    Lots of fun had by all today by the looks of it, especially the lass at the back who had an impromptu look around Hag Dyke before i could get her on the right track. The front end was fast, the last runner wasn't over the scar before Simon Bailey came back down it. Good run from Tom Adams in 2nd with MMB in 3rd, all suspiciously well clear of Tom Addison at Hag Dyke. Vic came through 1st L in 15th overall. Tindersticks looked to have picked up a lot of places on the way down, good run mate.
    Luke Appleyard (Wharfedale)- quick on the dissent

    It's a great race: some fast running, hands on knees climbing, rocky bits, groin deep bogs, friendly marshals and organised by a top Yorkshire fell club - and all in 4 miles.

    Thanks to the organisers for a great race, with a record turnout too. I bet those at the sharp end were there to recce it ready for the championship race next year.

    My third time at this race (never done a race so many times!) and it's close to becoming one of my favourites. Never ran it in such clear conditions too.

    Dare I ask what 'MMB' stands for? Ha

    Great to meet the legend that is fellephant on Whernside. What a lovely day - thats why we do it. Bunch of fools meet in a field, run up and down a hill and it makes them happy.
