Calton Crawl Fell Race

A few of us from the club headed over to a new fell race for us last night - the Calton Crawl which starts in the tiny village just between Ashbourne and Waterhouses. It was only last minute searching through the FRA calendar that lead us to this one as normally we'd all be up at Grindleford Fell Race but sadly this year it wass pre entry only and was fully booked more than a month ago... grrrrr!!!!

All smiles when we saw the amount of food cakes and beer on offer!
The race route takes us on the lesser trodden grassy hills between the Manifold and Dove valleys and has several sharp pulls on it as you can see on the route profile below.

It was a fantastic race and lovely low key atmosphere with one of the best post race beer, sandwich and cake spreads I've seen at any race. Huge thanks to the organisers. Certainly see you next year!
