Two of Clowne Road Runners specialist fell runners took on the popular ‘Totley Fell Running Series.’

The series consists of five races, with all the courses established in the Peak District.

The first race of the series was the ‘Tigger Tor’ which was the 30th running of the race, which covers a distance of 9.6 miles including over 1,600ft of climbing.

First home for Clowne was Simon Gregory, finishing in 65th position with his time of 01:31:35.

He was followed by Richard Hind in 168th position thanks to his finishing time of 1:44:48.

Jackie Robson followed up with her success in the Masters cross country in Wolverhampton by running in the Midlands Cross Country Championships at Wollaton Park.

With over 300 runners taking part, Road Runner Robson finished 114th in a time of 36:49, tackling a very tough and muddy Wollaton Park course.

Clowne Road Runners held their annual presentation evening at Clowne Community Centre.

This year’s winner of the Grand Prix, lifting the trophy for the first time, was John Profitt.

The Most Improved Runner award in the men’s section was Dan Page.

Samantha Coleclough took the ladies equivalent award.
