It’s been a busy weekend! Well done to all our runners who ran the 64th Three Peaks Race. It was John Fortescue’s 21st time running this: happy anniversary, John. Dom Nurse retired at Hill Inn because of injury. Phil Livermore was the first NLFR back in 3.36, five minutes outside our club record but a cracking time; Rose George was the last. Our newest member Adam Nodwell got a significant PB. (Of course we attribute that to the power of the black and blue vest.) (More seriously, well done Adam and welcome to the club.)
All efforts are gargantuan; this is a tough race even for the experienced. Congratulations to all and hope you enjoyed the excellent weather (even though it was a bit soggy underfoot) and the veg stew afterwards. Well done too to NLFRs Mike, Tim, Dave and Jenny for volunteering as marshals.
Our thanks to all organizers, volunteers and marshals of the Three Peaks. With nearly 1,000 entries (although only 760 or so started), this is a mammoth race to organize, requiring careful negotiation with landowners and many other parties. Yet each year it goes on without a hitch (we won’t mention PalletGate) so our thanks to the organizing committee.
