The Springvale Spiral at Tim Tett's House
on Thu 15 Dec. 2011
Venue Description - more info
Either the weather, the thought of the climb, or not being able to fathom out the route from the map, meant only a select hardy and/or foolish folks ran in the rarely run long version of the Springvale Spirals (incorporating Sheffield's steepest road - Blake Street). At least two people failed to navigate back to the start on the run in to the finish and one of these had recce'd the course on the Monday - shame on you Mr Tuckett!
At the sharp end, Rob Little who didn't think he could run under the half hour, just managed to pip my 2004 record from me - Ba$%^&"d! If anyone was going to threaten the record it was going to be Rob who's in great form at the moment. Still the v40 record from 2004 (29:24) still remains and will be hard to beat.
Good to see a few females out and a good inaugural women's record going to local Swedish au pair Amanda - she doesn't have hills where she comes from in Sweden so her time was even more remarkable.
Several Pizzas and much quaffing of Thornbridge White Swan post race finished off a great evening.
The next race in the series is the 7 Hills of Sheffield on Tues 10th Jan.
Incorporating Sheffield’s steepest road, followed by visit to the Blake (maybe with food).
Final details are now available above.
