Rab Mountain Marathon 2011
Charlie Stead (Northern Runner and Northumberland Fell Runners) and Bob Johnston (Dark Peak Fell Runners) came back from a 6 point deficit on day one to win the Elite Category of the Rab Mountain Marathon by 13 Points. Click through for the full results.
The weather was mixed with heavy rain and mist early on Saturday which thankfully cleared up by the time the runners where finishing. Making it a much more relaxing evening putting up tents and refueling in the sunshine. It would of been a different story pitching your tent in the pooring rain after 7 hours of running.
Day 2 was dry but, with strong winds. Underfoot was boggy in places and constantly rough underfoot. Andrew Burton (northumberland Fell Runners and our Inov8 Rep) had a great run in his first Mountain Marathon making the podium with a fine 3rd in the standard class.
Pictures available soon.
Thanks to Dark and White for another great event.
