Titterstone Clee Fell race.
Not done since 2012. Shame. It'd be a regular run if it was closer than the 1h 15 or so drive.
Puts up a good case for being a proper fell race. Straight up and down a hill. First 1/3rd to half is pretty much choose your own line but then it gets down to a choice of one or two obvious trods slightly contouring round to the summit cairn. For me it was pick somebody to follow, preferably with yellow shirt who I thought knew a good way. I chose Andy Davies. Was a good choice.
For Henry. He had a different tactic. Run off the front ahead of the 2h:33m marathon runner - Paul Jones (who knows the best lines) and 68min HM and GB mountain runner Jack Wood (who didn't know the lines but followed Paul before out sprinting him to the line). No, he scrambled across the boulder field and let 8 people go past. Guess it was too late to pull anything back as it only a 20 minute run. School boy error springs to mind.
Still did better than me though in 9th. I was minute down on my last effort and 20th place which is very poor.
