Two Lads fell race – 17 June

Tonight saw the Two Lads fell race run over Winter Hill under a sky darkened with smoke from a nearby moorland fire. 5.25 miles with 900 feet of climbing it is a classic short race with runnable climbs and very fast descents starting and finishing at the Bridge Inn in Horwich. Pauline & I were marshalling and so were able to thoroughly enjoy the race!

  1. Hi Ian, wished I'd known this race was on, would have loved to have had a bash at it. I'm not very fit yet but it would have been fun. Let me know if there is another one planned.

    Loved the pic of Joss, very evocative, thanks.

  2. Hi Duncan, I don't think there is anything similar until this time next year. Ironically, there are two in June each year - "Hendersons's End" & "Two Lads". The FRA calendar is the best place for details.

    Glad you like the picture of Joss - I'll probably never take anything like again!
