Summer challenge time! We suggested a few options to the committee earlier in the year and they chose the Old County Tops option with the idea that we could do the whole thing in daylight this time.
The challenge is pencilled in on the 28th of July. Start and finish are at the Bluebird lake shore in Coniston and Sue has been working out some legs. Here is a first go round to see what you feel like doing:
• Leg 1: Bluebird to Three Shires Stone. 2h
• Leg 2: Bike from 3SS to Travellers' Rest in Grasmere. 1h
• leg 3: Travellers' Rest to Wythburn via Helvellyn. 2h
• leg 4: Wythburn to Cockley Beck via SFP. 4h
• leg 5: Cockley Beck to Bluebird via COM. 2h
It's a fairly straightforward run but with nice legs and a good length. Anyone who'd like to do the whole thing is welcome to choose their own start time. Maps and pictures to follow, and we will think of a suitable task to do on the way.
The rough times above make it a leisurely 11 hours and therefore a 5 or 6am start, but I think we could take an hour or two off if the long leg is done at Josh and Tim sort of speed.
ps. The bike leg looks a bit short until you think about getting to Three Shires in the first place. Lynn Murray can probably do it from home...
