At the latest Inter Club Fell Championship race held at Warton Crag Red Rose turned out in great numbers. Around 25% of the entry was in the red vest of the increasingly vibrant local club with members willing to take the challenge of the fells. Fred Lynch led the team home on the sort of course he excels on. Ken Addison ran well with Phil Butler and John Shepherd not far behind. Alison John-Haslam had a fine race leading the ladies home and Bernard Elkington ran his first Fell run at the age of 70+.
