Keswick Trail Race

Posted: Monday, September 9th, 2013

The next event on our championship was the Keswick trail race on Saturday 7th September. Ten members of Meltham AC made the trip up to the Lake District to compete in this tough fell race. The weather was variable with warm sunshine followed by showers which were quite refreshing during the race.

The whole team produced some great results, in particular Graeme Lee who finish in the top ten. Tina Crowe who managed to get under the 1:30:00 mark on her first run with the club and Dan Wilkinson who put in a strong performance despite twisting his ankle the Tuesday before and broke his target of 1:30:00.
