Sunday 8th August – Round Hill Fell Race

Sunday 8th August – Round Hill Fell Race

Heavy over night rain & morning showers led to very wet underfoot conditions, so you wouldn’t have thought any records would be broken, but that proved to be wrong as Ailish Graham took about a minute off Jo Waites’ record from 2011, finishing in 8th overall.  Alice Leake’s time in 2nd would have won all but 2 of the previous 17 Round Hill races.

Congratulations to the winner Salford’s Gary Priestley, a clear winner ahead of Wharfedale’s Sam Green.  See a summary of the category winners below and a full set of results here.

Well done to Matt Clegg 1.24.16, Lee Gumbrell, 1.34.40 & Antonio Cardinale, 2.27.32 flying the flag for the Black & Whites

A BIG thank you for all the marshals out on the hill & everyone who helped make it a succesful, I think,  return to ‘normal‘ racing.  Lots of photos courtesy of Steve Davey and Graham Lake on Yorkshire Runner Photos Facebook here.  Or Jack Robertshaw’s photo’s for non Facebook folk here.  A selection of these below.

  1. Hi my result for Round Hill 2021 is incorrect, unfortunately! The time is down as 1:36:36but my watch showed 2:00:12. My position is shown correctly. Many thanks Sarah Chalmers

  2. Great race, great organisation as ever. Simple, effective, boggy. (Life Guard’s needed at the Ford crossing next time). My neighbour Steve smashed me and he’s a Roadie ! He thought it was an amazing race though!

  3. I agree with Matt Cox that Round Hill is an awesome fell race , merit to Andrew Robertshaw for organizing this off-road since 2005 . Well done to all the runners .
