Baildon compete at the British Fell Relays for the first time!

"15 years ago remember marshalling at the Fell Relays and thinking how sad it was that Baildon would probably never get a team together for the event. Interest in fell running was so low at the club that I had to join Calder Valley! It’s fantastic to see the way that interest, numbers and talent have grown since then. Well done to all! This really marks another important milestone in the development of the club as an off-road force."

The words of a fellow Phillip Jones yesterday after Baildon Runners competed in the British Fell Relays 2018, finishing 185th overall.

Leg 1 was fully marked and run by Andy Robinson who regretted his decision of wearing just a vest! Leg 2 run by Ben Watson and James Wright, with James getting so excited he ran a little too fast down hill and had to use his chin to slow himself down!. Leg 3 required Emma Wilkins and Andy Price to navigate using a map they had only been given minutes after starting their leg, and finally Jeff Singleton ran the final leg which included all the best bits of the Lakes ; huge climbs and steep technical descents!

Well done to all of the team who faced consistent drizzle and low visibility as they completed their races in the mountains. Nice to see a nice big 'BAILDON RUNNERS' flag next to the finishing line too!
