Corndon Three Peaks

Race Reports

The Corndon Three Peaks (for the three Croft runners who peaked long ago!) saw Tom, Gary and Guy set off with 70 others, making for the top of Corndon. Even the first few hundred yards on a metalled track had us puffing, and the long pull to the summit exposed us to the fierce south westerly wind, taking away what little breath remained. From there on the climbs were mostly steady rather than steep, with fast grassy descents, the last of which took us back down the steep paths of our initial ascent to the finish. Tim Davies won, in 45.43, I was some way back in 51st (62.46), with Gary 55th (63.55) and Tom 64th (71.44). My excuse was age and the steep climb, G and T (maybe they had consumed some sort of tonic?) had run the Kymin fell race the day before, completing around 3,000ft of climb over the weekend.
