Grindleford on Thursday 18th June 1987

I shall always remember this race for the finish! After- Frank took us on a recce before the AGM I thought the course had the right recipe for a classic short fell race- Despite being in no shape to race and having run the Dearne Way Relay the previous evening, how could I not run.
The pace was fairly swift from the gun with ex-international Roy Bailey making the climb up through the woods to Tegness quarry look very easy- I tried in vain to stay in contact and paid for it dearly, dropping into the thirties as we approached the top of the hill- A sprint across the marshes to the Longshaw estate brought the chasing group back into sight. The boulder sprint down Padley gorge must be more suited to a ballet dancer, in fact some of the runners I passed may have been. A concerted effort along the banks of the Derwent before the plunge pulled back a few more places, but not enough to catch that old goat, Harmer. I wonder what the finish would be like in times of flood!?
At the sharp end, Andy Moffatt and Stuart Rochford had very good runs to finish 3rd and 4th and with newcomer Gary Picken finishing 9th, we had 5 in the first 9. 155 turned out for this inaugural race - not bad for a week day evening.
