    Alliteration

    Here in Leicestershire we have the Huncote Hash, the Gaddesby Gallop and the Hoby Hop; and I'm sure there are plenty of similar examples around the country. The trend has even crept into fell-running, with Haworth Hobble, Eskdale Elevation, etc.

    I want to start a new organisation: Athletes Against Alliteration. [Except that might remind some people of a former governing body of athletics that the FRA didn't always see eye to eye with.]

    Surely "Aworth Obble" in Yorkshire?

    Almost every fell race on the North York Moors that Dave Parry (RIP) use to organise.

    Blakey Blitz, Carlton Challenge, Gribdale Gallop, Guisborough Grunt, Ossy Oiks, Pinchinthorpe Plod to name a few and my personal favourite Eskdale Eureka.

    Then, moving over to the Lakes you've got the Eskdale Elevation.

    And the Grisedale Grind.
