Castleton Fell Race – 10 June 2016

The rain started at 4pm and by the time we got to Sheffield the roads were flooded.  Not looking good for a run up Lose Hill, then along the ridge to Mam Tor then back down to Castleton.  The grass car park was closed due to the risk of all the cars sinking in to it.

The course was not too bad and this was Mark Webster’s first time at this race and only his second fell race (his first being only 4 days earlier at the trunce).  Mark also raced at Sandall Beat 2 days earlier. Continue reading

Cape Wrath Challenge – Susan Forbes Report

If anyone had told me I’d take part in the Cape Wrath Challenge a year ago I’d have laughed. It’s a unique week of running events held each May in the North West Highlands on the tip of mainland Scotland. Races include a 10K or Half Marathon Road Run round Loch Eriboll, a 10k Two Loch trail run, a 6 or 10 mile Around Durness tough Trail, a fancy dress beach run . . . and the Marathon which takes you to Cape Wrath Lighthouse, the most NW location on Mainland UK. Involves two boat rides across the Kyle and 2,4000 feet of climbing. Alongside is a full programme of social events like a pub quiz, dance practise to live music, buffet and a final night presentation meal and ceilidh. Fantastic week, brilliant location, superb beaches and no midges! www.capewrathchallenge.co.uk

Monday morning’s race- shower, skins & base layers to keep warm, porridge & tea1 for fuel, wellies & waterproofs for after my first 10k as part of The Cape Wrath Challenge -round Loch Eriboll along the NW Highlands coast road past beautiful Ceanabeinne beach uphill back to Durness. Eek!
First race- I might have been last but I ran & smiled the whole way & got Doncaster Athletic Club on the list!
Tuesday morning. Second race of my Cape Wrath Challenge – 5mile Two Lochs Trail – cold & foggy but stunning scenery, rough underfoot, steep & slippery but fun! Stopped to take photos with Martin the Marshall! Continue reading
