Just two Striders travelled to the lakes for this event. The “Short” by the way is 12.9 miles with 5000 ft of ascent.
What a great race; well organised, very friendly, lovely views (when the clag lifted). Couple of hard climbs but nothing that Emma couldn’t handle. Somehow I got “chicked” 🙂
11th out of 21 in the Darren Holloway Short (or as we named it the Fatty Fun run as we weren’t up to the full race of 21 miles and 9000 feet!)
Just got under 4 hours which was amazing.
Race report… brutal with some more brutal chucked in for good measure and then there was Mellbreak… the last hill.. what a complete HILL that was!!!!! 14 miles and 5000 feet and my first ever Lakeland Fell and AL category! Hills completed in the pictures! And I have to say the friendliest race I’ve done! Woo hoo! Bring on the beer 🍻🍻🍻
Oh and have to say Richard could have done way faster so massive thanks to running with me today! 😀
