The ‘running boom’ may well be over but the popularity of village fell races continues to grow. Grindleford is always the best attended and it remains so with an incredible 409 lining up for this 4 mile race including 57 Dark Peakers. The weather helped, warm and sunny, as does the scenic course although the narrow start and climb can make it slow and physical in the early stages. Still, the views were good and the river crossing to the finish field refreshing as usual.
Personally the race was hard as I somehow managed to strain both calves on the climb and suffered from there to the finish.
