Report from Graham Lake:
What’s fast becoming a festive tradition for the Lake family kicked off in some drizzle and a chill wind from Great Ayton village centre.It’s a 5 mile race with 1043′ of ascent up to Captain Cook’s Monument and back. There’s plenty of road, but the muddy bits really made up for it. The descent is really fast and exciting and worth the race fee alone. I was running with quite a few others for most of the race, overtaking and being overtaken which kept the pace pretty high, and the last blast down a footpath to the village was very competitive.Not sure on position, but I knocked about a minute off
last year’s time, full results here: Esk Valley Fell Club. Hangover? What hangover?
