    The first time I did the race, I stood on the track at the start and asked a Pennine runner which way we started. He pointed up the bank. Someone shouted go, I was at the side of Si Bailey, I was within 10m of him at the top. Then he had gone. No one ran the bank to the top.
    A quote,

    Can I post your excellent photo of my desperate grimace on Facebook (with acknowledgement, of course)?

    The results are also out very quickly. I notice that in my age category (55), the first female was well ahead of the first male. Ali Keates needs weights attached to her legs, it's not fair on the rest of us when someone as light as her is doing fell races.

    there was a fella taking photos at the stile on top of Mount Famine - anyone know who/if they're online? I'd like to see If I looked 'good' as I leapt it, but I probably just look like a sack of shite, as per...

    There was also a guy called Tony Ryan, I think, taking photos. I don't know if he posts them anywhere though. He was probably the one on Mt Famine and then he walked down to the bottom of Dimpus and back up again.
