Race Round Up #10 – 16/12/2018

As we get closer to Christmas, the number of races taken part in seems to drop. However, last Saturday morning whilst some of us were resting ahead of the Christmas party, Rob and Linda headed up to the Forest of Bowland to take part in the Forest of Bowland Trail Half Marathon.
 
Linda crossed the line in 2:38:45 (21st overall and 4th woman) and Rob finished in 2:14:20 (6th overall and 5th man). By all accounts the race was tough due to the inclement weather, so much so that those competing in the full marathon had their race cut short when it was called off and mountain rescue sent in to pick up those still out on the course! Well done to Rob and Linda, a good show of MFR grit and determination.
