    Chelmorton Chase

    Anyone going here tomorrow? Sounds good!

    2006 September 10th Chelmorton Chase Fell race.

    Andy Wilton bagged another first place in the Chelly Chase five mile, one thousand foot village fell race. A splendid sunshine morning found Liz Batt home as first lady, the duo held their places from last year but there was no course record. Almost a hundred runners competed for honours on the course, with growing numbers new parking arrangements saw cars parked in Primitive Fields on the right of the entrance to the village. Runners from across the country joined with teams from Macclesfield, Buxton and Staffs Moorlands to warm up on Main Street. Mrs Allen kindly granted permission to use the Low and a great deal of help came in from other farmers, the Ardens, Wealdons and Bagshawas as well as the many marshals from the village who mark the route and attend the turns to keep the fast feet on the right direction. Tracey Worth, Lady of Hollinsclough waved away the start and provided hot pies to all who made it home, tea coffee and refreshments were served out of Primitive Hall and runners left with full time sheets admirably prepared on the spot by Derek, Angela & Judith. A tremendous run on a fantastic course with views and terrain unmatched across the fell race calendar.

    ......terrain unmatched across the fell race calendar.

    ?!?!?!

    I used to love the advert for this in the calendar - sadly a shortened version this year - but claiming to be one of the toughest races in the calendar was slightly OTT.

    A very pleasant run. Enjoyed the sting in the tail, up and down Chelmorton Low.
    Mark Williams of Pennine was the winner. Under 18 Amy Mellor of Buxton was first lady.

    Well done to Mark (I know you'll be reading this) - it makes a nice change to see a Pennine name at the top of a results sheet. Not that I've anything against Dark Peak, of course....

    Seem to be a lot of vets there - where were all the youngsters?

    I will be there. It's a nice easy race. Out & back across fields with lots of walls/stiles.
    Finishes with up & down Chelmorton Low and a sprint down the main street.
    I think the route is something like this:

    Thanks Swoop - I like walls and stiles; they give me lots of opportunity to rest!

    Did this last year. It'll make a great first fell race, not too tough but a nice run all the same. Hope you enjoy it!
