Report

One of the few races on this weekend in spite of the adverse weather conditions (?), the 32nd Box Hill Fell Race saw about 200 runners lined up for the 11am start, most of them wrapped up in warm clothes and slightly worry about the snow who falled on the course in the previous 24 hours. And the organiser briefing before the race didn't really helped to relax, especially when it was mentioned that "if the first downhill doesn't scare the **** out of you, then carry on, you'll be fine and see you at the finish". However, soon after the start, we all realised the conditions were fantastic and that it would have been a great day: everything was covered in white, soft snow and the feeling-like-Christmas sceneries were stunning all along. Downhills were particularly fun, including negotiating the way with kids on sledges and the many countless and (mostly) pain-free tumbles. It was magic, running hardly gets any better than this

It was also great to see about 25 Serpies taking part to the race and helping to successfully make a clean sweep: first man home was Harold, first woman was Victoria and we also won the team prize (four to score). Congratulations to all who came along, I'm already looking forward to next year race.
