Having run this race last year I fancied another crack at it. The FRA calendar had the date wrong but 1 found out about the correction and headed for Slaidburn... only to find no sign of the race and the supposed start in only 30 minutes time. Whilst disappointedly heading for a consolatory ice cream, I noticed a poster... advertising Hodder Valley Show... in DUNSOP BRIDGE. Not only had the date changed but I didn\'t know the venue had changed as well (this too was in the FRA mag. but 1 hadn\'t read that far).
After the 5 mile drive there was half a mile run to registration and back but I made it to the start line with seconds to spare. The race itself was far better than last year. A real cat. A on smooth grass and bracken slopes complete with water splash at the bottom. The steady start paid off and a good time was had by all Dark Peakers (me!).
