Day 3 – Corona Mountain Goat Challenge

Start of what would normally be the ‘working week’, but we find ourselves in anything but normal times… A day where the Prime Minister himself has lent recognition and support to the importance of the Corona Mountain Goat Challenge by explicitly stating that getting out each day to complete a run was on a par with food shopping and essential work journeys 😉 So our intrepid athletes now have their mandate… What will they do with it? What competition strategies are emerging? Or basically were they all knackered after the weekend…

Far from all being on a rest day 19 athletes made the most of the sunshine and put in qualifing runs. But the awesome surprise of the day has been all the new names – just showing that anyone could still win the BIG prize 🙂

The Fluffy Vest honour today went to Hannah Bawdon (club unknown!!) who has been running VERY consistently since the start and put in an impressive 205m. Great running Hannah! But in second place by only 2m (!!!) was Olney Runner Michelle Ramsden logging an awesome 203m ascent. The rest of the field where all close by… Ultra Runner Stella came in third today with a very credible 118m and a progression every day.

So how has day 3 effected the challenge overall?

In the lead group we have Simon in first place at present from Cat who is still very much in touch. Both took rest days today, so tomorrow might be a big day for these two? Great to see a new name getting into the leading pack in the form of Hannah, yet to take her rest day and has been VERY consistent so far, one to watch I think… Good to see Rob (OR) back in the mix today holding onto a very solid fourth place… And after a playing in the Fells yesterday Trevor got himself a cup of tea and well deserved rest!

But the rest of the field is still drafting the lead group – proving that they might be in front for now… but they are only one dodgy curry away from losing everything 🙂 Linda heading up the main group but solid and consistent runs from Lisa Dalton and Stella Barker. And of course after her big day today its fab to see Michelle Ramsden right there too.

Don’t forget the mini-challenge for the £5 Amazon Voucher! Details are on Facebook and the closing deadline for that is Wednesday. If you fancy the chance to win some free money, then plan your runs for the next couple of days with a view to an awesome picture! With only 45 people active just now you stand at least a 1 in 45 chance, which is a bit better than a lottery ticket 😉

All still to compete for. Run safe & solo everyone on Day 4. Now go find some hills!!! 🙂
