Fell Running Weekend 2014

29 Isle of Wight Road Runners took to the hills of Ventnor to participate in the Isle of Wight Fell Running Championship Series on 13th and 14th September.


The weekend consisted of three grueling races over the two days which saw competitors run 2.7, 7.6 and finally 12 miles.



Those competing were treated to some beautiful views, huge hills and exhilarating descents.

Of the 13 ladies who competed Jodie Gifford was the first Road Runner and Islander back with a position of 16th over the three races followed by Elaine Harris (19th) and Alison Batchelor (24th)  who made up our first ladies team placing 5th,  and first islanders women team.

There were 16 RR men and over the three races Stu Backhouse finished an impressive 18th followed by Pete Wilmott (31st) and Mick Coultrup (46th). The mens team were 9th and we had a total of three mens and three ladies teams for the weekend of races – so a great turn out for the Club, well done to all who participated and also a big thank you to those who supported the club!
