Moorland marathon hailed a success
Bookmark and Share
An orienteering event in the moors above a Lancashire town was hailed a success when dozens of people turned up and braved inclement weather to take part.

The annual Mini Mountain Marathon - organised by local athletic club Todmorden Harriers - had a turnout of over 50 runners.

Of those who showed up in running gear to brave the challenge, James Logue came out top with 130 points, with three others joint second with 120.

Those who donned men's running shoes and women's running shoes had to tackle snow, ice and mud as they made their way round the course.

According to the Harriers' website: "A good time was had by all!"

The moors around the area have a number of running events taking place during the course of the year, with the club describing the Noon Stone Fell Race – usually held in late February or early March – as "probably Todmorden's toughest race".

It noted that it is a test of speed, stamina and navigation, with the latter being due to the unmarked nature of much of the course.
