Back o' Swinsty

It's been three runs in three days for me and Stef. On Sunday we had a run up the Beacon in the evening with an added loop over the moor. On Monday evening we ran out from home to Bolton Bridge on the Dales Way (I've never seen the footpath so muddy as is it at present) and back over Pike Haw and through the golf-course. Then, last night we met Martyn, Helen and Dr Mark from over Harrogate way at Swinsty Plantation for an eight mile trail run Martyn calls 'Back o' Swintsy'. It was a muddy, midgey, muggy run and far too runnable for me but we all enjoyed it. We saw around six common sandpipers on the dam on the way back before retiring to the Hopper Lane Hotel for beer and an absolute frenzy of crisps, nuts and pork scratchings!
