The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
James Jenkin: December 2015
The Cardington Cracker !
This weekend Tattenhall Runners were in action at the latest Borders League race in Caernavon and in Shropshire at the annual pre-Christmas favourite, The Cardington Cracker. This latter is a 9 mile fell race over some of the beautiful fells south of Shrewsbury basing itself from the village of Cardington. This year over 200 runners completed the testing course which included 2600ft of climbing and more than a little mud! Thankfully Storm Desmond had passed by the Sunday and this year the weather was mild and dry, largely.
The race was won by Ross Campbell from 'Dare 2 B Highland Hill Runners' in a time of 1:17:23 with, once again, Peter Taylor leading the Tattenhall pack in 14th place in a time of 1:25:34 and winning 2nd place in the MV40 category.Full Tattenhall listings are:Peter Taylor 14th overall, 1:25:34Simon Ellis 39th overall, 1:33:21Simon Duckett 63rd overall, 1:39:27Nick Holmes 70th overall,1:40:45Rob Chambers 92nd overall, 1:44:56Charlie Eldred 108th overall, 1:48:15James Jenkin 120th overall, 1:50:11Kate Lightfoot 126th overall, 1:51:16Mike Corkhill 168th overall, 2:00:39Sharon Basford 231st overall, 2:24:37The image below shows a few of the Tattenhall Runners outside Cardington Church.
