Silver How Uphill Race
Tuesday 16th July – 7pm start at Tweedies
Please park elsewhere in the village – not at Tweedies!
Food (probably chips) will be available after in the bar
The club’s annual red-line, lactic burn up is back with a different course and format. This year for the first time it will be a mass start affair on a shorter course that the winners could well see off in under 15 minutes. Tear yourself away from the comforts of Tweedies to line up outside the bar. Once away, tarmac and vehicle track give way to a traditional Lakeland walled path (think assault course) before the fell is reached and the gradient steepens. Only the strongest will run this bit. The steepness eases as the summit comes into sight, but you are not done yet. The final cruel ‘wall’ to the top gives a final chance to overhaul your rivals before a collapse at the summit and a short jog down to the bar.
The course will be fully flagged.
Juniors aged 12 and above can compete at their parents’ discretion.
Help will be needed with results and gates on the night – I’ll firm this up nearer the time.
The men’s and women’s winners will be awarded the most beautiful trophies to adorn their mantle piece for a year to follow.
Well done to all who ran. Results here
