Richard Treitl did this 5 miles / 1001ft ascent race couple of years ago. He was 28 seconds slower this year. It was nothing to do with Richard's declining years, but was down to the significantly larger field holding him back at the start.
The race was won by Chris Donnelly of Sale Harriers in 37:18. Richard finished 170th out of 208 in 1:01:36.
