    The Ken Taylor Race

    Andy O'Sullivan is organising a race in tribute to Ken Taylor the reigning Vets Over 60s British and English Fell Champion who is presently recovery from stomach cancer.
    Ken has been an inspiration to many of us here at Rossendale Harriers ( and in the wider fell running community) for many years and his achievments are manifold. Whilst the date planned for the race does clash with many other events on the same day many of Kens friends may want to turn up on the day to pay tribute.Details as follows :

    Would love to do this race for Ken. However it clashes with Tebay and also Buckden, so sorry will not be there. Have a great day.
    Can you not pick another day?
    Ken, top fell runner, Hope you make a full recovery.
    You are an inspiration to many runners, you make it look so easy!
    Hope to see you back on the fells soon.
    Best wishes

    all our thoughts are with ken and his family,
    he is held with great respect by all at bingley.
    quite a few of us are unable to attend due to tebay but would like to send some kind of message of support to ken and family.
    can anyone please advise the best way to do so
