Haworth Hobble

14th Mar 2015

Distance: 32m

Climb: 4400ft

In the week leading up to this years Hobble, Davina Raidy posted on Facebook that her running partner for the race had to pull out, so she was in need for someone to take their place. Within the hour Davina had two lads squabbling over who would run with her. Within the next hour Scott Sadler (Me) & Jason Craven had formed our own Team and persuaded the Race Organiser to let us have a late entry. Sorry Davina!!

A few days later we were on the start line and raring to go. Davina had paired up with Richard Harrison so everyone was happy. Jason and I had agreed to try and take it easy and enjoy the run. None of us had run an ultra since last Summer and we were both still complaining about having a cold. The usual excuses I know but it helped us stick to the plan and enjoy the day.

The race was great, perfect running conditions, excellent support with great food and drink at the checkpoints (including Talisker whiskey and jam doughnuts at 20 miles), and paced just right for a fast few finishing miles.
