Great result Chris! Keep all the hard training going, it's certainly working. Only 90 secs and you'll be beating Damon, and then he'll be regretting starting you on this 1 quid challenge !

Thanks Charlie. Yes I was pretty pleased with the run. In fact only 3 folk passed me from Scald Law to the end, and they were Adrian Davis, Manny and Nige. I passed Tom Smith twice and passed Angela Mudge a few times, but she got the better of me on the climb up the gully.

Still, not bad to get 4 Westies all sub 56:30. Not sure that's ever happened before!
