    Withins Skyline

    I notice in the calender it states shortened course 5m/800' instead of the usual 7 - anyone know why?

    The shortened course is just for the over 16 category.

    I see - thought there was a shortening of the normal route - apologies for my ignorance.

    Withins last year was my 1st fell race for quite a while so will be interesting to compare this years time to last - should be a bit closer to my times from a few years ago - hopefully anyway.

    Withins Skyline

    How did the forumites go on then, did not see any Fell Pony vests........?
    If there was a prize for number of falls and deepest sinkage into a bog I think I would have won one. Finished looking like a bog monster with a shredded left leg! Was a nice day for it though

    I was surprised no Ponies out today - perhaps they prefer sugar lumps to Curly Wurlies? Was it you getting your knee fixed up after the race? I banged mine too but if it was you it looked like a couple of stitches might have been needed. Perfect day for running today!

    No, I just came straight home and licked it better!
    I'm sure the master said he was coming over for this race, perhaps he has a touch of blue tongue or somthing?

    Met the Master and Amex last Sun at Beefy's Nab and wondered if they'd be around, especially as the Master won a rosette for second best in show last week

    Was planning to do Withins but had a quick trot round Tour of Pendle again at silly o clock this morning with Fellmonster....lovely day for it too. Strange to be slogging up those last 3 climbs again so soon but im sure its worth it!

    Good to meet you last week DT, there was a Pony running today but his vest hasnt arrived yet...im not sure what his forum name is but hopefully he had a good trip (no pun intended)
