It goes without saying that the tragic death of club member Kate Burge has stunned and saddened not only the whole of the fell running community, but athletics and local sport in general.
The many tributes posted on Facebook both on Manx Fell Runners and her first club Stafford Harriers are testament to her popularity and the respect that her fellow competitors and race organisers had for her.
The tributes are not confined to her sporting prowess either as Kate was obviously a top notch physiotherapist who was very highly regarded by her work mates.
Tragically we will never see Kate on the Manx fells again. The thoughts of everyone involved in Manx fell running are with Kate`s family and friends at this very difficult time.
