Saturday started with clear skies and the sun shining on a very autumnal day in the valley of Great Langdale for a re-vamped version of the Langdale 10km Trail Race.
With last years 'wash out' it was great to see 112 runners enter the race with 94 people racing on the day.
Strong performances all round, by all those that attended, with the field spanning 6 generations with the youngest being Josh Peevor , who took the 7th place and the oldest Brian Winder [MV70 1st Place] who put in a strong performance to finish in 77th place.
Bruce Hardy took the win in the end after a battle with Ben Brough who kept the pressure on all the way round, closing the gap in the final stages of the race, but not managing to catch Bruce. Daniel Owen's ran a strong race to finish in 3rd.
Robin Hill, of Chesters by the River, was tickled pink to take the 1st place in the MV60 category, as it was his birthday on that day, Happy Birthday Robin!
Catlin Richardson pushed hard to stay 19 second's in front of the Ladies 2nd place to take the win in a time of 00:53:40 and placed 12th overall, with Elizabeth Earle taking 2nd place in 00:53:59 finishing in 14th place overall, Lyn Thompson putting in a superb performance [racing in the FV60 category] finishing the ladies top trio and taking 3rd place in a cracking time of 00:54:31 and finishing in 18th place overall.
Many other star performances happened during the race.
