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.

One of my early memories as a child, was seeing the film The Italian Job and marvelling at the windy mountain roads in the opening scenes, with tree’s, lakes and chalets all around, wishing that one day I could drive along roads like that. Forget the driving part, the immense pleasure out of running a half marathon in such settings is far greater. Thus not in Italy, but in Poland, along with Christian Davies, Mark Gadie (Who didn’t compete in the half due to his careful rehab from injury) and our two Polish friends Grzegorz Simek and Wioleta Zurek, who are not East Hull Harriers (but I’m working on that ;-)) I made this childhood whim a reality.
