Turner Landscape fell race – 12 August

An English Championship counter on only the third running of this race and the biggest field, by far. This is one of a handful of races I marshal on each year – somebody has to and it is great way to “give something back” to a sport and a community I love. This race is a bit special because it is heavily supported by people who live in the valley and I think this adds to the atmosphere of the race. Joss was marshalling too and while he managed down for the prize giving I was still at the Dow Crag check point. The race starts and finishes at Turner Hall Farm and there are reminders everywhere that this is, very much, a working farm.
