Did some mad running around in the dark last night, a small 90 minute score event organised by Calder Valley Runnning club. 90 minutes to find as many controls as you can and get back to the start. Penalty for being late. I'm not very good in the daylight when I can see all the walls, woods, landmarks etc ( those things that help you know where you are) so in the dark was going to be interesting! Headtorch on, map in one hand, GO! We actually did ok, didn't come last which was a distinct possibility, ran 4 miles, giggled a lot and ate and drank in the pub after. It was fun seeing all the headtorches bobbing around in the distance on the fell. Tired legs today.....must stretch and use my my foam roller:)
This year I take on the running of Crow Hill Reverse......
Tuesday 2nd August,
from Mytholmroyd Community Centre, GR011260, 7.30pm, 5m/1000'
£3.50 on the day.

I have been wanting to organise something to raise money for Ovarian Cancer for sometime. I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer age 26, I was incredibly lucky and won the battle ( clearly!) Many women unfortunately don't and I'd love to help fund a charity thats working towards winning the battle more often.
So Mills Physiotherapy will be covering all the costs of the race so all the proceeds will go to Ovarian Cancer Action www.ovarian.org.uk
So if you can run a bit please enter, its only 5 miles and there's plenty of time to train, be great to get lots of people racing, any questions please ask:) This is a fell race so you will need fell or trail shoes or at least super grippy trainers.
