Axnfell 2018 Results

Many thanks to all those who made yesterday’s very special race happen . The sentiment has been summed up very nicely by a seasoned competitor over that gruelling course - our very own Richie Stevenson…

Many of us old fell campaigners have always regarded the Axenfell Race as the real job and the toughest fell race MFR have ever promoted. I think everyone who competed today now understand what we mean. Well done to all who took on the challenge today especially Tom and Eleanor. I feel pretty sure Eleanor set a new ladies course record to improve the standard set by local fell running legend Rose Hooton over 20 years ago. There was also a shorter small Ax race that ran concurrently with the main race. Both races were dedicated to the late Matt McSevny who was an extremely popular MFR competitor and club treasurer who passed away in tragic circumstances nearly 12 months ago . His close friend Chris Kirk said a few heart felt words about Matt before the race was started by Matts son Orry. Many thanks to all the helpers and marshals on the day and to everyone who helped set up the race. Thanks also to league sponsor Callin/Wild and to land owners for access. Well done also to Shaun whose persistence made the race happen. Finally a very special thank you to Becky, Finbar and Orry for their support, it meant an awful lot to MFR
