/ kinder downfall race
it was an obvious misnomer as the downfall was in full upfall mode. wind was strong enough to stop me in my tracks at points and i don't think i've ever been so happy to get to kinderlow and know that it's downhill all the way.
it was my first time round and i'm seeing the retrospective enjoyment now. looking forward to next year already
Is there an entry requirement?
Didn't do it really wanted to.. but my flight was 16:00 from MAN back so decided not too
Look at Kinder Trog later in the year, similarish loop, just longer at the start and finish...
Will have a look for some others.

Th experience required is just something that organisers put on there so you don't get novices showing up who have never run more than 10k on the roads. It's just a basic FRA suggestion. If you have run on the fells before and have a bit of racing experience it should be well within your capabilities.
Thanks. The actual website doesn't say anything about it being ER. In fact I'm a bit cheered to see that the only info about it is the price, what time to turn up and where. None of this £35 by PayPal, tshirt, goody bag, and medal stuff.
I've done the LDWA 28mile south downs marathon a couple of times, the Rutland water marathon in November (trail and serious wind chil) and I'm heading over to the Brecons this weekend and will do some more solo running in the hills. I've spent many days winter walking up on Kinder I'd love to run up there. Looks like a good one.
Many thanks to Dave Soles and all who made it happen.
We had a cracking day out. The shower at the Kinder upfall was good fun and very refreshing.
