agc Summit 300m above start point so much walking/marching up hill rather than running - but fast down: 37:11 to the top (5.9km) and 17:00 down. My garmin recorded the distance as 9.7km.
Path very narrow at points on downhill section making it hard to pass others - not that I did a lot of that but some people are more cautious downhill than I am.
Weather great. Nice, friendly location and a nice size. The view from the top of the mt looked good from the brief glances I got. I'll have to walk the route just to be able to take it in properly. Unaffiliated 54:10 55.81
Hanneke Phew, that was tough, because stupidly enough I had had lunch an hour before the start. That on top of it being rather hot made for some leaden legs and indigestion all the way round and beyond! Anyway, a lesson learnt! Excellently otganised run with tea and cake and sandwiches afterwards and a nice t-shirt! Pitty I did not pre-register, as I would have had a small one in stead of a large one, whihc will end up as a pyjama :-) FELL PONIES, Black Mountains MBO 1:00:00 1:05:10 47.55

Running Fish well organised, 'mild' fell race, ideal to tempt newcomers away from the black stuff, a credit to those who put this one together. quads burning after ras beca 2 days ago, and hamstrings felt like on the verge of cramp all the way down the descent. so not able to push as hard as would have liked, but an enjoyable end to the weekend nonetheless.
