Many thanks to Stainland Lions for a great new race to add to the calendar.
On Saturday Chris Williams ran in the 15 mile Good Shepherd fell race, starting in Mytholmroyd. A much stronger field than the previous year showed as Chris finished 5 minutes quicker than last time around and 17 places lower in 22nd. Misty conditions on the moors didn’t help and a missed turning on London Road cost some time and effort! A great route though taking in Stoodley Pike twice from different climbs.
