Statistics for ladies

Normally I try to get into the top 20% of fell race fields. In the last year or so, I've even managed to sneak into the top 10% of some race fields. This is possible if there are 150 people. It's harder if there are 15!

The number of ladies entering fell races doesn't often lend itself to such analysis. There might be 10 women in a field, and one or two of them are normally disproportionately fast.

Last Sunday's Tigger Tor race was one of the few exceptions. Mrs Noel did it for the first time, and there were loads of ladies there. So I felt very helpful doing the maths and pointing out that she was in the top 10% of the ladies' field (5th out of 67) and of the lady-vets' field (2nd out of 27).

I stayed at home as our youngest was a bit ill, so I have no photos of the day. However, I can show the marmalade that was part of the prize. I realise I've done quite a few photos of jars of conserves, so am trying to make them more interesting with unusual camera angles. What do you think?


  1. Nice camera angle.

    Well done Mrs Noel.

  2. I am sure you can jam a few more fruity little pictures in.

  3. Gosh that's an exciting angle. July I believe in the 'Marmalades 2011' calendar?

  4. Thanks all

    Good puns srbt :)

    Perhaps I've set the bar too high with this one. What's next - action shots?

  5. Yes a good angle, Just baking a blackberry and apple teabread myself. Now well done to Mrs Noel at Tigger Tor. A greaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat great run from her. Gave her a shout as she ran in. I told her she would do well and she did.
