From John Bottomley:
June 23rd 2018
50miles / 8507ft 80.5km / 2593m Finishers: 220 (unknown retirees & starters)
Ken Sutor 1st 8hr 19 Sally Ford 1st 9hr 44 John Bottomley DPFR 3rd 8hr 45 (there may have been other Dark Peak Fell Runners taking part but the results do not show details of club membership)
The PB50 is run with the PB100 with the latter running the same course twice. It was quite hot: I drank more on this race than I have ever drunk on a race. My wife marshalled on 2 CPs & said both almost ran out of water twice. The race is just the Pennine Way from Malham up to Penyghent, the 3 peaks route round to Horton, then the Pennine way & Gordale Scar to Malham. Although Penyghent up & down was packed with 3 peakers, the rest of the route was pretty quiet.
Nothing else to note really apart from the CPs having better range of food than I have seen before, ie. a lot more than just jelly babies, soreen & flapjack!
