This is a great little race over 4 miles with 1,000 ft of ascent. This year, there were cold wintry showers and it was slippery underfoot on the sodden muddy tracks with ice and snow on the higher ground. Water run offs on the downhill sections made descending very tricky at times (some described it as running down a waterfall). Just two Barlickers took part:
74 Gary Parkinson 45:55
90 Richard Treitl 50:44
Peter Coates of Clayton was the winner in 30:46.
