Richard Pattinson and Neil Wallace attempted the challenging Teenager with Altitude with slightly different game plans.
Richard went off strongly and ran well all the way round for a well earned 20th place and 2nd vet 50.
Neil being a bit more wary sensibly set off pretty much last and fought his way round the course to maintain his position. (editor’s note: in fairness, he was pacing another runner!)

Myself and Leigh Hinchliffe had a go at the shorter Newlands Memorial Race with the same race HQ but it the benefit of an 11.30am start, and had a grand day out in the sunshine.

Both races are highly recommended.

Lovely quiet valley, super tasty pie and Keswick gold beer on completion included in the entry and a local brass band for entertainment.
