Haworth Hobble

Probably couldn't have had better conditions, cool and overcast with a slight breeze and after a start that was too fast to be sustained I settled in behind Tony Wimbush (who would end up 1st V50, 8 places and about 10 minutes in front of me) and managed to stay there until just before the climb to Heptenstall. No route finding problems this time and managing to eat and drink early enough made a huge difference. Finished in 28th place, 4th V50, 47 minutes faster than 2005 in 4:50:42.

Managed to achieve the 45-60 minute improvement I set myself, with a sub 5 hour time, after a 72 mile week so that including the race and the previous 8 days I had run over 100 miles with about 15000 feet of climbing. Pleased with this result.
