The nice thing about John Boothman is that he just loves running. He does not mess about targeting races or having a week off because he is saving himself. If he is free and there is a race, he is out there racing. He knows that he is not going to win, but he enjoys the run out, the freedom of the fells and afterwards a well earned pint and a chat with like minded people.
He was our only runner at this race. He was 68th in a time of 56:41 out of a field of 125. It was a bit slower time for him than last year, which he puts down to the heavy going underfoot.
The race was won by Mark Nixon of Pudsey & Bramley in a time of 41:44 with Sam Tosh 2nd, Ian Holmes 3rd and Sam Watson 4th.
Question. Will John run in The Stoop tomorrow?
