Alport on Thursday 19th August 2004

Another good turnout with quite exceptional weather. A warm and humid but dry evening soon turned black when a large thunderstorm swept in from Kinder. The leaders just managed to get into the forest above Snake as the rain and lightning started. Unfortunately, for those still on the moor above Combs Rocks things became a little nervy with several lightning strikes onto the moor. Roy not-so-big-Small was soon to be seen doing a 180 and retreating to the woods above Alport to sit it out and others made similar retreats. I suspect that this particular 'obstacle' will remain a talking point of this race for some years.

As for the race itself, the organiser managed to fend off his younger rivals and win for the nth year. The race remains a classic, demanding skills in ascent, descent, flat fast running and heather bashing - a descent memory of the route also helps as many discovered when entering the woods at the end to discover a vast felled area and missed the path back to the finish.
