Club member Lisa Carter notched up the triple crown of British peaks when she ran the Scafell Pike Fell Race.

She completed the 4.5 miles, with 2,999 feet of climbing, in 1:38:00.

It means that Carter has completed the fell races on the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales this year –- adding Scafell Pike to Ben Nevis and Snowdon – completing the Queen of the Hills competition.

Carter said: “There was some low clag on top, so there were no fabulous views unlike the other two races, but it was a great race and I made up several places on the descent.

“It’s great to have achieved all the three peaks fell races in the year, and to feel so strong on the last one.”

Mark Cartwright was in action at Fleetwood Triathlon, completing the 400m swim, 20k cycle ride and 5k run in 1:11:14.
