Wrecking recce

We arrived safely last night. Fellow Calder Valley runners have been arriving through the day. Things took a turn for the worst once Staff Sergent Stagger arrived and got us out for a full recce - I was only going out to have a look at things from the car park!

The race has it all. Steep, rocky ups. Steeper, rocky descents. Quick technical sections and boggy bits - and even boggier bits. It's going to be a long 11 miles and an altitude busting 4,500 feet of ascent - I'm knackered after just running the recce.
