Some recent international Moorfoot activity from Paul Nichol...
My time was slower than planned due to the incredible heat 85 degrees F ~ 30 degrees C. Just as well that the race started at 7.30 in the morning. The weather is known for being unpredictable ~ it snowed one year.
The atmosphere was amazing with crowds 4 deep in some places. Definitely one to to especially since all you have to is pay to get in ~ no qualification required. There are however 45,000 other people there are well so not for the claustrophobic.
Picture attached (before the race). The one after the race is not so good.
