Report from Shane Ewen:
After a 9 month self imposed hiatus on health grounds, I returned to the fells this weekend. Steve Robinson and I travelled over to the beautiful Calder Valley for the Midgley Moor fell race. 5 miles with two good climbs, approximately 1,250 feet, the going was good, boggy, windy, and wet, with a pint of milk from the farmer at the finish. The perfect return really!
I took things easy, being a fan of completing races rather than being carted off the moor in an ambulance.
Lots of route choice, bouncing over heather to reduce the level of leg scratching, and a bit of bog hopping. Beautiful views when I looked around too.
Good to be back.
