AD really enjoyed it. Not a bad time and position 22nd, considering I've hardly run since the GNR. Eden Runners 1:05:27 1:05:27 1:05:27 64.12
Boingy First ever trail race, so a new experience for me. Found it hard going, went over on both ankles, and a bit shaky on some of the downhill stretches. Absolutely caned it over the last couple of miles on flatter terrain ! Garmin time logged. Leamington C & AC 1:06:33 1:18:40 1:18:40 52.77
C-Cat 1st trail race *boing* ankles just about survived - really need to work on the mountain goat decent technique but the views... Northbrook AC, Warwick Uni Triathlon & Road Cycling Club 1:05:35 1:22:33 1:22:33 56.63

Dogtanian Excellent race. Didn't push hard on the up and had lots of energy once the trail levelled out. 119th / 290. Delamere Spartans 1:18:11 1:18:11 1:18:11 52.44

happy little vegemite Hard after the day before, but glorious! Racked my ankle at 2 km (again!), very uncomfortable but kept going as this has seemed to help in the past, and did today. Brilliant day, again. Unaffiliated 2:01:00 2:01:00 2:01:00 38.12
julbags Really enjoyed this, my favourite course of the Lakeland Trails so far.  Surprised myself too, haven't been able to put in much in the way of long runs lately so thought I would struggle. Unaffiliated 1:33:39 1:33:39 1:33:39 49.37

Lisrun Took this pretty easy because of my ankle. Managed to fall over and grazed my knee but no other damage. Quite a tricky rocky course up yo 5K. I preferred the second 10K (even though that's is where I fell ! :-)) 100 Marathon Club, Elvet Striders, North East Marathon Club 1:29:38 1:32:53 1:30:00 1:32:53 52.48

Stepford Wife First of G's courses I have actually managed to run all the way round so it can't've been that hard ;-) Very nice course. Slightly too much boring track at the end but the other paths after the YHA were excellent. Tricky in places, couple of dodgy downhills and past Lanty's Tarn where I haven't been since I nearly sledged into it. Great stuff all round. Really struggling by the time we reached Claire but was determined to plod on. Beat all the women so it can't have been that bad ;-) Fell Runners Association 2:00:29 2:01:24 2:01:24 38.34
thesteadygroove Great to be back in the lakes again. Superb race with a bit of everything, no time to settle as you hit the hills straight away. Really pleased with my time, I love this terrain!!!!!!!!!! Northbrook AC, Fell Runners Association 1:13:07 1:13:07 1:13:07 56.34
ThorntonRunner Thoroughly enjoyed. First ever trail race. Ran out of steam a bit towards the end - possibly went off a bit too fast, but then, no experience of pacing this type of race. Unaffiliated 1:15:00 1:15:00 1:15:00 60.07
