Tigers Todger - 6miles/850ft

A trip to pastures new, a new race and challenge, always good to put a marker down,

Not fully recovered from the Bob Graham Recce, but wanting to stretch the legs i made my way up into Sheffield to take part in this one, never done it before and saw it a great opportunity to see a few folks and have a run out (i also secretly noticed that i could take a trig during the race)

On arriving i saw that this took in quite a bit of road but also took in a long slow climb up the Limb Valley quick dip onto Burbage Moor, round the Ox Stone's and Trig TP5267 and then.... all hands to the lungs!

all out, full on, "tank it" to the finish off Burbage Moor, and down long lane. A really great race and one that i will be doing again, had a couple of great little battles as well, which made the night.

Legs felt ok, could still feel a lot of long descents in them but i am sure i will be ready for my next assault on Keswick!

Set myself a time of 53 mins for this, and finished in 51min 26 sec leaving me in 187/224.
