  • Only Phil C and me entered so far - where are you all? It'll be a great (long?) day out.


  • That was a long way....:shamed:

  • Fantastic race, I think I preferred it to Ennerdale. The climb/descent of Melbreak and that final run in did me though. Well done to Tim and Pete.
    Winning time 4:02:27
    Phil Clayton 39th, 5:27:59
    Tim Ripper 61st 6:03:20
    Pete Taylor 68th 6:11:33

  • What an awesome race route - a long old way round, but worth it...although yes seeing Melbreak away in the distance as you come round Red Pike was a bit of a 'motivation-destroyer!'
    Sorry to miss you at the end Phil, you must have been running too fast!

  • Yes awesome race, I'm sorry I couldn't stop to see you and Pete finish. Wasdale horseshoe anyone, I'm on the reserve list but going to the start anyway.

  • A reminder from an email sent to CFR from Rhys Findlay Robinson:......\
