 DIARY 2005

February (Saturday 12th)  Launch of first team event 

- Wadsworth Trog Fell Race (20 miles distance including 4,000 feet of ascent.  

    This event is always a very tough challenge for the  runners but this year the weather played it's part. Extreme conditions on the day with a wind chill of minus 15 centigrade. There was concern for some of the finishers, but a shower and hot soup followed by home made cake with a well earned pint of beer soon had everyone smiling again.

     The event has two categories, the half and full race. Peter still suffering from a recent injury chose the half trog accompanied by Tyrone who is still  inexperienced on this type event and was naturally nervous. Tyrone has been steadily building his training mileage and his nerves were short lived as he made his target time with no worries (Top Man). Peter also completed and is now hopefully on the mend.

     The main race also had excellent performances from the team with Garry 3rd overall and 1st Vet (Well done Garry). Neil still showing good form was next, followed by Mark and John. The race was chosen  to gain experience for the team but also to be used as a qualifier for the next long races planned.
