There was a great turnout today at the Brough Law fell race in the Ingram valley. 82 runners registered and duly completed the 5 mile course on a very mild, dry and wind free day. Perfect weather and the strongest hint yet that spring is in the air.

In the women’s race, Karen Robertson crossed the line first in 44:13 with Katherine Davis second in 46:39 and Claire Bagness in third with 49:51.
A special note of thanks go to the following people for their invaluable help:
- Mike Steven, Richard Kirby (+ son/wife), Jane Briggs, Michael Briggs and Andy Richardson for their support and help on the day.
- Ross Wilson for permission to hold the race and for dismantling the course after the race.
- Northumberland National Park ranger (Mark) for the use of the new facilities at Bulby’s wood.
- Stuart Ferguson for the support from Hangar 18/FRA and guidance in making sure everything went smoothly.
A total of £220 was raised for Northumberland Mountain rescue.
Thank you to all who took part.
FYI – apologies to Marie and Jeffrey Emmerson who should have received prizes and didn’t. George R was mistakenly given a prize, but I’m sure he enjoyed it.
