Shane Ewen reports:
Having been injured since Christmas, this was my come back event. Not a race as such; more a low key LDWA event with beautiful scenery, good banter and well-stocked checkpoints. Starts at Bland Hill, follows the shore along Swinsty and Fewston before following the river to Thruscross. Then over Rocking Moor to the shooting hall, across and down to Bolton Abbey Tea Rooms, Storiths, Deerstones, then a stiff climb up to Beamsley Beacon. There follows a beautifully boggy moorland run across Blubberhouses and Round Hill moors to Timble Ings. Then, through Timble and back via Swinsty dam head.
Ran steady and comfortably, especially enjoyed the moorland stretches. More of a training run for the 3 Peaks, as well as just enjoying running again pain-free. Finished in 3 hours 32 for 11th place. All in all, a great morning and running with a smile again. Results will be available here.
