The start

The start of a fell race can be a frantic affair. Runners will scramble for position for the first few hundred yards before a natural order is restored and everyone sets a there own pace. at the Ian Roberts Fell Race it was no different. The Holmfirth runner who I am trying to keep up with is Katie Walshaw who won the womens race. We had a good chat after and we have had a few battles in the past. A very worthy winner and it took a good effort to keep up with her.
I think the picture shows the urgency that a fast start brings.


  1. Good photo, great to emphasize you are trying to watch the ground, but also keep your eye on the prize. She looks very fierce!

  2. interesting post....i'm normally at the very back chatting. good to see it from the other perspective ;)
