Guisborough Grunt Fell Race - 08/07/15




Paul Cleasby’s Report on the Guisborough Grunt Fell Race.


Tried my hand or more appropriately my legs at fell running tonight. The Guisborough Grunt! More like the Guisborough Grump! Mile 1: uphill start not too taxing and some nice trails to run on.  Mile 2!:  Oh My Word! It was like scrambling up a cliff. Stopped for an angry rest, thinking what on earth is this all about? Breathing back out of the red zone trundle on and on, up and up, and up, and up. Jeez! Hit the top still not yet done 2 miles.

Then flat. Glorious flat. Rain didn't bother me I was just glad of the flat. 2 miles of recovering and regaining some speed and then mile 5 was run on some goat path. They have narrower feet than me. I managed to pass a couple of people who had passed me whilst I was sulking. 
Mile 6: was for the suicidal. Slippery mud. Treacherous rocks and insane downward trajectory. I thought I was safe from being passed but I could hear the footsteps of some Kamikaze thundering down the path. Nutter I thought but then I was determined to keep the gap so I'm not sure who was the nuttiest! Final 200 yards he was gaining so after all that a sprint for the line was necessary. So all in all, an ordeal at times, exhilarating at times, exhausting at times, chuffin dangerous at times and that's a lot of emotion to fit into 6 miles!

Remember, any member/parent/coach can nominate a senior or junior each month. It will allow the club to recognise achievements that are not necessarily catered for by our existing award structure. It could be for competing or volunteering.  Preference will usually be to those where the event has taken place within the month and who are unlikely to win one of the club's annual awards - but this will depend the strength of each month's nominations.
