    Litton Birks Loop

    Think i'm going up for this. I'm not really in a fit state to be racing, but this is a really good route. Never actually done the loop, only the ridge and the biiig climb out of the dale. From what i remember the descent is quite fast! Reminiscent of Gt Wherny.
    Can't climb for toffee...

    A great addition to the calendar. A lovely loop,with a cracking descent. Chip butties and beer included in the 5 entry- top cakes to fill up on and it's based at cracking pub too! The sun shone too. Great day.
    A big thanks to the RO and all her team.

    Great race today, brilliant route and a free beer!

    I borrowed a whistle off someone today but forgot to give it back, sorry!

    Let me know if it was yours.

    Great organisation and that unmistakable low key feral feel too. Hadn't really done a lot of quick descending and got some rather uncomfortable diaphragm cramp half way down, thought i was going to have to pull up at one stage! Good to see some familiar faces.
