Ed: The Fell Runners Association website informs us that Helen Fines finished 2nd in the English Champs following her last race of the series on 30 July at Whittle Pike, South-West Pennines where she finished 2nd lady in the short course distance race over 8.2K with 427 metres of climbing. Congratulations to Helen who will no doubt want to go one better in 2012.
In the British Champs, unfortunately Helen was unable to race in the final event, the ‘Devil’s Beeftub’ so her hopes of a 2nd or 3rd place were dashed and she had to settle for 9th in the series.

We look forward to supporting Helen once again in the 2012 champs and her other major events throughout the year. Peter Simpson
