Nesscliffe Nasty Saturday 5th

The Nesscliffe Nasty has a new route - it is nastier than the old one. When asked if he approved John Morris said "Excellent, it sorted the fell runners from the speed on the flat brigade". The new route includes a set of steps up to the top of the hill and a steep plunge back down. The climb is exciting as the rock climbers on our left wonder why, and we peer over the 100 foot drop to our right as we climb.A great improvement on the old route.

As you would expect from Oswestry it was very well organised. The course was well marked and marshalled, first aid was in the right place and the tea and food was plentiful and cheap. The results service was excellent, prizes were given out almost before the queue for tea and cakes had dissappeared and copies of the results sheets were passed around while the prizes were being given out. Full marks to Oswestry Olympians.

And the results for Buckley. Five of us turned up: -
Pete Roberts 18th in 38.39 (1st M65)
John Morris 32nd in 41.33 (3rd M65)
Chris Higgins 35th in 42.00
Dawn Urquart 37th in 42.23 (4th lady and prize as senior lady I think)
Rob Mackey 59th in 46.30 (2nd M60)
Fenn Higgins 60th in 46.37 (5th female)

Another good day out. Well done everybody

  1. OK - it was six! Counting was never my strong point.
