Calderdale Hike

Saturday 13 April 2019

36.3 miles (58.4 km); 6,234 feet (1,927 m) of ascent

The official ascent details do not seem to be tie up with the conversions: 6,234 feet equates to 1,900 m and 1,927 m equates to 6,322 feet!!!

Starters: 72+1 = 73

Finishers: 70+1 = 71

Retired: 2

First Man: Rory Harris; Stockport; 5:09

First Lady: 6th overall; Sabrina Verjee; Ambleside; 6:24

Ian Challans: 20th; Lincoln; DPFR; 7:25

Steven Jones: Joint 25th; Leicester; DPFR; 8:04

There were also walkers on the long course and a shorter course of just under 26 miles for both runners and walkers. The fastest walker on the 36 mile course was Rick Clarke from Branhall in a time of 9:07. The fastest 26 mile runner was Matt Bennett from Heague in a time of 4:57.

The weather was reasonable - warm at the start but cooling down later and a stiff breeze throughout which always seemed to blowing towards me all day. The dry ground conditions and lack of rain made the running more enjoyable and this was further aided by the good visibility.
