High Cup Nick in better weather
There was a stonking ER turnout for the High Cup Nick race yesterday: something like ten of us. The weather in Penrith had been deceptively spring-like, but by the time Gill and Andy's ER Racemobile pulled into Dufton, the clouds were dropping into the Nick and the wind had become a screaming howler.
In character-building conditions, Derek Hurton pulled off a highly respectable 7th place, while first ER lady home was Gill Douglas, in effortless style. More results will follow soon.
A grand day out, so well done to everyone who braved the conditions, and what a fantastic start to the ER Fell Race Championships.
