Stonyhurst Fell-racing Team’s best-ever performance at Arnside Knott

In the annual Arnside Knott Fell Race, Cumbria, Stonyhurst entered 5 runners in the U23 category, securing the following individual overall positions: Jan Zimoch (25th out of 142, with a time of 43.08); Will Metcalf (33rd; 43.44); Lukasz Kolodziej (64th; 49.05); Zac Aghaizu (87th; 50.38); Colm Fahy (103rd; 53.18). The fastest overall race time was 35.18 and the last finish time, of those who completed, was 77.49.

It’s a tough course, over 5.5 miles of limestone crag and woodland, with a climb of 920 feet (and the odd scary descent), and attracts experienced fell runners from Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cumbria, Northumberland, and even Suffolk.
