Meltham AC had another great weekend of running this week. Starting with new member Jeff Miller running the iconic Fairfield Horseshoe fell race on Saturday 11th. The race from Rydal House near Grasmere in the Lake district took place in terrible weather with wind and rain lashing the runners. As Jeff said “serious climbs, fast descents, route finding and tricky terrain; all wrapped up in wind, rain, hail and cloud”. A full report and results can be found here.
