Report from Colin Best:
I haven’t been around for many fell races so far this year but with the weekend training in the lakes I thought I would give this one ago.
I was a beautiful day and where better to be. Pre race I met up with Tanya Shepherd, Sharon Smith and past member Dale Foster.
The route follows the main route up Buckden Pike, and for those slightly better than me, is largely runnable. This was well and truly rubbed in as was was passed by V70 runner Adrian Dixon keep up a steady run as far as the final climb to the summit. I managed to pass him up the steps. I managed to stay ahead as we headed down only to be passed again on a small climb. I never managed to catch up again. Must train more.
Tanya was doing Blubberhouses the following day so was taking it easy.
