Clent Hills 5

Simon Cooper writes about his racing exploits in the tough Clent 5,

"On Wednesday, 2 braved the Clent Hill 5 mile fell run, myself Simon Cooper and Dave Mole. In a field of around 80 many struggled to run up the Clent Hill without stopping and on a two lap course this was a test of the mind and legs. In over twenty years of racing this was the steepest and longest hill I have ever come across and even the downhill was so steep with loose rocks there was a fear of injury or not being able to stop at the bottom to turn the corner.  Together with mud and rain it was a race to remember. Dave had an excellent run finishing in the top 10 and I believe I was 24th a good run coming back after yet another injury. Tough but enjoyable run."
