task, and finished 39th in 4:02:26. Read about Ian’s experience of the race along with some stunning pictures on his blog.
