This race was introduced three years ago as part of Abbey Runners 25th Anniversay and hence the name. Details of the race from fellrunner.
It’s a 5 mile / 1,800′ race over the hill to the west of Kettlewell then down the other side, almost to Arncliffe and back. So even though it’s a relatively short race it has two long climbs the equivalent of the Chevin race the day before and a few did both races.
We all came home with at least one box of chocolates and Matt a voucher for a weekend at the pub too. As did the lady who was the last finisher, next year it might be a case of , ‘after you, no, no after you…’,
…and I forgot to say it was a little on the wet side, ok for running but not the best of nights to be out marshaling on the fells.
