New Year’s Day 2014 – Giant’s Tooth Fell Race

Report from John Dade

A wet and soggy start to the New Year. A short and very enjoyable three-mile circuit with 400 feet of ascent around Ogden Reservoir taking in the climb up to the Giant’s Tooth standing stone. Most of this was on tracks with a few sections on woodland paths. Lots of standing water and mud. The best bit was a long descent on paths through the woods in pursuit of a lady in a caveman suit. I didn’t spot any Otley runners but it wasn’t easy as we were all zipped up in our waterproofs. No idea of my time. There’s a picture of the race results on Twitter but the times aren’t clear. I can say the race was won by James Hall in 17:10. I came 75th out of  124 entrants with a time of 25:26. Full results available on the FRA website here.
