On a gloriously sunny 12 October Sunday, Andy Pead, Golf Valley Striders, won the 3rd running of Buxton Rotary's Annual Windgather Fell Race against a field of 127 runners in a time of 1.39:59. Jackie Lee, Eryri Harriers, finished as first lady in 1.55:10 - exactly the same time she set for the ladies' record in 2007. Full results at www.fellraces.co.uk. Buxton Rotarians, Inner Wheel, and friends, marshalled the course, staffed water points, and ensured runners enjoyed wholesome fare afterwards. Superb prizes, presented by Buxton Rotary President Ian Saunders, were again donated by race sponsors, Alexanders of Buxton. Rockhead Mineral Water supplied water and Accelerate (Sheffield) displayed sports accessories and provided runner' number tags.
