Last night me and Harry had a brilliant head torch run out with the K & C head torch brigade from the White Lion in Kildwick. Keighley & Craven AC have a social run organised each Wednesday of which a small hardcore always run off road and it was this "lot" that we joined in with.
There were about 8 or 9 of us I think and, from what I can work out, we ran along the canal and then up over Kildwick Moor and Bloomer Hill, along various tracks and through loads of confusing fields, all the way to Cocklicks Farm (yes, really) before turning back at 45º and heading across to Farnhill Pinnacle and then whizzing back down to the pub. 5.25 miles and 644 feet with loads of mud thrown in. In fact Harry was completely plastered when we got home and had to have a shower. Unfortunately we couldn't stop for a drink and the pub grub put on at the White Lion for afters but will do next time.
And my now not very new looking fell shoes have clocked up over 120 miles and they are still absolutely brilliant. Could be the best fell shoes I've ever had in fact:
