Crow Hill ReverseAugust 4, 2011
I’ve been mostly injured since April, but the beginning of July saw me make a steady start back at getting some miles in. Thought it was time to test how mended I am. So I took the legs racing on Tuesday night. The Crow Hills Reverse fell race in Mytholmroyd, organised by Mills Physio with all proceeds to an Ovarian Cancer charity.
The legs made it through without injury, but, did not thank me for the experience. There are normal hills and then Calderdale hills. Straight up a wall of almost death. And straight back down. Almost 5 miles in 54 minutes 16 seconds. 64/71. Quite possibly the hardest, short race I’ve ever done. Fun though! Full results here. A very friendly race, well organised and marshalled and a good turnout in the pub afterwards. One to add to the list of races worth doing.
I reckon I’m sufficiently fit to start making it out again on Wednesday nights for club training.
