Not content with his pb setting performance on Saturday, Mark headed off to Stanage struggle on Sunday, taking along Stacy Newton as a fresh face to fell running. Mark, as always, took it all in his stride. Stacy soon discovered that, surprisingly, downhill can be even harder than uphill. He put in a great performance by completing all the challenging terrain and then twisting his ankle on the flat. Not put off though, he’s already talking about practicing his descending. Chris Gillott was making his racing comeback after a couple of months lay off. His return wasn’t so successful as he managed to aggravate his injury half way round but pushed on to the finish regardless!
