—Heartbeat Hobble Fell Race – YKH Club Run.

A soggy and boggy 7 mile jaunt across the Moors of Heartbeat country at Goathland.
A good turnout with some new faces to the fell running scene from the club, hopefully not too put off by the copious amounts of liquid sunshine.

Hannah Johnson reports:

“Under the relentless Yorkshire rain, I tackled the Vale of York 10-mile race on Sunday 17th March. Having only decided to take part in the race the Monday previous I decided to also run and go for a PB (something I’ve never done before!) and luckily my good friend Alan Wilkinson said that he would be my pacer!! Despite the rain, Alan’s strategic pacing led me to clinch a personal best time of 1:28 which is a 8 minute PB from my Yorkshire marathon 10 mile race and a 3 minute PB from snake lane! Amidst the downpour, the spirited cheers from the spectators provided a boost of morale, fueling my determination to push through.
Aside from the PB achievement (something that running has never really been about for me) what I love in these events is the supportive camaraderie among fellow runners and the encouragement from the sidelines – eye of the tiger being blasted from one of the farm houses was a real win. All in all a fantastic day!”
