A profoundly disappointing turn out. However, the four takers all showed talent and enthusiasm. It is reported that more than half the field in the Chapelgill race were over 50. We have to ask ourselves what could we be doing to encourage youngsters to enjoy the sport of hill running.
As usual, we are grateful to Edel, Val and Mark for vital help in course marking, marshalling, time keeping etc. Thanks also to Kate Kitchin (Muddy Patch Judge) and Neil Burnett (International Smile Judge).
Martin Hyman, the 83 year old disorganiser, would like to know whether folk think it is worth continuing to organise the race in future.
