    Re: Ian Roberts

    I'm with you TC, those tussocks seperate the men from the boys so to speak, and in fell running terms, I'm clearly still a boy!! Glass ankles and no descending skills - I dropped a good 10 places on the last mile

    Still good race - I was a bit frustrated with myself... I spent as much time flat on my face as I did on my feet, but I guess that's part of the fun.

    Also, apologies to whoever was behind me about a mile and a half in who I managed to take down with me on my first fall on relatively flat ground!

    Happy days.

    I'm just putting the finishing touches to a well-crafted race report for the Huddersfield Examiner.

    If anyone has any photos of the leading runners that they are willing to let the Examiner use free of charge (those last three words are crucial) in return for a byline, please let me know ASAP.

    I do have a few pix from Compo, but he managed to miss the winners...

    Anyone doing this?
    A quote,

    "The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall."

    I'm planning on having another go. Is the route the same as last year, or have the reverted back to previous route?

    The course map and instructions are on the Holmfirth Harriers web site, looks to be the same as last year.

    Re: Ian Roberts fell race

    For those of you who ran this last year, you'll be pleased to know that the course is the same - the tussocks are here to stay! All information to be found on our website at http://www.holmfirthharriers.com/eve...erts_2011.html
    It's a bargain at 4 to enter & there'll be plenty of food & cakes afterwards. Bring your waterproofs, as the forecast is a bit iffy at the moment.
    Can we just ask that after the race, everyone takes off muddy shoes before going into the cricket club - we had a few problems last year & don't want to jeopardise future races.
    Hope to see plenty of you there.
    Phil
