If you think the first two miles of a six mile race being along an old railway line doesn\'t sound much of a fell race you would be wrong. The two miles of speedwork was followed by a steep slog up Torside and then a long descent back to Padfield. This was the first running of this Ted Woodhouse devised course and is well worth a visit next year. Afterwards you can wander round the Padfield Plum Fair and buy... plums (well what did you expect?).
As for the race itself. Phil Crowson had his moment of glory along the railway track before the serious stuff started and Andy Trigg pulled away from Mark Hayman to record a clear victory. Flying Phil faded fast but just held off the followers. Glossopdale just nicked the team prize by two points but had Simon Boume been in DPFR colours instead of his new home, Altricham it would have been a clear DP victory.
