Bastow best at Ambleside
Gary Bastow continued his success in the Vet 50 category of the BOFRA (British Open Fell Running Association) championships by claiming first place in his age group yet again, this time at the Ambleside Sports event. The 2 mile course had 800 feet of ascent, with Gary 35th overall out of 115 runners.
Three days later he continued his winning streak at the Farlton Knott race in the south lakes. This time a longer course of 4.5 miles combined with 1,500 feet of ascent and was 25th out of 66 entrants overall.
These two wins take Gary’s total to eight wins for the season from sixteen events and needs just one more to secure the title.
