Kirsteen Takes Another First at Oke Croak Fell Race

Kirsteen Welch took on the Oke Croak Fell Race on Saturday the 8th of June. This race takes the competitors over and through open moorland with no foot paths to guide the runners, it was boggy and difficult underfoot with a lot of climbing/clambering over boulders to reach the top of the Tor’s. It is also a self navigating race with around 2000ft of ascent climbing including Oke Tor, East Mill Tor and Yes Tor with a fast downhill run for the finish. Kirsteen thoroughly enjoyed competing in this event, although navigation would have been an issue had she not managed to keep pace with two other lads. Having done the race on previous occasions they knew the way and with Kirsteen’s speed the three of them powered their way over the moorlands to the finish line. Kirsteen’s time was 1h28m36s, she was the 1st lady over the line and 6th over all.
