Ponderosa fell race
4 hilly miles
4th Lawrence Eccles 27:02
The rain cleared and the ground dried, mostly, in time for the race. Apparently the morning was terrible. It was still cold. I wore some sleeves, and a snood, which I know Nigel disapproves of. The same Nigel who wears those tartan shorts. Anyhow, the race went well, but for finishing 4th. Still I got a bottle of wine, although 3rd got 2. The winner got a framed drawing done by the race organiser and wine. Another good feature of this race is that prizes are given as you cross the finish line, so no waiting around. Maybe if the cafe was open there would be a more traditional prize giving.

I'd entered the 20 miler, but due to the poor weather and the 20 mile route being deemed too hazardous by the marshal, they cancelled it and offered us to run the 10 miler instead. In one way that was a relief.
Thrashing horizontal headwind, zero visibility and a lot of hill walking - thank God it was a training run!
I was somehow entered as a Vet40 as well, it made me laugh anyway.
Would still recommend, despite being an absolute beast.
