    Sounds like a tough little race - how does it compare to the Callow race in July?
    thanks andrew

    doesn't visit all the listed checkpoints (e.g Checkpoint 3 at 430940). Could this explain the discrepancy in the distances? On the other hand the grid reference for Checkpoint 5 (Burway Hill) seems rather odd: is it really half-way down the hillside?

    I ran it when it was a champs race in 2006, It was won in 42:33 which is outside 10 mins per mile - I don't believe that the top guys are running that slowly on what is a very runnable route. Course might have changed since then I guess.

    I did it when it was a champs race as well, and I think those checkpoints are about right. (Checkpoint 5 - SO444940 is right on the summit of Burway Hill).

    It was definitely longer than 4 miles, though. Anquet makes it about 6 miles and almost 700m ascent.

    I see you are sufficiently uninjured enough to start pinning a number back on . See you at Pendle?

    Re: Carding Mill Canter

    Well done Tim, hope you can hold your form over the season as you're in my fantasy fellrunning team.

    Rodder, dunno what's up with me. Re-injured my butt falling over at the last Dash In The Dark, since then I've had a cold, conjuctivitis & generally feel crappy all the time. I love my training, but I've probably had 3 runs I've enjoyed in the past 2 or 3 weeks. Maybe I've got a virus or just need a good long rest.

    I sometimes have difficulty getting to races as my wife works every other weekend & I look after the nippers.

    Bloody hell,if you were a dog they'd have put you down.
    I find some seriously long zed sessions often does the trick if i feel under the weather....in fact i often use this tactic even if i'm feeling fine
    Take care,see you soon


    ps.vit c and iron might help
