Chris Hobson reports that Four club members took on the Sugar Loaf winter 6 mile fell race in Abergavenny: Unseasonable but lovely sunny warm weather greeted us at the start line today for the Sugar Loaf ‘winter’ 6 mile fell race. A bit of cool cloud cover on the summit was very welcome after 500+ metres of eyes down climbing. It’s always difficult to remember to take a glance at the gorgeous scenery as your lungs and thighs are on fire. A relatively non-technical descent with minimal muddy patches gave everyone a fun and fast downhill split without much risk of broken legs! Dave Wright stormed to team victory after luring us all into a false sense of security by claiming injuries at the start… should’ve known better!
The Pudney’s thoroughly enjoyed their first fell race experience with excellent Welsh hospitality at the local pub afterwards serving good beer and free sandwiches and snacks.
