A blue sky developed and the sun shone on Castleton Show, held on the cricket ground next to the River Esk, surrounded by the heather clad moorland. Sounds pleasant enough? As well as fudge, ferrets and flapjack, a 10k race was on offer, described as ‘a road race for fell runners, a fell race for road runners’. The road race, passing over Dibble Bridge and the ford at Hob Hole, could be described as undulating; let’s just say it was hilly! Good long strength sapping inclines. Lots of faces from Cleveland Hills fell race circuit. Nina had a good run, winning a bottle of wine, to go with the flapjack and home baked corned beef pie she bought at the show. That’s her secret. I ‘toiled’ around the course; my new word for ‘too overly inclined to leg it.’ The course, not me. Recommended afternoon out and there’s always lots of home baking and tea on offer!
