One thought on “Monday 27th May – Austwick Amble Fell Race

  1. What a shame that the Austwick fell race clashed with the Ilkley Trail . A good short report by Sara R. that as well did a strong race finishing in 1.25 . Caron R. did well this 8 miles of this tough fell race in 1.19 , a brilliant time to do . Also my friend Donald did an excellent fell race in 1.29 . Well done all .
