Kinder Trog Fell race
Unfortunately this year the Kinder Trog fell race which was held on Sunday 15th June 2008, clashed with the club’s own road race and accordingly only one member was available to represent the club in this 16 mile/3490 feet climb race, that person being Andrei Vais. 193 runners set off from the Scout Hut in Hayfield and weather conditions were perfect. Despite a recent injury, Andrei started the race but encountered difficulties on Kinder Downfall plateau when he suffered cramp in his left calf. Helped by a fellow runner, he was able to stretch the calf and get back on his feet, continuing to the next checkpoint. Andrei eventually jogged across the finish line in a time of 2:43:01, finishing 126th overall.
