RSCAC is not only present in the Walking, Track and Field, or Cross Country scenes. We also do fell running.
Nick Corker had a great outing at the 2016 Anniversary Waltz fell race in the Lake District last Saturday, which also marked the 20th anniversary for this fell race.
In a field 332 runners strong, with an 11 miles race and more than 1,100m of ascent – or 3,609 foot if you prefer – some of which were so steep that they had to be done on all-fours, Nick finished in an excellent 17th place, and covered the distance in 1:49:22.
If you think that cardiac or sandy hills in Sutton Park are too difficult, and need a tip or two on how to climb or come down a mountain like a proper fell runner, have a word with Nick.
