Nichola 2nd at Three Peaks

The Three Peaks Fell Race in the Yorkshire Dales is an iconic race over 24 miles and 4,500 feet of climb. It has a long history, first run in 1954 and won by Fred Bagley of Preston H. This year was the 63rd event. Starting from Horton-in-Ribblesdale, the race first ascends Pen y Ghent, then onto Whernside from Ribblehead. The final peak of Ingleborough sees a stiff climb from Chapel-le-Dale and then there is a long run back to Horton.

There were 942 pre-entrants and Nichola Jackson in her first Three Peaks ran a strong and well-paced race to finish 2nd lady, 40th overall, in 3:17.26, behind the exceptional Victoria Wilkinson of Bingley Harriers who broke the course record. The men’s winner was Murray Strain from Scottish club Hunters Bog Trotters in 2:49.38. Tony Livesey finished in 220th position in 4:06.02.
