Six striders made their way up to Cumbria in the horrendous traffic and rain to run the next headbanger Helvellyn & the Dodds fell race, just 15 miles and 4500ft of ascent (nearly half of this in the first 2 miles) over some leg numbing terrain. Certainly not for the faint hearted.
Well after the rain the sun broke out, underestimated by most but far better than the conditions we were all expecting.
First in for the striders and with an awesome result given the quality of the top runners was
Kenny Malton in 22nd in 2hr 47
Rob Donald 34th in 2h54
Marcel Darling 43rd in 3hr 00
Alex Buckley 62 in 3hr 11
Kate Wray 114th in 3hr 47
Shaun Cooper 119th in 3hr 52
Think a good weekend was had by all?
