    Did he urban nights race.. 10 miler around 7 billy hills in Sheffield.. I was last... Ran 12.5 miles.. Good session got lost in manor top.. Always fun... Had everything from run forest run.. To knees up... But the worst was when an old guy pointed out 'there's that guy again'... So I checked my map and righty enough I was going back the wrong way...

    Beautifully crisp and clear (when one got above the cloud) on ilkley moor last night. A short run and not a fast one either but a lovely evening out and a bit of an adventure.

    Me and my mate and fellow BG attempter Andy ran up Hartfell (806m) tonight with head torches, it was a bit bleak on the tops with low cloud and wind, despite us knowing the route well we had ajob finding the fence that leads to the Trig point on the top in the low visibility.But we eventually found it, here is a photo of Andy sitting on top of the 5 bargate just before the Trig point so you can get an idea of how deep the snowstill is on the tops.

    Coming back down we had to make a decision on whether to come back on a compass bearing off the corner of the fence or just follow own meandering foot prints in the snow, we followed the foot prints, lower down the snow had melted turning the path into sheet ice making it a bit tricky Andy took a fall but no harm done. Mind you the dogs knew the way back even in the clag.


    Sorry about the quality of the photo but it was taken with my phone under a head torch.
