Hodgson Brothers Relay - results. Men - 2nd : Women 3rd : MV40 - 4th.
The organisers had got this spot on, and full praise to them for managing to stage the event at all. Conditions weren't that bad around the start, but later on, for the original Legs 3 and 4, the rain was lashing down. The revised course was effectively to turn round at Kirkstone Inn, and do Legs 1 and 2 in reverse, avoiding High Street. Following their dominant year in the Championships, Keswick were clear winners for the Men. Ambleside won the Women, with Helm Hill second. Ambleside were also first Vets team.
So now to the UK Athletics Relay at Llanberis....
Firth – a new event, from Buckden. It's partner, the earlier Buckden Out Moor, was a right cracker, and this is up the other side of the valley from Buckden Pike. And indeed it was a class, hard enough, course. A long climb up out of the valley, a veritable slosh across the moors, leaving the drop, the top part rating with the very best of flying descents. then slippy limestone paths, and a long leg home beside the river.
