Pendleton Fell Race after spending a good part of the morning tracking D, CH and MS in the Matterhorn Ultraks. Some race.
Rough and tussocky once out of the fields. Struggled up the first hill, but reeled in a lot of folk from then on.
Maybe 2nd V60, finished just behind 3rd lady.
Great setting for a fell race - picturesque village, great pub and a stream running down the main street for washing in. Lovely weather too. Glad to have not opted for the Pendle parkrun alternative.
In all the races this year I've been overtaking loads of folk on the downhills but it's always playing catch up after a poor ascent. Maybe that's just what ageing does for you. Somewhat frustrating but what the heck..it's still fun. Nice to be slotting in a lot of races that I've not done before too. That's at least four new ones since mid June.
