    First, last and everything

    Ok so what was your...
    1. First fell race.
    2. Your last fell race. (Maybe just the last one you did, your last ever or last time you'll ever do it!)
    3. The one race that has everything or means everything to you.

    I know 2 of mine - still pondering the 3rd.

    A RadMac rip-off!
    1. Leg it round Lathkil November 2007.
    2. Blake Fell 22nd January 2022.
    3. Too many to chose from! Lets go LDMT, but it changes depending on the time of year, what I'm focussing on and how I feel.

    1. Carnethy Hill junior race, Feb 1977. [Carnethy Hill Race was the predecessor of the Carnethy 5, and started and finished in Penicuik; seniors went up Scald Law and Carnethy Hill, juniors just did Carnethy Hill].

    2. Longshaw sheepdog trials, Sept 2021. But I hope it wasn't my last ever.

    3. Llanbedr-Blaenafon. I have just realised that not only was it my first AL race (1981), it was also my last AL race (1995).

    Surely Barry White beat RadMac to it anyway?
    Good choice for 3 though!
