Report from Andrew Robertshaw:
This is an excellent short, fast race a couple of miles down the Leeds Liverpool canal from my home town of Silsden. So a perfect warm up and down along the canal, with a flat out 4 ish miles in between, passing the Pinnacle on Farnhill moor twice.
The race in some ways in similar to the Chevin Fell race, with a steep road section to start and finish with good off road paths in between, the difference being the 800ft of ascent is split into two climbs. A perfect course at for the fell racing novice.
Results: 1st Sam Watson, Wharfedale H. 1st Lady Carol Morgan, Nidd Valley 32:54, I was 10th, 28:29, Antonio Cardinale 116th 1:03:50 & it was also good to see the hoards of juniors, (over 100 racing in the various races).
