Weekend Snippets

Great Langdale Christmas Pudding 10k, 12th December 2009.

Only one harrier made the trip to Great Langdale for this festive, and i assume hilly, 10k in the Lake District. Well done to Barry Allman, finishing 120th in 46:28.

I have had word that the conditions were both hilly, with over 1000 FOC over the distance, crisp and occasionally slippy. Barry went for the plan of a steady start, due to a recent virus, injuries, colds, and dental work, (cheers for the gory details Barry) but managed to put in the effort over the last couple of k for a good finish. A prize of a Christmas pudding was gratefully received.
