Carenthy Weekend in the Mourne Mountains of Northern Ireland
Donard Commedagh Race
31st March 2007

Rob Hope leading
The winner, Rob Hope of Pudsey, in the lead. He had taken a different line off the hill to Rob Jebb and the gamble paid off
Rob Jebb
Rob Jebb in second place and at this point he still thought he was leading not having seen Rob (Hope) sneak past !

Angela Mudge on her way to winning and breaking her woman's record

Adam Ward chasing a Dark Peak runner

Steven "The Cap'n" Fallon having his usual fast descent

..while just behind him was Jon Ascroft showing remarkable poise on the rough going

Jill Mykura finished 6th woman but wasn't far behind 3rd.

Unlike at Carnethy 5, Malcolm Patterson let Angela beat him this time, probably because Angela was having an outstanding run
Second woman
Second woman and current British Champion, Natalie White of Bingley

The one and only John Blair-Fish !
