3rd race in 5 days, after Dumbarton 10k and Dallam Dash 10k on Thursday and Saturday.

The route followed a tarmac road for the first 800 metres before branching off to climb across fields to reach a flat shelf on the side of Ingleborough. Just around the halfway point we turned and descended through a tricky section of limestone which I should have recognised as part of the Yorkshire Three Peaks route.
I was briefly caught by a Settle runner around this section but managed to find enough on the run back to hold off any further challenges. I finished the 12.4 km route in about 56:51, for about 6th place.
Ellie completed her longest run since London Marathon 2011, to finish in just under 70 minutes.
