    100 Races in 2012!

    Darren Fishwick of Chorley Harriers seen here at yesterday's Arnside Knott race after racing at the Tour of Pendle the day before.
    Darren has so far amassed a total of 90 races in 2012, the vast majority being fell races (just half a dozen road races) including most of the long Lakeland Classics. He collected the prize for the Most Improved Runner in the Lakeland Classics at Saturday's FRA Presentation evening.
    His target is to reach 100 races before the year end.
    Good Luck Darren!

    90 Not Out!

    Well Done Darren - I have that photo I keep forgetting to show you, you'd not been on the feels long - you're fuzz free and behind me (!) - maybe the beard has magical powers?!
    You've done amazingly - brilliant even, very inspirational, whens the 100th?

    and another good photo from Wharfee.

    chatted to Darren before Clwydian Hills
    was a bit bemused as to why I hadn't seen him more at races (cos I do a few myself), then realised that it was because he was always a lot nearer the front!
    regularly racing both days of a weekend is some going - respect!
    Scramble the rock face through the glare of morning sun to run

    Cheers Andy, i must confess its 90 races so far.Congratulations on your fantastic photograph of the late great DazH in Fellrunners brilliant tribute, what a mag!!
    Hello Emma hope your well, if all goes to plan the 100th will be Dave Woodheads magical Auld Lang Syne. Currently nursing a sore calve I pulled going up big end at Pendle. Stupidly did Arnside in agony and still limping, hope it's ok for Kirkby moor on saturday.
    Hi Tim, if alls well should be at Famous Grouse on Sunday, I know you like the hayfield events.
