Peak Pits Fell Race

well, it's hardly a fell race, but it's certainly always tougher underfoot than any cross country race you'd ever find.  My first race for 6 months + and didn't I know it ! Quite out of shape after xmas but thought I'd better kick start this year as I mean to go on.

Nice to see so many Belper Harriers out and Lewis had a great time doing the under 8's race (just under 1km) and finishing 6th.

Peak Pits Fell Race route - starting top left by road, over to old hostel the down to lake and back up. Times 2!
I finished 8th out of 140 odd and not one single second felt pleasant! Lots of people losing shoes in the mud it was that bad in places. A few nasty climbs too, but loved all 37 mins 11 secs of it!

I used to do a bit of 'cheeky' mountain biking in the woods at one time
