Scafell Pike Fell Race
4 Eryri Harriers travelled up to this race, the final round in the 'King and Queen of the Mountains' competition (adding up of places in Snowdon, Ben Nevis and Scafell races), which Ali Thomas finished 3rd lady in this year. In the race Nick Fish of Borrowdale won in 54 minutes, I (Iain Ridgway) was 12th in 64 mins, Sarah Ridgway 1st woman in 70 mins, Noel Craine a few minutes behind and Ali Thomas 2nd Vet 40 (I think). In the Jack and Jill competition (fastest couple), Sarah and I were 2nd. Plenty of Pete Bland vouchers to be had. Classic little race, only 4.5 miles but 3000ft ascent, a classic straight up and down.
