Several of the Glossopdalers who had ran hard in the mud of Boggart Hole Clough returned the following day to do battle in the local GRAVY PUD FELL RACE. a tough little 5 miler on the hills above Tintwistle. Once again there were many fine personal performances and keen rivalry between the 18 runners from the club. Pride of place must go to the winning Ladies Team and Steve who won his first fell running victory in the V45 category but well done to all the double-dippers and all who ran on this excellent weekend for the club.
