Calder Valley on Sunday 11th March 1990

Starts Near a canal, somewhere in Mythomroyd.
Finish: In a football field, somewhere else in Mythomroyd.
Revised course: Now 15.1 miles and 4000 ft.

A suspect weather start to the day turned into very good running conditions, plenty of sun (I had the sun tan on my head to prove it) but the time of year meant that it was not too hot. Whilst conditions were nice and soft underfoot there were very varied surfaces from ankle twisting grassy tufts to small stretches of road and some steep sections. The course also included stretches where one would normally be trespassing.

Although I took my map, there was no need for it as most of the course was well flagged and marshalled. Generally well organised, except there was no water at the watering station by the time I got there.

I've no idea what happened at the front, but a battle was raging for 157th place. I passed many on the downhills, and in turn they passed me on the uphills. But I had the last laugh, as the last two miles were all downhill and I was very pleased with my sub 3 hours, only 17 minutes behind Will McLewin. This was after working on attachment in London where the best hill I could find was the fire escape stairs at the Barbican Hotel!
