Deep snow & icy conditions failed to deter at least 10 hardy Eden Runners taking part in the Nine Standards race today the 1st January 2010. It was certainly a wake up call for the body with sub zero temperatures & neck deep snow (if you were only 2ft tall or 50cm if you've gone new fangled). As club we was done proud, as they say, with overall 4th & 5th males (Stu & Anth respectively), 1st mv40 (Stu again, possibly a taster of things to come), 3rd overall female (Anja Phoenix, hope you've paid your subs) and Team prizes for both boys & girls.
A special mention must go to Tony, who not normally a fell runner, put in a sterling effort in extreme condtions to finish still with a smile on his face.
What a brilliant start to the New Year! Well done one & all.

Wow, well done one & all. Impressive. I look forward to seeing the results, and the photos in the Herald(!) And Tony, it looks like your off-piste training on Weds night has paid off!
