Report from Bob Foreman
On a glorious morning 213 runners set off up Win Hill in the Hope Winter Fell Race. MAC was represented by Billy Cartwright 2nd place in 44.34, Ben Cartwright 10th in 50.15, Bradley Stone 30th in 53.29 and Bob Foreman 67th in 1.05 41 who made the schoolboy error of following other runners down the wrong track and adding 3/4mile and 150ft to his race making it 7.2 mile!
The race was won by Alex Hinchcliffe U23 of Vegan Runners UK in 44.32 just out sprinting Billy by 2 seconds. The first lady was Helen Thornhill U23 of Buxton 50th in 56.24.
Who said youngsters don't run on the hills?
