Compo I remember this race last year. I think you described it as bing more of a fell race. Would you say it was all runnable or are there sections of it where only an 8 stone shepherd from the Wasdale Valley could run?

it is a mix of road fell and trail there is a very steep bit up towards the A635 from Meltham then all down back to Marsden via Wessenden

fab race

First time doing this race, very challenging, fantastic scenery, loved it, hope  to go faster next year 10/10. Those bulls were Highland cattle, luckily they had no beef and let us pass by safely.

Tough but good fun, especially the long run down hill run to the finish line. Will be doing it again next year. Does anyone know were you can get the results from ?
