Sat 16 Feb 2019, Bleasdale Bleasdale Circle Fell Race Longridge lad, Oliver Heaton, used his local knowledge to good effect to win the Bleasdale Circle Fell Race by over a minute. Oli took command early in the race confident that his excellent descending skills would keep him to the front coming off Parlick and across the final fields to finish in 37:39. After a few well placed finishes recently this was a well deserved first victory for him.
