Race Reports

Mike King headed to Kirkby Stephen to take on the 23 mile Upper Eden Yomp – Mountain Challenge. The Upper Eden Yomp Mountain Challenge was established by the Rotary Club of Upper Eden to commemorate the achievements of the British Forces engaged in the 1982 Falklands Campaign.

The Full Yomp is a serious undertaking. It follows the Mallerstang watershed and includes six summits over 650 metres high.
Mike, who likes to run up hills finished in 3 hours 56 and in 12th place on the day.
