3rd Time lucky

Dark & White Rab Mini Mountain Marathon round 3 Macclesfield Forrest.

After being postponed twice due to snow, we finally got to do this event. After two whiteout wipe-outs we had perfect conditions, blue skies and glorious sunshine.

It was good to get out at last, for our first run in the Peak this year. The conditions were perfect, excellent vis and firm ground. The nav was quite easy, just a matter of following the footpaths so it was down to route choice and who could run the fastest....... Which was not us.

We finnished 58th of 87 overall and 5th of 6 in our class.

A good day out, somewhere I had never run before, in beautiful sunshine. What more could you want?
