A nice little hill race of 6 miles and 1300 feet of climb starting and finishing at Longtown School. Normally well supported by Croft runners, this year, perhaps due to the Magic Roundabout next day, a new out and back route course attracted only Gary G and Tom plus our ‘star turn’ Stacey.
Stacey professes to not really liking hill racing although he would probably be very good at it! He
ran conservatively in a field of 120, including some good fell runners, to finish 8th in 44.33.
Gary finished 60th , 3rd mv60, in 57.09. Tom 93rd 5th mv60 in 64.08. The race was won by Chris Jones of MDC in 40.31 and first lady was Gintare Gaigaliene of Wye Valley in 50.11.
