  1. Conditions were cold, wet, claggy and muddy with a lot of standing water on the trails up to top withens. I tried to keep up with Karen but she was too fast in the closing stages.

  2. great running Hugh, you all deserved a great big”Black and White” medal, for those performances, in all that rain and mud well done again all the OAC,who took part!

  3. Not sure that it can be considered great running. I did the same course in 2007 in 50:25 – about 8 minutes faster!

  4. Hard luck Hugh, but you are nearly 5 years older, they say you lose 1.5 minutes per year as you get older, well done anyway!
