Knowing the hill well I was not concerned about getting lost during the race. I set of steady not worried about other runners. It became clear on the first decent I had worn the wrong shoes with many runners flying past me. However I soon caught them up when it came to the climbs on the back end of the race. When I came to the last climb up the big end I remember Micheal toms ( on a previous run) telling me to take a different line. I was a bit unsure but decided to use it, and I can tell you I shall use it again I definitely gave me an advantage on the other runners going straight up. I finished 9th feeling good and strong. Note to self, next time mudclaw”.

Andy Heys also ran and came in 61st place with a time of 2.00.05. Helen Leigh who is training for the forthcoming Coast- to Coast Event had a really good run to finish 2nd Woman overall in 1hr. 48.15 and commentedwanted to get a last hard run in before the c2c and this was definately that! Pretty much the tour of pendle minus the easy bit! I felt a bit sluggish as been training hard so just did my best to slog round and was second female. Not my greatest run but hopefully a good set up for the four day coast to coast adventure race this Friday!
