As the waterways of the north are reduced to a trickle with the continuing hot weather of June, there were rivers of sweat on the hills over the weekend. First of a trio of peakland races, Tideswell, at 4 miles and 850 feet provides a fast thrash of a run twice crossing the river Wye and climbing and descending the valley side of Millerís Dale. Phil Abbott 32:20, Colin Bostock 39:00 and a return to the hills for Vicky Yeomans 45:00 competed. In the sublime Chrome Hill race from the Staffordshire hamlet of Hollinsclough, Phil Abbott placed an excellent 3rd in 37:42 over the 4 miles and 700 feet of this sharkís fin of limestone with Colin Bostock in a top 10 placing with 9th in 45:37. John Birch and Carole Birch came away with course best times of 45:48 and 66:26 respectively in the Bakewell Pudding 6.5 mile 700 feet fell race. John was 10th and 3rd V50 with Carole 93rd. The hills around Sedbergh provided the venue for the short course counter of the British and English Fell and Hill Running Championships. Over 4.1 miles and 1663 feet in stifling heat that had runners collapsing during the race with heat stroke, Dicky Wilkinson still unable to find form in the recent hot weather, finished a disappointed 174th in 46:09.

Ian Williams ran the Milton Keynes park run 5 Km in 22:02 improving by 7 seconds on his time from the race in February.

In the searing 40 degree heat by day and freezing temperatures of night, John Hammond and Phil Wallis embarked on a 6 day 150 mile epic adventure race in the Gobi desert on the 26th June. Carrying their gear and water on the way this charity raising run will surely test bodies and minds to their limits. And we think itís been hot for running here!
