Having been rejected for the London Marathon this year I decided to tackle Manchester marathon as quite a lot of Harriers had done it and enjoyed it. Spurred on by the fact that a good for age was possible. I had to beat last years’ time by 8 minutes to do so, so training started in January.
The Anniversary Waltz is a fell race held each year to celebrate the wedding anniversary of race organisers Steve and Wynn Cliff. For the past 21 yrs it has been held every April in the beautiful Newlands Valley in the heart of the Lake District. Sadly in January this year Steve passed away after losing his couragous battle with Motor Neorone Disease, so Wynn has decided this years race will probably be the last ever one.
