It’s autumn – back to racing..

Al legging down into Kentmere on this weekends Open5 Race.

First Open 5 Adventure Race of the season, on Sunday up in the Lake District and a good result in a strong field – 1st Vet and 3rd overall.

This was very much a ‘last minute’ entry, as I’ve not been running this year.  I managed to break (then fix) the bike a couple of times which cost a few minutes on the riding stage, but the run went very well.  There’s some damn good biking around Kentmere and Stavley, so a great fun event despite the weather!

It definitely made up for last weekend at the National MBO race up in Newcastle, where I bust the rear mech off my bike 3 miles from the finish and had to run the last stretch home!  More action this weekend with the final race of the National MBO score league just up the road near Brimham Rocks, so we’ll see how that goes..
