Alport on Wednesday 20th August 2003

I tried to find when this race was first run and the earliest results I could find were from 1986 when Andy Harmer won in 60.43 and I was 2nd in 60.53 - I remember it being a hard dead-to-head with Andy all the way - a bit like the first Margery where I got the better of him courtesy of a shoe sole falling off!. After the first race when about 15 ran, the turnout was poor, probably something to do with running it in August and sometimes on a Saturday. One year only about 5 turned up and we ran it as a training run.

The race has now established itself as one of the classic Dark Peak fell races along with Crookstone, Cakes of Bread and Margery (thanks to Andy H) and there is a regular field of 25-35 these days. 1991 saw Andy's old course record from 1986 beaten by me in 60.40. The record for the slightly shorter (10-15 seconds) new course stands as 60.27 by Alistair Landels from 1993?. Winning times are usually under 65 with the occasional star turning in a sub-62 minute time. The vets record I assume is Andy's 60.43 - I think he was a vet in 1986! Few women run this race for some reason, so it was good to see Lucy run this year - sorry, I can't find the women's record.
