2015 DRC Hill Race Championship, Lotus Hill.

27/05/2015

Lotus Hill near Beeswing was once again the venue for the Club's Hill Race Championship and 13 runners took their place on the start line for organiser Ranjit Thomas's pre-race briefing...

The afternoon's rain ensured that the runners and marshals out on the course would be faced with some tricky underfoot conditions. However, although not drying up completely, at least for the duration of the event conditions did improve slightly. The route started on forest road for approximately 1Km before taking the runners off through the forest on a wet and muddy path and across open moorland to the 321m summit. From here they were tested on the very boggy descent  before a final kilometre on forest road to the finish.

Richard Beck led from the start and crossed the line in 28:18 to claim the 2015 Hill Race men's title with Sue Jeffrey first back for the ladies in 36:07.

Kevin McQueen held off the faster descending Simon Mortlock with the pair finishing in 2nd and 3rd place respectively with the remaining ladies podium places being filled by Vicky Hart and Fiona Jardine.

Thanks are due to Ranjit for organising the event (and for acting as sweeper) and to Susan Gallagher and Gemma Leadbetter who braved the conditions to marshal the route and ensure everyone returned safely.

Results as follows:

1. Richard Beck 28:18

2. Kevin McQueen 30:07

3. Simon Mortlock 30:22

4. Sandy Shankland 32:49

5. Mo Khan 34:30

6. Brian Mohan 35:35

7. Sue Jeffrey 36:07

8. Frank Skachill 36:17

9. Bob Green 37:04

10. Vicky Hart 37:28

11. Steve Mohan 40:57

12. Peter Hutchison 41:37

13. Fiona Jardine 44:45
