Race Alert! Cardington Cracker 04/12/11

The Cardington Cracker. It's an institution. Over 200 turn out on a cold December day to pay homage to this annual fell race as part of the traditional runners build up to Christmas. It's 9 miles and 2,600 feet of hell but well worth it for the carrot soup followed by a few pints of Shropshire Lad in the Royal Oak. 

Steven, Giles and Michael layer up ready for the 2009 cracker..
At least one intrepid Strider is making the trip this year, John Lawton, if you'd like to accompany him get in touch!

Entry is on the day at £5

FRA Rules state that all runners should carry windproof body cover, map, compass and whistle. All runners will be expected to carry this equipment.
