    Well done all – good result from Matt. This is a nice race and a good intro to Fell running.

    This is a nice event – no frills and a lovely location. Some great runs from OAC members. I didn’t see Sam before but another good run. Matt excellent as ever. Great results all round – but I was hoping to be a few minutes quicker.
    Lovely to see Bob and Don – if you’ve never met them this is the just the event you are likely to find them. Lovely mud, great descents – especially the drop off Stoodley Pike. A great part of the world for running. Also worth trying the Coiners race, and Stoodley Pike fell race.
