Brampton to Carlisle

After the horrendous weather Cumbria had been subjected to over the previous few days the race managed to go ahead albeit with a shortened course of 9.1 miles instead of the usual 10 due to flooding on part of the normal route.  Fortunately, the weather on the day was not as bad as had been forecasted, with the strong wind mostly buffeting runners from the side rather than head on and apart from a couple of heavy showers the rain was mainly a steady drizzle.  Twenty eight Blyth members completed the race, which was the last in this year’s Grand Prix series.  Pride of place goes to Paul Whalley, whose excellent sixth place on the day gave him the division title by 1 point from Robbie Barkley and Terry McCabe who finished 3rd V60.
