Wind, rain and mud were the order of the day on Penistone hill with a healthy (or unhealthy) amount of ice
making any fast roady sections a potential bone breaking hazard. The Stoop’s mandatory kit of a Santa hat can
sometimes be a little bit annoying, flopping around as you run, but on Sunday I’m sure it did add an extra layer of warmth in the icy
head winds on route.
Well done to Ben Clare our only entrant for taking on the penultimate race of the Woodentops era with Dave and Eileen heading into retirement after the forthcoming Auld Lang Syne on new Years Eve.
Ben completed the 8km m250m assent course in 56th place in a time of 40:14.
WELL DONE BEN
