Eight Eden Runners & one guest turned up for the inaugral January Jape at Askham today although Julia arrived a little late for the start having run all the way from Penrith!! The runners were treated to a beautiful day with clear blue skies & spectacular views of the Lake District in full winter garb from the top of Heughscar.
Racing appeared to quite competetive with route choice playing an important part in the final results and it was not without incident. Alan Marshall suffered a self inflicted ankle injury after kicking himself ( I always thought this was a figure of speech rather than a physical act) and Craig drawing blood after 'skating on thin ice!' (photo above)
The overall winner was Mark Bissell with Gill Douglas first lady. (Full results on the discussion group thread.)
Thank you to all those that turned up. Ian
