The evening was warm and humid and many of the usual suspects were there - the serial compulsive fell racers like Chris Jackson and Caitlin Rice of Glossopdale Harriers and Peter Bailey of Buxton AC. Last year's winner Steve Vernon of Stockport Harriers was there to try for another win. He broke the course record last year with 42:56. James Scott-Buccleuch and Robert Goulsbra, also of Stockport, were there too. Robert, normally way ahead from the beginning, overtook me well into the race. Eh? What's going on? "I started late."
Coming back down to Earth with a bump, my time was 63:28, position 72nd out of 124 starters.
I managed to take some blurred pictures once again. Blurred pictures during the race are mostly because I was fell racing. I had to throw away loads. :-(
