Saturday 6th April – Buckden Outmoor Fell Race

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.

Highlights included seeing a turkey on one of the allotments, some out of date wraps in the goody bag and having to get up extra early due to the clocks changing. Won by…
