Sunday 8th October

Penistone Hill Country Park
Haworth

OS sheet; 104 SE025364


£4.00 entries on the day only
7miles/1000 feet of ascent

http://woodentops.org.uk/index.php?topic=withins&subtopic=home


Once more this will be my first race since competing in this very event last year!!
That's barring ParkRuns, 'Stanbury Splash', 'Darrington 5', & the 'Trunces'

It's been a slow, under-performing summer,again!!, but it happens!!!
I've run Withins in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, & 2016

Past results
2010; 160/345 @ 59:33
2011; 176/323 @ 1.01:09
2012; 136/302 @ 1.01:32
2013; 178/261 @ 1.03:57
2014; 133/255 @ 59:22
2015; 186/313 @ 1.01:12
2016; 182nd/290 @ 1.03:21

Once again this year, as in 2016, I'll count myself very lucky if I can get under 1.10:00

Ruddy well tell me about. Not just for you, I certainly feel I could have done a bit better this year. Rolling Eyes

I'll admit I didn't enjoy this one

Even heading up, the cloud was low
This is the windfarm at Ovenden Moor (between Halifax & Haworth, as seen from Denholme)


Based at Haworth West End Cricket Club (one of the highest grounds in the UK, at 1000 ft above sea-level)

Quite possibly the wettest race of my 8 there
Started right at the back, as I felt I deserved to be, so had to pass a few
I fell/found holes in the peat/deep patches more times in this race, than in all the (Woodentops) races I've done
One hole, even found me fall in it twice, as I didn't pull my foot out far enough, & sat down to my waist in wet water-logged peat

If the top half is this bad, you can imagine what the crust was like on my legs...........................






Provisionally  256th/357 @ 1.10:32

Better than I expected on the time, given the falls, & how I felt
Plus, it's the furthest I've ran since their 'Stanbury Splash' back in January

A few photos, I'm just visible, at the start
Plenty of girls for 'Gunner'
'79' is Emma Clayton (Leeds City) who was a British U-23 champion
