Being only 30 minutes from the office, I couldn’t miss this super little, AS 7Km 340m , evening fell race.
Not expecting 130 runners, the organisers struggled to process everyone as they attempted to trial some new chip timing kit. As a result the start was delayed until 7:15.
This was a classic, brutal up-down fell race. The 340m ascent, through the woods and fields, to the summit of Masson hill only eased only occasionally.
A short field section on the summit preceded an insanely fast descent from above the Heights of Abraham back down to the A6.
