    Will be a report to follow, but a big thanks to the Marshalls and to The Staff of Life for hosting a successful first race as RO for me.

    Many Thanks to all who ran or helped to marshall.

    We have managed to raise 76.50 for Charity (This represents 1.50 from each entry), 51 will be going to the Charlie Bear Cancer Appeal and 25.50 will be going to a charity of Tod harriers choice (possibly The Candlelighters) to be decided next meeting.

    Marshalls this couldn't have happened without your help, everyone commented how friendly you all were and how well the race was orgainised this reflects well on all the helpers.

    Thanks Again

    Dan

    Hello all,

    It almost time for the second running of the Orchan Rocks Fell Race. This year it's on Tuesday 28th April, once again from the Staff of Life pub, burnley rd Todmorden.

    http://fellrunner.org.uk/races.php?id=3923

    You may or may not know I was knocked off my bike in December suffering various injuries (broken nose,fracture in neck, broken thumb, face and knee stitched up) 6 weeks after I fell harmlessly over and broke my knee. I am slowly recovering but won't be running for around 10 more weeks.

    Anyway less about me and more about the race. With the help of friends, family and club mates from Tod Harriers ( who made the recent Flower Scar race such a success) we are still running the race. It's a quick dash of an AS race, with a lovely grassy descent to the finish. Everyone who did it last year enjoyed the route and hopefully over time it can become a local classic.

    I have posted in the recce section of the forum with details of the first organised recce on Saturday 21st.

    I look forward to seeing some old and new faces at the race.

    Any questions just ask.

    Hi Everyone,

    Just a quick update about the Orchan Rocks race next tuesday, 7pm from the Staff of Life Pub Burnley road todmorden. Everything is going to plan, the landowner is away so no issues there and permission has been granted.

    The ground was dry at the recce on monday, but there could be rain before race day. If the weather is not good, there could be statutory kit requirements, which could include a Waterproof Top, hat and gloves, please come prepared for this.

    We are all good for marshalls and have a few spares if needed, if anyone can no longer help please let me know.

    Most of all I am hoping to see lots of the new faces, it would be great for a first time fell racer and they could be in line for a spot prize.

    Orchan Rocks is 3.5 miles long and has a couple of tough climbs, but they can be walked and the route is very easy to follow. Your unlikely to get lost, the views on a nice day are amazing and the descent is great.

    Further details http://www.fellrunner.org.uk/races.php?id=3923

    Any questions just ask.

    Hope to see you Tuesday.


    Dan

    I'll be one of the 'new faces'. Not done this race before so looking forward to it.
    Is there a map of the course?
