Chipping Show – 23 August

Chipping Show fell race is the reason for being here and if you want to see some fell running photos pop over to Pauline’s blog. It is a while since I could run fast enough to take photos during a race and still beat the cut-offs. Even without cut-offs this is tough wee race, much tougher than you might expect for a show race. Last year I managed round in 01:30:30 and this year I was about 20 seconds slower which I am quite happy with, along with another Second MV60 although, again, there was only two of us.

This is a real agricultural show, one of the classic Lancashire shows, and full of characters rather than tourists apart from the fell runners who look out of place and draw odd looks throughout the day. It is a good day and highly recommended.
