Definitely worthy of a news item: Chris Arthur of these parts became the joint British Fell Running Champion of 2017 at the weekend. A monumental achievement, well done lad!

Sadly no image of Chris with a massive trophy just yet....

Totally and especially amazing since he's only been fell running for a couple of years?

Thanks all, just been pointed at this thread. It's been a very surpising year for running, in the best possible way.

Sadly it's getting on for two years now since I've been climbing though!
