Report from Phil Robinson
Our terrific group of female fell-runners – and their male counterparts – must have had a better offer, so it was left to three elderly gentlemen to fly the black-and white flag at Eldwick. Don’t mention summer wine. We all finished in good spirit, the relentless Antonio announcing that he was off to Skiddaw the following day; I was pleased to finish ahead of Graham Breeze for once.
Results: 1stReuben Mantle (Bingley) 18.27, 63rdPhil Robinson 29.33, 68thDon Buffham 32.10, 75thAntomio Cardinale 41.00.
