On a glorious evening, many Keswick AC runners gathered for this short fell race as it is part of the club’s fell championships this year.  The run out is steep uphill on tarmac but that soon gives way to undulating fell going out to the summit and returning the same way, approximately 4 miles.  Such was the speed of Keswick’s lead runner Jacob Atkin that the slower runners were barely off the fell track before he came flying down. He broke the course record by 11 seconds to come in at 25 minutes and 59 seconds.
Lots of other good results for KAC with the men, Jacob, Rob Brown and Harry Bolton, winning the men’s team prize.  Mike Mallin continuing his good season with a V60 win.  The ladies dominated the older age groups:  Louise Brown, on excellent form this season, winning the V50, Lyn Thompson, always good to see her back out on the fell, the V60 and Lesley Malarkey the V70.
