Race to Remember

Race to Remember 5 Mile Trail Scorton 28th Sept

This race takes place in a very scenic area in the Trough of Bolland and comes with a real sting in its tail with a very steep climb at 4 miles and is not for the faint hearted. The race was won by SamHarrison of Bowland in 34.51 with our first counter Paul Muller in a brillliant 5th despite a toilet stop and won the O/55 award. I was next in 22nd a minute slower than last year but won the O/65. Brenda Hesketh was 24th lady and was well pleased to complete the race,Gill Smith despite a cold won the FO/60 award and enjoyed the race.
