Report from Howard Jeffrey:
Great conditions today for the Fountains 10K although everyone deliberating about road or trail shoes. Definitely trail as although the locals described the ‘grimpen myre’ as dryer than usual it was a bit like saying the Atlantic is wetter than the North Sea!
Mark Hall had a storming run to come in second place overall in 36.56 behind the winner Lee Dalton (Nidd Valley) in 35.59. First lady Sharon Barlow (Ripon) in 10th overall in 40.02. I had another solid come-back run in 53rd position in 46.50. Also for Otley, Justina Stringer in 220th in 1.02.17. 295 finishers in the full to capacity race (although 57 No Shows!)
