“13 miles and 1400ft of muddy moorland ascent with every farmers style we can possibly find for you to jump over”  – oh go on then I’m in.

The Rivington Pike Half Marathon is a very well organised chip timed event with a much larger entry than I had envisaged,  plus great support and marshalling along the main trails.

A full marathon option was also available on the same day but I pretended I hadn’t read that bit.

I finished in 34th place out of 321 finishers, in a time of 1 hour 43 mins.

Highly recommended for giving your trainers that authentic fell running look.
