Dales Weekend 16/17 September 2017

It was a great PFO attendance last weekend, 12 club members turned out for Day 1 of the Dales Weekend at Attamire near Settle and 14 club members competed on Day 2 at Malham. All courses were physically demanding and technical, but we were blessed with clear skies and good visibility or the results could have looked very different.

Harvester Relays 2017

Hamish's map Harvester Relays 2017,

Harvester relays 2017
For the first time in many years PFO took part in the annual inter club relay competition called the Harvester. This is in main due to the decision a couple of years ago to make Tom Gray relay coordinator.  So many thanks must go to Tom for doing the leg work of entering the teams .  The Harvester is very much the grown up version of the Peter Palmer junior relays in that it starts in the dark and finishes in daylight. PFO managed to put in two B teams. That is a total of 10 runners with the Wood and Alexander families providing the bulk of runners.
The B teams started running at 1.30am. Gary Alexander and myself went up to the start after, in my case 1 hours sleep to be greeted by someone form South London saying ‘ Isn’t this exciting’ , Gary and I looked at each other and thought otherwise.
