03/08/10 Bradwell Fell Race - from Scott Gibson

4 miles / 750'

While on a climbing trip to the Peak District I decided to do the Bradwell fell race. Most of the village turned out to watch and the traffic was stopped on the long initial road section, a big occasion for the village!

The start was FAST, and I knew not to try and keep up and this paid off as I picked off a few places on the main ascent up through the forest onto the top of the moors. A nice section of grassy off-road running followed by a very long rocky track leading down which was unpleasant on the feet. A better bit of rough descending led back to the final run in along the track and a loop of the huge playing field.

There was a really good atmosphere it was a lovely evening. Worth doing if you are down that way.


(New North Yorks race on Tues. and Steel Fell (Lakes) on Wed, let me know if you wish to car share for either race.)
