Sunday April 3rd – Blubberhouses 25

Report from President Podd: Six Black and Whites met up in Norwood Village Hall to test themselves on the LDWA Blubberhouses 25 on a fair day that improved to sun later. This was the first race I have done for ages, that I didn’t have my coat on – nice change. Tom and Kirsty Pomfrett went off ahead and had left before we finished. Sara R, Sarah F, Liz F and I ran together. I was happy not to race, but have a social run as I’m saving myself for the Fellsman in a fortnight and wanted to test out my legs. Luckily they worked well and niggles seem to have stopped. A lovely run with lots of laughs, chat and slippery mud . The food was up to it’s usual high standard. Home made cake at Rocking Hall and a full buffett below Beamsley Beacon, which set us up for the Round Hill bogs that tried to eat Sara.

We finished in 5 1/2 Hrs. These LDWA events are so friendly and well organised – and all for £7. Results will appear here

    Awesome day out, definitely worth running just for the spread at the checkpoints!
