Sunday 1st December – Gravy Pud Fell Race

Report from Christian Hosker:

I headed over to Tintwistle, near Glossop in Derbyshire this morning to run the annual Gravy Pud fell race. This was a 5.5 mile route, of which the first two consisted of a 981 ft ascent (according to my GPS). We were very lucky with some un-seasonaly fine weather, and the clear skies allowed for some cracking views of the High Peak. It added up to a thoroughly enjoyable race for a fell running novice like me.

The race of 128 runners was won by Tom Cornthwaite of Salford Harriers in 33.32 with the first female finisher being Sarah Turnstall of Kendal AC in 39.07.

I finished 108 in 49.07. Full results here.
