Gargrave Cross Country

We had another mad rush to get to a race last night. I'd not done the BOFRA Gargrave Cross Country before although I did pair up the Gargrave Show Fell Race one year with the Burnsall Classic the same afternoon, which made for a hard combination

The Cross Country as the name suggests is not a fell race but best described as a low-key trail race across (in last night's case very) muddy fields. I think there were 29 runners in total and I had a rare top-half finish and won a prize (two cans of lager) as first Male Vet 45 finisher. The five and a bit mile course is completely runnable and made for a hard 45minutes or so. Apart from the midges it was a memorable evening. Results should be posted here soon and photos by Dave and Eileen Woodhead on the Woodentops web-site here
