Fell Running race (Hunters Bog Trot) 33:45  ** 4.5 mi (7:30 / mi) +260m 6:22 / mi
Annual Hunters Bog Trot Race, 6.5km with approx 250m of ascent. Bit of a cold all week had already scuppered any chances of a good run, which I was disappointed with given the training I've been putting in, but churned it out in a decent enough time. A walk and wheeze up radical road slowed me down, and I wasn't able to gain enough on the descents as I'd have liked. Still, a gem of a race and a radiant glow remains, suggesting the sun may have been doing it's job for the first time this year! Grim train journey back to Manchester immediately afterwards killed off any post-race enthusiasm.
