Report from Steve Robinson:
On Friday night I was debating whether to do a parkrun the following morning but came across a fairly local fell race on the FRA website. I managed to pursuade Tom Lynch to join me at late notice, so the two of us set off to Barnoldswick on Saturday morning for the Weets fell race.
It’s a fairly low key event as we gathered at registration, Antonio was also in the crowd warming up and he seemed in good spirits after a brief chat.
The Weets fell route is advertised at 5.5miles/1804ft and is a typical AS race whereby there are 2 or 3 good climbs but all your elevation is quickly lost on the following descents. The running conditions were perfect on the moor, with a lot of support too on the route, mainly for the local teams Barlick fell runners and Clayton le moors teams.
Results can be found Barlickfellrunners.org.uk
19th Tom Lynch 45.53
