This is a new race this year, organised by Trawden AC and it was just a bit of a tester. It is 26.2 miles with 4,495 ft of ascent and similar to the Yorkshireman. Next year this race will be on the 22nd September 2019 under the guise of The Lancashireman!
Tim Piggot set off at a steady pace which he maintained throughout the race and took the victory. John Boothman surprisingly found himself in second place, but he had to battle as it is a while since he ran such a distance.

In this event, individuals were running for their schools rather than their clubs, but it was nice to see Barlick juniors out there showing off their fell running prowess.
First home in the Y7 race was Jacob Reeday and no victory was ever more deserved. He has had a cracking season and has produced some great performances and he did so again in this race, not only winning the race, but doing so with over a margin of one minute over the chasing pack. And that is not to belittle that chasing pack - it contained some very good junior runners.
