Clear and calm conditions prevailed on Saturday for the Ovenden Fell Race. A local fell race, starting at Ogden Reservoir. Eight runners from Queensbury took part and some much appreciated support from others out and about on the route! Chris Williams was first back for the club in 6th place, despite getting lost in the last mile on a well known local route! Confusion was caused due to some flags been incorrectly placed resulting in part of the field taking a slightly confusing detour. Ben Clare, also caught up in the confusion towards the end finished in an excellent 16th spot, Pete Hughes 24th and within the same minute Mick Coe 31st, our next four runners were all grouped within a few places including Graham Jowett 73rd, Anna Smith 74th, Andrew Stott marking his debut in a Queensbury Vest 76th and Lee Hipwell 80th.
