Brief report from the lakes from Sean:
Whilst on holiday in the lakes, we stumbled upon the Ambleside Traditional Sports Event and I decided to enter the Fell Race. The race was a straight up and down route. A route which was 2 miles long and 800 feet of climbing in the first mile, including rock climbing at the top.
The winner was Mark Addison from Helm Hill in 13:59. First Lady was Catherine Spurden from Keswick AC in 17:36.
I have been doing very little running in recent weeks and not surprisingly I did not do very well in this race. I came second from last in 35:36 but really enjoyed myself. Would have come last but a lady fell and had a suspected broken leg and therefore recorded a DNF.
This was a great show and a great find. There was plenty to see and do for all the family, really recommend it. I now hope to get back to regular running.
