Report from OAC’s Sarah Fuller:
I was in Hathersage today for round two of the darkandwhite Mini Mountain Marathon Series.
Like round one, this was a three hour score event (collect as many checkpoints as you can in three hours) and it took in all the moors to the north of Hathersage, taking in the Burbage Valley, Stanage Edge and Bamford area.
Lovely, but fast running (not my forte as anyone who knows me can attest to!) with little navigation choices to make over the three hours.
I was suffering a little from the tail end of girl flu (far worse than man flu of course!) and heavy legs from the Christmas endulgance!
Still, it was an extremely enjoyable and friendly event and it wasn’t even that windy (well maybe a little bit!).
I finished with 225 points and 98th position (fourth lady in my age class and about tenth lady overall) and very proudly ten seconds within the three hour limit so perfect on the route judgement front!
Around 190 ran and the event was won by Richard Robinson with 330 points.
