Wirksworth Incline Race

First outing of the fell running season for Chloe and Emily today with the Wirksworth Incline Race.
Chloe in the age 6 to 10 1/2 mile (the third time she has entered stating her age on 1st Jan of the year to be 6, didn't think it was fair her sisters were getting race medals and she wasn't!) finished a very credible 18 from 36 considering she was one of the youngest (well actually 22 from 40 over the line but the 4 front runners accidentally cheated by going wrong, ignoring the marshals (to busy racing to be listening!) which ended up with them taking a short cut).
Em near the back of here field on the 2 mile under 16s course but again one of the youngest and also in the tail end of a chest cough so never going to be on for a fast time! That course is brutal, first mile is all up hill (about 500ft of climb off the top of my head) then turn round and manic blast down the same mile!

Well done Chloe.

A few photos of the course to come later as we've finally got round to doing the photos for part two of this thread http://overthegate.myfreeforum.org/ftopic5017-0-asc-0.php the walk round the other side of the valley takes us down most of the under 16s out and back course and also covers most of the little people course.

And the results have been posted, an even more impressive performance from Chloe than I though, 6th out of 16 girls in the race (or 8th of 18 counting the 2 involved in the accidental cheating)

That sounds like a good acheivement for both of them

Thanks yep! And the two of them are signed up for the fairly local junior fell racing series this year now, 7 races over the course of the summer.
Given C's progess, last age 4, 13 out of 15 age five now 6 from 16 think she should be winning this before she moves up to the 2 miler (and will probably be running the 2 miler before she is 11!)

Chloe (in the striped top) battling hard for a place about 3/4 of the way round
