Greg Brock from Cheddar Running Club competed at the Yorkshire Three Peaks Fell Race at the weekend. This popular walking route, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, consist of climbing the three highest peaks in the area: Pen-y-Ghent (694m), Whernside (736m) and Ingleborough (723m) in one continuous circuit.

The running route is 23.4 miles long with a total elevation climb of 5,200 feet, and consists of boggy sections, river crossings, steep ascents and rocky limestone paths. Greg finished in 96th position out of a field of 700 runners, in a time of 3 hours and 51 minutes. A 29 minute personal best from when Greg completed the same race in 2008.
