Winter Hill Fell Race

This was a hard race after three weeks of no racing. To be honest I struggled with the route. I knew some of it but not enough to race it flat out. After checkpoint 3 I ran up the track which was just ice all the way and then couldnt find the trod after getting to the transmitter at the top. After that it was make it up as the two other runners I was with didnt have a clue which way to go either.
The second half of the race saw a large group gather behind two Horwich runners and we just ran to the finish and sprinted it out.
Very slippy conditions and the clag was down.
Good race though and I was pleased with 9th in the end.
Winter Hill. You either know it or dont.
